In the Heights and Depths with C. S. Lewis

Online Class



Edith Humphrey, William F. Orr Professor of New Testament, PTS


Sept. 18-Oct. 13, 2017


In this online course we will consider together two short books by Lewis: his children's novel, The Silver Chair, in which the reader quite literally explores heights and depths, while also considering some heady and challenging concepts; and his most debated adult novel, The Great Divorce, in which we visit Heaven with a busload of visitors from the world of shadows. Be prepared for adventures, both theological and practical, as we read.

The class will be self-paced and available for participants to engage with the instruction at their own convenience, i.e., offered asynchronously, no set times that you need to sit in front of your computer. If you would like more information, e-mail
