My favorite Modern Scholar presenter! Love his down home Mid Western voice paired with his unassuming scholarship. Gave me a wider understanding of one of my favorite authors and thinkers.

This the lecture series that helped me to understand the apologetic works of C. S. Lewis and enriched my enjoyment of the fiction.
