C.S. Lewis College

Speaking of the Great Books (of the Western World) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_books , the C.S. Lewis Foundation in Redlands, California, is on the cusp of founding C.S. Lewis College, using the Great Books for its curriculum. Their website says,

“Inspired by the life and legacy of C.S. Lewis, the C.S. Lewis Foundation is dedicated to advancing the renewal of Christian thought and creative expression throughout the world of learning and the culture at large.

“As part of its long-range vision, the Foundation looks forward to founding a fully accredited, four-year “Great Books” college with a School of the Visual and Performing Arts.

“The College will be rooted in the historic Christian faith and so structured as to ensure its fidelity to that profession. It will be characterized by a firm commitment to ‘Mere Christianity,’ and therefore be inclusive of Christians of all traditions.

“In the spirit of C.S. Lewis, the envisioned college will actively encourage opportunities to discover the vitality and profound relevance of the Christian faith as it is lived openly within the larger pluralistic setting of mainstream colleges and universities.

“The Foundation is prayerfully seeking benefactors of vision who might wish to enable the founding of C.S. Lewis College. Please visit our other college pages listed on the right to learn more about this exciting development in higher education.”
