Powerful, thought-provoking discussion by Dallas Willard on what CS Lewis discussed in book 4 of Mere Christianity. This was made in 2003, during the 40th anniversary of CS Lewis' death.
The following summary is from the UC SD website. There is a link to the video at the end of this summary.
Dallas Willard, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern California, addresses "Beyond Personality," dealing with the last book of Mere Christianityby C. S. Lewis. Willard begins his talk by showing us that the public's interest today in heroes-whether in movies, sports, politics-is about "transcending," that is, about getting beyond personalities. The hunger for transcendence, the desire to escape, entices everyone to try to get "beyond personality," to find what is real. Mere Christianity sets us on this path of discovery.
