A literary scholar who worked at Oxford and Cambridge, Lewis loved medieval literature that “at first looks planless, though all is planned.” In Narnia, he imitates this example, structuring the series to embody the seven planets of the medieval cosmos. Believing in the importance of hiddenness in literature and theology, Lewis kept secret his imaginative blueprint. Once you unearth the mystery of Narnia, you will find new treasures buried in these magical tales.

Looking at Lewis’s works with a fresh perspective, you will find their Christian wisdom and brilliant storytelling more intriguing than ever before. Let the creative genius of C.S. Lewis inspire you today.

He teaches at Blackfriars Hall in the University of Oxford and Houston Baptist University in Texas. Dr. Ward is the author of the bestselling and award-winning Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S.

On the fiftieth anniversary of Lewis’s death (November 22, 2013), Dr. Ward had the privilege of unveiling a permanent national memorial to him at Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey. He is the co-editor of C.S. Lewis at Poets’ Corner, a book of essays about this commemoration. Dr. Ward studied English at Oxford and theology at Cambridge, and he earned a Ph.D. in Divinity from the University of St. Andrews. For three years, he served as resident warden of The Kilns, Lewis’s Oxford home.

His listeners will discover that learning from him is a true joy.”
