Join Dr. Jerry Root in this unique course that explores the writings that influenced C.S. Lewis. Filmed at the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, this course offers you a look at books owned by Lewis, including the notes and comments that he wrote in them. Dr. Root, who has been studying Lewis for over forty years, unpacks these works and explains why they were important in Lewis’ life and how they influenced his writings. You’ll come away from the course with a better understanding of C.S. Lewis and of some of the classic literature that inspired him.
Dr. Root is the author of C.S. Lewis and a Problem of Evil: An Investigation of a Pervasive Theme; the coauthor of The Surprising Imagination of C.S. Lewis: An Introduction, The Sacrament of Evangelism, and The Quotable C.S. Lewis; and the coauthor and coeditor of The Soul of C.S. Lewis: A Meditative Journey through Twenty-Six of His Best Loved Writings. He has contributed to many other edited works about C.S. Lewis and has published numerous articles about Lewis, evangelism, discipleship, and spiritual formation.
In addition to all things Lewis, Dr. Root enjoys traveling, wine-making, American football, bungee jumping, and rich conversation with everyone he meets.
