C.S. Lewis dedicated Surprised by Joy “To Dom Bede Griffiths, O.S. B.”

Lewis, in the final chapter of Surprised by Joy,called Griffiths “my chief companion…..with whom I kept up a copious correspondence”. Griffiths was, probably, the most important Christian contemplative theologian of the 20th century who engaged in Christian-Hindu dialogue. This lecture will reflect on the layered friendship between Lewis and Griffiths. 

Ron Dart has taught in the political science, philosophy, religious studies department at University of the Fraser Valley since 1990. Ron has published more than 30 books, and is on the national executive of the Thomas Merton Society of Canada. Ron corresponded with Bede Griffiths.
