Experience "The Battle for Britain's Soul," an educational study tour in England, which focuses on the university cities of Oxford and Cambridge where C. S. Lewis taught. London, with its rich heritage, will serve as the home base for the course.

Blending history, apologetics and biblical theology, the course is designed to touch both minds and hearts.  Our desire is to inspire a vision of what God can do once again, as we face today's enormous challenges.

 Course Description

This course will focus on the explanation and defense of Christianity's core message of good news--the Gospel of Christ--in Great Britain.

Three principal questions will be addressed:


Biblically and theologically, how are we to understand the "Gospel"?


How did the Gospel come to a new clarity in the work of the great British theologians from 1400 onward?


What role did C. S. Lewis play in the defense of the Gospel in an era of secularization?



Included: All lodging, full breakfasts, all scheduled entrance fees, all ground transportation in the UK, and the 3 credit-hour course taken for either credit or audit.

Not included: Lunch and dinner (about $30. per day) and airline travel.

Cost: $1775.

*Optional Four Day Ministry Extension*  

At the conclusion of the July 2015 C.S. Lewis Honors Seminar, there will be an "extra" opportunity for ministry from July 26th to July 30th.  It is designed for students who want to add on extra mission outreach days at the end of the course! The ministry outreach is coordinated in London by the historic London City Mission and the Christian Heritage of London. In churches, we will use drama, testimonies, and outreach talks with high-tech visuals. We will also engage in neighborhood and open-air city ministries.  On the last day you will be treated to a visit to ancient Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral! 


This ministry extension will be led by Dr. and Mrs. Tom Woodward, and staff from the Christian Heritage of London. The cost is $400.00 for those additional ministry days, plus the cost of lunches and dinners. We encourage those who choose this UK ministry-extension to share this opportunity with their church or individual support network.


Application for this ministry extension is done at the same time when applying for the study tour atwww.trinitycollegestudytour.com. Space is limited for the extended ministry days, so don't hesitate to sign up soon.
