“Letters to Children” w/ Marjorie Mead

Long before the internet was invented people wrote letters to C.S. Lewis and he wrote back, sending them meaningful, insightful, and compassionate letters. In this week’s episode Drs. Crystal and David C. Downing sit down with Marjorie Mead, Co-Director of the Wade Center, to discuss a book of Letters to Children (1985). Marjorie reveals how the book was conceived, how some of the letters were found, and how Lewis’s letters to children can still minister to us today–especially if we’ve grown up too much like Peter and Susan in The Chronicles of Narnia.
