Weekly Specials: C.S. Lewis

Next week, Desiring God will host its 2013 National Conference in Minneapolis, MN. The conference theme for this year is “The Romantic Rationalist: God, Life & Imagination in the Work of C. S. Lewis.”

In light of the upcoming conference and Lewis’s profound and lasting influence on modern evangelicalism, we’ve discounted a number of books related to “Jack’s” (as he was known to friends) life, writings, and legacy. We’re also including this week two volumes inspired by past Desiring God national conferences, Finish the Mission and Thinking. Loving. Doing.
