Lincoln Christian University is pleased to announce that the 2019 Strauss Lectureship will be presented by Dr. Devin Brown. Devin Brown is a Lilly Scholar and Professor of English at Asbury University where he teaches a class on C. S. Lewis. He has a PhD. from the University of South Carolina and an MA from the University of Florida. Dr. Brown has published 12 books, including the most recent biographies of Tolkien and Lewis. In addition to his own books, he was among the contributors to The C. S. Lewis Bible and The Annotated Screwtape Letters. He has written the scripts for four documentaries, the most recent was Zondervan’s Discussing Mere Christianity filmed on location in Oxford with Eric Metaxas as host. He is a frequent keynote speaker at conferences.
As an undergraduate, he spent his sophomore year at LCC (as it was known at the time) and fondly remembers taking classes from Professor Strauss and being greatly impacted. In Summer 2008, Dr. Brown was invited to teach a week-long class at The Kilns, Lewis’s home in Oxford, where he got to sleep in Lewis’s bedroom. He and his wife, Sharon, live in Lexington, Kentucky with their 15-pound cat, Mr. Fluff.
