C.S. Lewis & The Centrality of Hope

C.S. Lewis called Joy the catalyst of his conversion—that is, a longing that cannot be satisfied by anything in this life. It beckons, and in Lewis it becomes the source of Hope, the central feature of his religious writing. Here, an all-too-brief excursion into his work examines the qualities of Hope and Lewis’ evocation of it.

James Como, professor emeritus of rhetoric and public communication at York College (CUNY), is a renowned expert on C.S. Lewis. He lectures widely, has published three books and appeared in five documentaries, and authored dozens of articles on the man he calls his “earthly master.”
