Where does Christology, Cosmology, and C. S. Lewis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I heard Dr. Ward lecture on Lewis' cosmology and the Narnia series at a C.S. Lewis seminar in Oxford in 2013. I was mesmerized both by his extensive knowledge of the Lewis corpus and his obvious love for the Narnian stories. This short course is an overview of Lewis' theory that each book in the series follows the "values" of a planet in the Medieval pre-Copernican cosmology. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is based on Jupiter, Prince Caspian is based on Mars, etc. The famously secretive Lewis never expressed that this was his strategy in writing the books. However, Ward, in his doctoral studies, gleaned this in a flash of insight. He published his theory in his outstanding books, Planet Narnia and The Narnia Code. His theory has gained nearly universal acclaim. Lewis spells out this Medieval cosmology in several of his works including his more popular book, The Discarded Image and in his academic work English Literature in the 16th century. Ward is a fantastic lecturer, and each chapter is packed with fresh insights. Anyone who loves The Chronicles of Narnia will love this audio course. And any parent or grandparent who reads the Chronicles of Narnia to his children will glean new understandings even in the simple out-loud reading of Lewis' books.You'll love this course!
What other book might you compare Christology, Cosmology, and C. S. Lewis to and why?
The Narnia Code and Planet Narnia, also by Michael Ward, PhD
What does Dr. Michael Ward PhD bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
