CSL and Home Schooling

August 26th, 2005 | Skip to comments

I was privileged today to meet with some home schooled children and parents here in a private home in Bowling Green to discuss Lewis’s life and the upcoming Narnia movie.

I remarked on Lewis’s upbringing, and relation to the experience of home schooling at the hands of William Kirkpatrick, known in Lewis’s autobio work, Surprised by Joy as “The Great Knock,” which was formative in his eventual coming to be a Christian–despite the fact that by then Kirkpatrick was an atheist. God does not waste anything!

The group will be studying the Space Trilogy this fall, and the students come from all of NW Ohio in a co-op arrangement. Very impressive and great fun!
