Join us on Wednesday, September 20 at 7:00 p.m. as English literary critic and theologian Fr. Michael Ward, Ph.D., will be on campus to discuss the CS Lewis 1943 series of lectures published as the Abolition of Man. The title of his lecture is "The Abolition of Man: C.S. Lewis’s Most Philosophical Work, But Is It Christian?" The topic surrounds ethics and the consequences of the denial of objectivity.
Fr. Ward works at the University of Oxford where he is a member of the Faculty of Theology and Religion. He is the author of the award-winning Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis (Oxford University Press) and co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis (Cambridge University Press). He is also author of the 2021 book After Humanity: A Guide to C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man.
Though based at Oxford in his native England, Dr. Ward is also employed as Professor of Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, Texas, teaching one course per semester as part of the online MA program in Christian Apologetics, and is a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan.
