Prof Insights: Faculty-Led Workshop – Professor Herrmann in Ottawa, KS
Listening to C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis continues to be one of the most important modern authors among English-speaking Christians. His fiction has delighted children and adults alike, and his nonfiction has encouraged and challenged the Christian as well as the skeptic. This workshop will look at the thought and writings of C.S. Lewis especially as it intersects with themes important for Lutherans — e.g. theology of the cross, faith, science and reason, and the role of beauty for belief and ethics. There is no pre-requisite reading for this workshop, but if one wishes, recommended readings include The Weight of Glory, The Problem of Pain, The Four Loves and Till We Have Faces.
Professor of Historical Theology; Dean of Theological Research and Publication; Director of the Center for Reformation Research; and Director of Concordia Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
Dr. Erik Herrmann is emerging as one of the leading Luther scholars in the world as evidenced by an invitation extended to him to give a plenary paper at the International Luther Congress. His academic interests in Luther studies are complemented by an equally strong interest in questions related to Lutheran piety and the devotional writings of the late Middle Ages and Reformation especially as they pertain to pastoral care.
