Mark Noll – C.S. Lewis in America
‘Perhaps no other literary figure has transformed the American religious landscape in recent history as much as C.S. Lewis. Even before the international publication and success of his ‘Narnia Chronicles’ or ‘Mere Christianity’ Lewis was already being read ‘across the pond’ in America. But who exactly was reading his work? And how was he received?’
Brent talks with Mark Noll about his new IVP book in the Hanson Lectureship Series (with contributions by Karen J. Johnson, Kirk Farney and Amy Black) ‘C.S. Lewis in America: Reading and Reception, 1935-1947’.
Mark is emeritus professor of history at Wheaton College and the University of Notre Dame. He’s the author of a number of books including ‘The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind’.
