British author Steve Turner will visit Payson Library on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 4 p.m. 50 years after the death of C. S. Lewis to speak on Lewis' lasting impact upon Christian philosophy and its relationship to the Christian worldview.
In this talk Turner will explore the legacy of C. S. Lewis, whose impact on popular culture through his fiction carries with it a deeply Christian philosophy and view of the world. Turner will examine C. S. Lewis in the context of the 21st century and how fifty years after his death, his work continues to resonate and grow in the power of its message.
Turner is a Christian poet, journalist, biographer, and author of several books that explore the relationship between popular culture and religion. He is the author of Amazing Grace: The Story of America's Most Beloved Song, and Popcultured, which attempts to get, as Turner says, "Christians thinking Christianly about such areas as comedy, journalism, advertising, and the internet."
