I have done longer lectures and fireside chats about C.S. Lewis’ life. As someone who lived a rich life, writing book after book that changed the way we think, I have always taken about an hour to capture the whole of his life. My challenge, then, was to create a 20-minute version of this life, one that gives an outline of the whole without losing Lewis’ large personality.
To do this, I used a chronology to focus the talk. As I did with my previous “Timeline of C.S. Lewis’ Major Talks,” I used JBS Timeline’s app to capture Lewis’ life in 20 minutes.
There are challenges, of course. I may adapt the timeline itself so that it has some videos within it. But I think it works well to lay out the major events in C.S. Lewis’ life. Unfortunately, JBS Timeline is not yet connected to WordPress, but you can click here to get “A Life of C.S. Lewis Timeline.
And the timeline worked for the video! You can click here to see the entire 20-minute lecture. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to share or comment.
