Imagine: C. S. Lewis on the Role of Imagination in the Defense of Christianity
September 17, 2012 Length: 82:28In the opening lecture of the Fall 2012 Saint Katherine College Forum, Dr. Michael Ward argues that C. S. Lewis was successful as an apologist because he recognized the necessary place of the imagination in the defense of Christianity.

Keep up the good work!"
