“What led to C.S. Lewis converting to Christianity is this particular question,” according to Ken Wytsma, President of Kilns College and Founder of The Justice Conference. C.S. Lewis went on a walk with Hugo Dyson and J.R.R. Tolkien, on which they discussed the similarity of Christianity with other ancient religions. “At the end of that walk, C.S. Lewis will say he went from being an atheist to a theist.” Rather than seeing Christianity as false because it is similar to other religions, he instead began to see every religion as having traces of the grand narrative of creation.
Ken mentions a lot of fun stuff in this video…read more about it on Wikipedia:
• Addison’s Walk
• C.S. Lewis
• Hugo Dyson
• J.R.R. Tolkien
• The Inklings (Okay, he didn’t mention this in the video, but he could have. The Inklings was a writing group that Dyson, Tolkien and Lewis all belonged to)
