Last week my wife and I took a trip into New York City to see award-winning actor Max McLean‘s acclaimed portrayal of author C.S. Lewis. The play is called The Most Reluctant Convert and it is truly brilliant. Everything from the set decorations to the acting shouted out artistic perfection.
One aspect of Lewis’s life covered was his sense of longing for something almost intangible, something seemingly just over the horizon. A sense that somewhere there is something better than the life in which we all seem to be locked.
For C.S. Lewis this longing was fulfilled in Christianity.
The play chronicles C.S. Lewis’s journey from determined atheist to Christian. Max McLean is ever faithful to Lewis’s voice. He is witty, thoughtful and intellectually graceful. I absolutely recommend this play to anyone who can manage to see it. Here’s a brief look:
For many, becoming a Christian is a journey. And I’m no different, really. But how each of us sees the world around us after we choose Christianity is an amazing testament.
I am a total media geek and I have no problem confessing that fact.
