Sermons About or Influenced by C.S. Lewis

Each of the following sermons has been preached during my ministry at the First Christian Church in Burkesville, Kentucky. "Footprints of an Old Friend" was specifically written in response to and in memory of the wonderful week that I spent at a continuing education conference, entitled "Learning From C.S. Lewis." that was led by Perry Bramlett, at Laity Lodge in Kerrville, Texas on July 12-19, 1999. In this sermon I reflect briefly on Lewis's life and share several short quotations from his writings. The other messages were part of my regular preaching ministry to my congregation in Burkesville. May each one draw you closer to the awesome, but personal God that we may each come to know in Jesus Christ. Please contact me if you have any suggestions or questions.
