Timothy WillardComment

Definitely worth a listen as @alisteremcgrath talks about Lewis:

In an audio portrait, using archive and contemporary accounts, biographers Alister McGrath and Nicholas Murray explore the events that shaped Lewis and Huxley’s lives. Taking some of the authors’ seminal works - such as Lewis’s ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ and Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’, - they explore some of the ideas and visions of the future that made Lewis and Huxley such influential and prophetic figures of the 20th century.

Timothy Willard loves to sit with his wife by the bonfire and make up stories about Tom the Backyard-Badger for his three lovely daughters. When he's not carving up the Appalachian Mountains on his Salsa El Mariachi, you can find him busy writing a book, collaborating on a book, or reading a book written by someone dead and gone. Timothy studied beauty in the works of C.S. Lewis under theologian Alister McGrath. The author of five books, including Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society (Zondervan), Timothy is currently finishing The Life-Changing Adventure of Chasing Beauty (Eerdmans, 2019), preparing his doctoral thesis for publication, and trying to find a publisher for his first novel The Tempest and the Bloom. He lives somewhere in the south Charlotte woods.
