Description

Dr. Ralph Wood Speaks on C.S. Lewis' "The Great Divorce"

The C.S. Lewis Institute - Northeast Ohio presents free Community Lecture Series event March 21, 2019

Professor of Theology & Literature Dr. Ralph Wood explores and interprets the Christian conceptions of Heaven and Hell, as portrayed in C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce.

Dr. Wood will reveal the relevance of this book to the witness of the Church, as well as to the life of secular culture.
