Mission & Purpose

The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.

The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.

C. S. Lewis

On Friday, October 22, 2010 approximately 100 people gathered for the lecture, "'We Are Made for Heaven:' An Introduction to C. S. Lewis" featuring Dr. Michael Travers, Professor of English, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

A professor of medieval and Renaissance literature at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, C. S. Lewis became one of the best-known Christian writers of the twentieth century. Once he came to faith in Christ in 1931, he wrote numerous books and articles in which he explained or demonstrated the Christian faith. He has influenced people in all walks of life to think seriously about Christianity, and it is important that we have some idea of what he wrote and thought. Accordingly, Dr. Traver's lecture considered such questions as, "Why should we, as evangelical Christians, read C. S. Lewis?" and "How can Lewis help us think about our faith and the culture around us?" The lecture included a brief biography of C. S. Lewis which included pictures of Lewis and of significant places in Lewis's life, as well as a short audio clip of Lewis's robust voice. Primarily, however, the lecture focused on what Lewis thought about evangelism, apologetics, fiction, Christian community, and culture. 

Following the lecture a number of intriguing questions were asked during the question and answer time. Covering a range of topics, questions were asked about significance of specific characters in Lewis's books as well as his doctrinal positions on issues such as purgatory and eternal security.

Also at the event  the Center's Director announced the inception of the C. S. Lewis Society at Wake Forest which will be under the direction of the Center for Faith and Culture. Details regarding this new opportunity at the Center are forthcoming.
