C.S. LEWIS AND THE INKLINGS, Part 1
C.S. Lewis, novelist, poet, literary critic, is considered by many as one of the great Christian thinkers and writers of the 20th century. His books on Christian faith have inspired millions, and his series The Chronicles of Narnia have won him a legion of fans among young readers. But Lewis is also known for being part of the legendary literary group, The Inklings, at Oxford University. Included in this circle of poets and novelists were J.R.R. Tolkien; Owen Barfield, philosopher and author of the ground-breaking book on the meaning of poetry, Poetic Diction; and Charles Williams, famed for his writing of "spiritual thrillers". In this two-part series IDEAS producer Frank Faulk looks at the vision forged by C.S. Lewis and The Inklings on what it means to be fully human. Part 2 airs Thursday, October 17.
