“Calling, Connection and Reporting the Truth in Today’s Culture”
According to Lewis, our upbringing, talents and circumstances are a “tolerable index of our calling.” Looking into these, especially his home life, his passion for myth, and his training as a scholar and broadcast journalist, we see how Lewis was uniquely prepared to connect with his own as well as today’s postmodern audience and what we might learn from him. Given the extraordinary tension between telling the truth and journalism in today’s culture, we’ll include a closer look at how Lewis speaks to the calling of journalism.
