C. S. Lewis was a Christian theologian who authored over 70 books, including The Space Trilogy, and The Chronicles of Narnia.
This weekend in Petoskey, the annual C. S. Lewis Festival will celebrate Lewis’ imagination.
The authors of the book, The Surprising Imagination of C. S. Lewis say he had a nuanced understanding regarding imagination. They Identify over 30 different types of imagination that Lewis recognized and used in his writings.
Mark Neal is one of those authors, and a featured speaker at the festival in Petoskey. He says the nuanced approach to imagination helps us better understand reality.
"It's this idea that it helps us to see things that, without it, would be unseeable," Neal says.
