The C.S. Lewis podcast

Religion & Spirituality

A weekly podcast from Premier Unbelievable? with Professor Alister McGrath exploring C.S. Lewis’ thought, theology and teaching. C.S. Lewis is one of the most influential voices in modern Christianity. The 20th Century British writer and lay theologian has profoundly impacted Christians around the world and brought many atheists and agnostics to faith in Jesus. One person whose faith was greatly encouraged by the writings of C.S. Lewis is Professor Alister McGrath. Both men were raised in Northern Ireland, studied at Oxford University and went on to become professors there. They also both came to faith from atheism slightly later in life. Alister has written numerous books on C.S. Lewis, including a seminal biography C.S. Lewis – A Life. Every Monday, Ruth Jackson and Professor Alister McGrath will reflect on C.S. Lewis’ ideas, life and influence as well as trying to answer questions that impact culture today.

  • What a find!

    I’m really enjoying this show. I didn’t know that much about CS Lewis when I started listening, but this podcast has really helped me get into his work and I’m loving it. Thank you so much Ruth and Alister, I’m a huge fan of the show.

  • Good in parts

    I feel this is very strong on CSL’s theology and Narnia, less strong on his other work. It has been quite dismissive of his writing on literature, which is actually well worth reading. It dismissed his work on 16th century English literature as ‘a big dull book’! I’ve always really enjoyed the Space trilogy and don’t understand why this podcast is treating it in the way it is. No mention yet of Olaf Stapleton’s books which were an important influence on the Space trilogy or of CSL’s lifelong lov... more

    I agree with the podcast’s analysis on how C.S Lewis’s beliefs effected the story. I agree because after C.S Lewis’s beliefs were made clear I could better see why and how the aliens culture and beliefs came about as well as Ransoms.

    I just found this podcast after a random salesperson mentions C. S. Lewis to me. “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” Thank you!
