    Lessons from the Life of a Scholar: C. S. Lewis and His Legacy

    7:00 pmDr Jacqueline Glenny | The Round Church, Cambridge

    Best known for his seven-book series, the Chronicles of Narnia, C. S. Lewis was a scholar and writer of exceptional ability. Today, however, the scale and variety of his contributions to literature and thought are often obscured. Dr Jacqueline Glenny will introduce us afresh to a man and a mind of enduring influence who had a deep connection to Cambridge.

The American filmmaker Terrence Malick (known for A Thin Red Line, Tree of Life and Knight of Cups) is one of cinema’s most mysterious figures. Notably camera shy and often called a recluse, Malick has released only seven films since his 1973 debut – five of them after a twenty-year hiatus. Philip Johnston (L'Abri Fellowship Hampshire) traces how Malick's canon reveals a compelling ideological trajectory from nihilism to a more Christian sensibility.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12164234/philip-johnston-nature-and-grace-in-the-work-of-terrence-malick.mp3[/embed]...

Bertrand Russell comments that 'evidence is not enough' for the existence of God. This talk argues that the 'hiddenness' of God is not something to be apologetically defended. In terms of who God is, He must hide in order to be true to Himself.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12164424/andrew-fellows-not-enough-evidence-why-god-hides.mp3[/embed]...

For all the breadth of information and entertainment the virtual world provides, it is difficult for moderns to shake the sense that it also reflects our increasing lack of moral depth and wisdom.

The 'Anxiety of Modernity' isn't a far-off, abstract concept. Rather, it is something that each of us deals with on a daily basis. Andrew Fellows addresses the topic of Modernity and discusses what the Bible says about how we should approach life in the modern age.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12163040/andrew-fellows-living-in-the-machine-the-anxiety-of-modernity.mp3[/embed]...
