Wednesday Night Recap


Tonight we discuss chapter fourteen of  ‘Surprised by joy’ — ‘Checkmate’

I appreciate dad filling in for me last Wednesday night. I know you had a great discussion.

Tonight we will focus on what is the most significant chapter of  ‘Surprised by Joy.’ Lewis walks us through his conversion experience. The following questions will form the basis of our discussion:

1) Lewis writes “The odd thing was that before God closed in on me, I was in fact offered what now appears a moment of wholly free choice…The choice appeared to be momentous but it was also strangely unemotional.” p 224. How does Lewis experience compare with your conversion experience?

2) Lewis writes “Really, a young Atheist cannot guard his faith too carefully. Dangers lie in wait for him on every side.” p 226. What dangers?

3) Lewis concludes that in the end God demands all. Lewis found this frightening. Why? p 227-228

See you tonight.
