C. S. Lewis and the Oxford Circle
ENG 423 explores Lewis’s vision of the Christian life as found in his fictional writings and those authors with whom he was associated.
Directed Lewis Studies
ENG 391 is available to anyone who has finished both the English and the philosophy classes. Currently, we are developing a travel class to Oxford and the Kilns, Lewis’s home.
Nationally-known Lewis experts, such as Micheal Flaherty and Chris Mitchell, are frequently brought to Asbury for campus-wide lectures and events such as Narnia Night.
Over 1,000 people attended Asbury’s “Narnia Night 3: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” program held in December 2010, just before the Fox/Walden Media release of the film. In 2008 and in 2005, we also hosted “Narnia Night” celebrations to large audiences. The campus community and local friends were able to see special, exclusive footage from all three Narnia films at these events.
