Would We Have Been Friends? Keller and Piper on Lewis

C.S. Lewis tended to be generous, maybe even too generous.

Lewis’s influence is profound in the lives of Tim Keller and John Piper, but they both wonder whether they would be friends with him if he were still alive. Would Lewis’s imposing logic have made it difficult? Perhaps Lewis was too welcoming to figures outside the bounds of orthodoxy?

In the latest five-minute video, Keller and Piper ponder these points together.
