“Surprised by Joy”: Apologetics and the Imagination - Given by Linny Dey

July 10, 2018

A lecture given by Linny Dey at Southborough L'Abri on July 6th, 2018. For more information, visit www.labri.org/mass and for more L'Abri lectures, visit the L'Abri Ideas Library.


While “honest answers to honest questions” are still helpful for some, there are fewer questioners and fewer people today who believe that there is one answer that fits all.  If Christianity is the truth which all people need, Christians need to consider ways other than reasoned argument to make that truth clear.  This lecture will look at how understanding the significance of the imagination and our imaginative vision of reality can be an aid in developing a different kind of apologetics.  We’ll look at, among other things, how the great thinker C.S. Lewis’s conversion to Christianity, his being “surprised by joy”, was primarily a conversion of his imagination.
