About

If you are reading this, you have probably read something by C. S. Lewis.  Lewis’ books remain popular with millions of people all over the world, and his popularity seems to have only begun.

Over the years, as I have met with people and discussed Lewis with them, I have found that they may have liked a particular book, but found parts of it difficult in some way.  Or, they tried to read this or that book by Lewis, but had to put it down.  They couldn’t follow what he was saying.  I have told them that I sympathize!  Probably you do, too.

I have also found that people want to discuss Lewis’ insights and dig deeper into his ideas.  They want to explore the implications of what Lewis has written and consider how they apply to their own personal lives and communities.

These are the reasons I have begun revbeckmann.com.

I have spent much of my life trying to figure out the harder parts of Lewis’ writings and explaining them to people.  As we have talked in classes, at retreats, or informally in my home, people have expressed to me that they found my explanations helpful.  My goal has been to help people understand Lewis’ work better and to profit more from it.

I plan to post to the blog at least weekly and I invite you to comment on the posts.  Hopefully we can have some good conversations that way.

I will soon have video courses and other things about Lewis that you can download or to which you can subscribe.

You are also invited to send me questions via e-mail to revbeckmann @ gmail.com.  If you have a question, others likely have the same questions and a post on it may be in order.

I hope you will join in with our community and I look forward to our mutually learning more and more with the help of Professor Lewis!
