The popularity of C.S. Lewis among Lutherans might at first blush seem odd - there are several major theological divergences between Lewis' high church Anglicanism and Lutheran theology. However, our symposium will explore some deeper theological connections between the theological vision expressed in Lewis' devotional and fictional writings and Lutheran theology. Themes of grace, discipleship, ethics, and the purpose of theology in Lewis and Luther will be addressed. Our speaker is Rev. Dr. Rob Saler of Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis.
Robert C Saler is research fellow and director of the Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis. He has published widely in Pro Ecclesia, Dialog, Christian Century, American Journal of Theology and Philosophy, and Currents in Theology and Mission. In addition, he has contributed to recent editions of The Christological Controversy and The Trinitarian Controversy from Fortress. He received his BA summa cum laude from Valparaiso University, an MA in theology from the Divinity School at the University of Chicago, and the M.Div., Th.M. and Ph.D. (with distinction) from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. He has pursued additional study at the University of Notre Dame.
