"MERE CHRISTIANS, THEN & NOW"

How do the Inklings define "mere Christianity"? What essential doctrines
do they share in their Christian community? How do they express these
ideas through imaginative literature, philosophy, and theology? How is
"mere Christianity" applicable to contemporary Christianity?

Thematic papers on the essence of Christianity as developed in the
apologetic, theological, and/or literary works of C.S. Lewis and/or the
Inklings are especially welcome. To be eligible for conference acceptance,
complete papers or 250-word abstracts are due by March 8, 2004 (we have
extended our deadline).
