Interviewing Dead C.S. Lewis
4 days ago
Only one recording remains of C.S. Lewis’ radio show which aired during WWII. This was a tough time for people living in England. Not only did the families of soldiers deal with death on a regular basis, but families throughout the country lived in constant fear of German planes dropping bombs. In light of these bleak circumstances, the BBC’s director of religious programming asked C.S. Lewis to prepare broadcast talks on faith over the radio in an effort to bring a means of hope in a very hopeless era. It started as an experiment that ended up being a huge hit on the BBC.
Join us as Sean Sevy interviews the late C.S. Lewis, who joins us from a BBC studio in 1944. Lewis talks about what it means to be a true Christian. He explains how being a Christian requires taking on the personality of deity, and how this doesn’t require one to forfeit their own personality.
Anyone who has read C.S. Lewis’ books knows that his works would be just as relevant if they were written yesterday. Likewise, the words of this interview have no trouble jumping in time from 1944 to 2016.
