Overview

From May 31 to June 3, 2018, the 11th biennial Colloquium on C.S. Lewis & Friends convened at Taylor University to consider “The Faithful Imagination.” This volume focuses on the roots and shoots of authors who linked the imaginative life with faithfulness to truth. From considerations of the philosophical/theological roots of the imagination as theorized in Coleridge and MacDonald, the essays branch out to look at the specific influences of family, war, love, death, trees, Belfast, and the Bible on the idiosyncratic imaginations of Lewis and Friends.
