For people who want to know more about C. S. Lewis (whatever your present level of knowledge) this is an excellent program. The level of education both informative and comfortable.

This is quite a superb program: thorough, balanced and easy to assimilate, very interesting, taught by quite a likable professor who is acknowledged as superb in his field.

i remember the advice from a close friend in college - don't take a course, take a professor. I'm passing it on - take Don King. I can't wait for his new book to come out. It'll be about C.S.Lewis's wife, Joy Davidman.

This was a wonderful, exciting, and rewarding program. It is the type of activity with which I want to fill my retirement. It is not possible to say enough good things about the presenter, Dr. Don King, the content, and the facility.

Don King as an awesome C.S. Lewis scholar. He presents Lewis as a real person, not just a stuffy Oxford don. Although I'd read several of Lewis' works (but not in depth), King makes the person and the writings very real. Montreat is lovely in the summer ( a pleasant respite from the heat of the the coastal Carolinas. Lodging and meals were excellent.)

If you have either a major or minor interest in C. S. Lewis this is the program to attend. Dr. Don King, of Montreat College, does an excellent job of presenting Lewis' life and writings in a non opinionated manner, leaving the listener to draw his or her own conclusions. Dr. King is a true Lewis Scholar. The course setting, in the NC Mountains, is both beautiful as well as inspirational.

Don't miss this opportunity to enter the world of C. S. Lewis and realize for the first time - or anew - what a contribution he made to all ages and stages and our spirituality.
