Think Seven

The 28th volume of Seven is now available. It’s a journal that is annually published by the Wade Center at Wheaton College. It get its name from the seven authors the Center ties together. Many know them as the Inklings. In 1965, Clyde Kilby fashioned the group and began collecting writings and forming relationships with key contacts. The seven: Owen Barfield, G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, Dorothy Sayers, J.R.R. Tolkien and Charles Williams.

If you haven’t been to the Wade, you should. It’s part museum with Lewis wardrobe, Tolkien’s desk, and other relics and mostly study center with original letters and a library of Inkling books. Since 1980, Seven has published scholarly articles and book reviews.

A rundown of number 28: Lewis’s “Easley Fragment,” Chesterton on MacDonald, Sayers and the creative reader, Tolkien’s beautiful sorrow and the Somersham Pageant and Sayers. There are a good number of books reviewed too, but we’ll keep you in suspense.
