Following the success of 2012’s course based on The King’s Speech we will be using another course by the same author, Hilary Brand. Not a Tame Lion is a five-week Lent course based around the writings of C S Lewis and the films The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and Shadowlands. The course aims to bring ideas from C S Lewis’s writing to a wider contemporary audience. In doing so it looks at issues including suffering, God’s absence, the gift of the present moment, heaven, judgement, and the force of evil. Each film clip is related to one of the sayings of Jesus as found in the gospels.
The course will start 7.45 for 8pm to 9.30 pm on Tuesdays from 19th February to 19th March at St. Johns. It will be helpful if those coming will sign up on the sheets at St Marys and St John’s so that we have an idea how many books to buy.
