A weekly podcast with Professor Alister McGrath exploring C.S. Lewis’ thought, theology and teaching.
C.S. Lewis is one of the most influential voices in modern Christianity. The 20th Century British writer and lay theologian has profoundly impacted Christians around the world and brought many atheists and agnostics to faith in Jesus.
One person whose faith was greatly encouraged by the writings of C.S. Lewis is Professor Alister McGrath. Both men were raised in Northern Ireland, studied at Oxford University and went on to become professors there. They also both came to faith from atheism slightly later in life. Alister has written numerous books on C.S. Lewis, including a seminal biography C.S. Lewis – A Life.
Every Monday, Ruth Jackson and Professor Alister McGrath will reflect on C.S. Lewis’ ideas, life and influence as well as trying to answer questions that impact culture today.

Honest, refreshing, educational
A relaxed, frank, down-to-earth insight into C.S. Lewis' journey from staunch atheism to reconciling scientific doubts rationally, even whilst in the midst of personal struggles. Interesting concepts are told in a way that's accessible and easy to grasp. I'm not too up on my C.S. Lewis reading but this podcast has helped me at a low point in my life and left me feeling hopeful, positive and keen to read more into C.S. Lewis. Thank you to everyone on the podcast and I'm looking forward to more episodes!(Just wish episodes were longer; I could listen all day!)
C S Lewis Podcast
Excellent stuff. I’m a big fan of C S Lewis, but still plenty to learn here. Great conversation about the man and his message
Interesting, but …
I hope this will develop more depth as it progresses. And there’s a rather bad error in Episode 1: CSL was Not an Oxford professor! A major reason for his move to Cambridge was the offer of a Chair.
