Conversation about C. S. Lewis on The Wardrobe Door

I am honored to have been asked to participate in the "Conversations about C. S. Lewis" Series over at The Wardrobe Door.

I got to talk about my first encounter reading Lewis, my favorite Lewis book and quote, his biggest impact on me personally, and more!

Head on over to The Wardrobe Door to read the full interview.

Here is a snippet:
WD: Why do you think he continues to maintain such influence in modern evangelicalism?
Me: Lewis articulates the Truth of the Gospel in vastly creative ways in his writings. He helps us grasp at truths about God with our imaginations. That is why I believe he continues to maintain the influence that he does in modern evangelicalism.
Not to mention his intelligence and giftedness as a writer and communicator, his ability to talk about theology on a lay person’s level, and the genuine honesty and humility with which he writes.
