Dr. Michael Ward, author of Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis and co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis, was the instructor for this semester's ACU class focused on the life and works of C.S. Lewis. He was also the lead organizer of the C.S. Lewis Memorial event at Westminster Abbey. Ward invited ACU students to attend the unveiling on November 22.
The memorial stone is set in the floor of the Poets’ Corner, where many other distinguished authors also have memorials. It reads: “I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen: not only because I can see it but because by it I can see everything else.”
The ACU students were among 1,000 guests from around the world who attended the event.
