Public Lecture

The Genius of C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity

Tuesday, Jul 12, 2016 at 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM (Pacific Time)

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.

Since 2001 Mere Christianity has sold over three and a half million copies in English alone. What accounts for the lasting vitality of this volume? This lecture will recount the unusual origins of this remarkable book and reflect on why, in contrast with the vast majority of books, its popularity has increased rather than declined. The lecture will be drawn from Professor Marsden’s new study, C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity: A Biography (in the Princeton University Press series “The Lives of Great Religious Books.”)

Following the lecture, join Professor Marsden and his host, Don Lewis, at the Regent College bookstore for the release of Professor Marsden's book, C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity: A Biography. We hope to see you there!

Professor Marsden has taught history at Calvin College, Duke University Divinity School, and the University of Notre Dame. His books include Fundamentalism and American CultureThe Soul of the American UniversityThe Outrageous Idea of Christian ScholarshipJonathan Edwards: A Life, and The Twilight of the American Enlightenment: The 1950s and the Crisis of Liberal Belief(New York: Basic Books). He is currently working on a book about C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity.

Professor Marsden will be teaching "The Renaissance of the Evangelical Mind" from July 11 - 15 as part of our 2016 summer programs at Regent College.Learn more at
