Soak In the Wisdom and Joy of C.S. Lewis This Weekend

I hope the last few posts have persuaded you that you need to read The Weight of Glory. The full insights of Lewis's sermon can't be appreciated just from the parts I have quoted. The flow of his argument is brilliant and reading the 10 pages all the way through is an experience of wonder.

There is another feast available this weekend for those who have delighted in the wisdom and the brilliance of C.S. Lewis's thinking. The Desiring God conference for 2013 is entitled: The Romantic Rationalist: God, Life, and Imagination in the Work of C.S. Lewis. From Friday, September 27 through Sunday, September 29, desiringgod.org will be live-streaming the talks and messages from the conference for anyone who wants to watch them for free. After the conference, usually within a week or less, they will all be available online at desiringgod.org to watch or download (still for free).

In advance of the conference, John Piper has put together a free e-book summarizing the influence C.S. Lewis has had on his life and Christian thinking, including helping him behold the wonder of God in Creation and the romance and poetry of life. The title is Alive to Wonder. You can download it here as a PDF or for Kindle, Nook, etc.
