I've been away from blogging for a while, but I have been busily at work. I'm continuing to write regularly at New Evangelizers, which I've been cross-posting to my Ho Kai Paulos can find my articles here. My class in Natural Theology - an outgrowth of my "God from the Ground Up" blogs - has been running now at the Dominican Institute.   The Baptized Imagination May 1, Read Next. Chesterton on Aquinas vs. Luther. This article was originally published in my column at the Colson Center. Lewis had seen this book before, but had never bothered to buy it. This afternoon as he waited for the train, Lewis picked up the book and took a closer look. During that stage in Lewis.   C. S. Lewis's Baptized Imagination (Why I love C. S. Lewis) In , when C.S. Lewis was 18 (and still an atheist), he bought and read George MacDonald’s Phantastes: A Faerie Romance for Men and Women.

C.S. Lewis has influenced countless individuals but do you know who affected him so much that a book by that author baptized Lewis’ imagination? There are many authors that C.S. Lewis enjoyed from an earlier age, but one that stayed with him and had the greatest impact is a Congregational minister named George MacDonald.   C. S. Lewis once said that George MacDonald “baptized [his] imagination.” I give no guarantee that these books will do the same, but they live in my heart, mind and soul. Most are fantasy and SF, so if this genre isn’t for you, give a few a try. You might find yourself being drawn in after all. Great SF and fantasy starts with great stories. Baptizing the Imagination In Surprised by Joy, C.S. Lewis describes his chance encounter with a book he found in a book stall in a train station that played an important role in his conversion to Christianity. Its title was  Phantaste s and its author, George MacDonald.   The imagination, like the soul of which it is a part, must be baptized. It must die to itself so that it may be resurrected in Christ. It is this baptized imagination which has brought forth the cornucopia of Great Books which are the beautiful blossoms on the tree of Christendom.
