C.S. Lewis on Theosis

The video below contains a fascinating 42-minute-long lecture from Myk Habets (pictured at right). Myk teaches in the Carey Graduate School at Carey Baptist College in New Zealand. His lecture is titled, "You Have Never Met a Mere Mortal (what evangelicals can learn from C.S. Lewis's vision of salvation)." Its focus is Lewis' emphasis, following Athanasius and other church fathers, on the sometimes misunderstood (and often overlooked) doctrine of Theosis, which views salvation as human participation in the divine life of the Trinity. Enjoy (and rejoice!).



  1. Thanks for posting Myk's lecture, Ted - wonderful and uplifting! (though, you have to listen closely to pierce his accent, ha!)
