C.S. LEWIS SUMMER INSTITUTE'S
BIBLIOGRAPHY FOR
TIME AND ETERNITY

In preparation for a summer institute in 2002 with the theme of "Time and Eternity," the Institute issued a bibliography and encouraged particpants to "review the list and pick just a couple of books you have not read (or would like to re-read) that would pique your interest and get your spirit and intellect 'primed' for our time together." The list is provocative and even though some of the "Miscellaneous" titles seem far afield the list is well worth careful consideration.
