Honouring C.S. Lewis

On this day in 1963, Clive Staples Lewis passed away. He was famously known as the author of “The Chronicles of Narnia.” However, Lewis was also known for his Christian writings including: “Mere Christianity,” “The Screwtape Letters,” and “The Problem of Pain.” He was a great defender of the Christian faith and I respect his writings greatly. Lewis’ writings have had a great influence on many pastors today including John Piper & Timothy Keller.

In the summer of 2012, I was fortunate enough to spend 2 weeks in England. On 2 August 2012, I took a day trip to Oxford from London and was blessed to visit all of these historical sites relating to C.S. Lewis. Here are some of the pictures of my memories from that trip…

C.S. Lewis lived close to a nature reserve (which is now called the C.S. Lewis Community Nature Reserve). It was at this reserve that Lewis dreamed up Narnia

This is the church that C.S. Lewis attended in his lifetime. It is called Holy Trinity Church. It is on Trinity Road in Headington Quarry in Oxford

Inside the church, there are shrines to C.S. Lewis to honour his memory

C.S. Lewis and his brother Warren would often go to a pub called “Mason’s Arms.” This pub was just a quick walk away from the church and on the way to the walk back home

Speaking of pubs, I will finish with photos from the historic “Eagle & Child Pub” where C.S. Lewis used to meet regularly with a group called “The Inklings.” Among the few regulars in this group included Lewis’ friend J.R.R. Tolkien
