Course Introduction

With C. S. Lewis, whose own acceptance of Christ hinged on his understanding that Christ is the myth become fact, this course will seek to mine wisdom of eternal value from the great storehouses of Greco-Roman mythology and trace the links that bind those myths to the Bible and to the Christian life. Please also see the book The Myth Made Fact: Reading Greek and Roman Mythology through Christian Eyes.
