r35 – Debating in Writing
September 11, 2012
C.S. Lewis was no stranger to debate, but did you know he encountered it at times when his essays were published?
In 1940 Lewis wrote an article entitled “Christianity and Culture” that was published in the March issue of the journal Theology. Two months later S.L. Bethell and E.F. Carritt responded to what he said.
Then in June Lewis replied back, which lead to George Every joining in the discussion three month later. It all ended when Lewis closed out the year with his final reply in December. While the issue of the relationship between culture and Christianity can be complex, you can find the opinion Lewis held at the time in the essay collection Christian Reflections which was first published in 1967.
