November “Towers” looks at the life and writing of C.S. Lewis

Communications Staff — November 7, 2011

The November issue of “Towers” is now on stands and online.

When, last November, we asked members of Southern Seminary’s faculty, “Who are the authors or books that have shaped you?” C.S. Lewis’ name and writings were a consistent refrain. And it makes sense. From children’s stories to adult fiction, from fantasies to epic poems, from academic to apologetic works, Lewis’ writings cover almost every age group and interest. The new issue of “Towers” features Boyce College dean, Dan DeWitt, writing about the influence English poet G.K. Chesterton had on Lewis, a musing from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, first impressions of Lewis’ writings by SBTS faculty past and then I survey some of Lewis’ lesser-known works.

Also in the November “Towers,” SBTS professor of Christian apologetics Mark Coppenger talks about his new book, Moral Apologetics for Contemporary Christians. For the November “Southern Story,” Josh Hayes profiles new Southern assistant professor of music and worship, Chuck Lewis.
