Andrew Lazo holds an M.A. in English from Rice University where he was Jacob K. Javits Fellow in the Humanities. He holds a B.A. (with Honors) in English with minors in Latin and Medieval Studies and a Post-baccalaureate in Classics from the University of California, Davis.
Andrew currently teaches English and C. S. Lewis at Houston Christian High School in Houston. Andrew has published several articles and book reviews on C. S. Lewis and other Inklings and has co-edited Mere Christians: Inspiring Stories of Encounters with C. S. Lewis (Baker Books, 2009). His latest article, published in VII, has definitively corrected the accepted dating of Lewis’s conversion to Theism.
As a well-known speaker on C. S. Lewis and the Inklings, Andrew’s resume includes, among many others, weekend conferences at Laity Lodge, St. Mark’s Episcopal (Jacksonville, FL) and St. Michael’s by-the-Sea (Carlsbad, CA) and a regular summer series at Christ United Methodist Church (Sugar Land, TX). An invitation by Bishop Andy Doyle brought Andrew to speak to the clergy of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and he has offered a number of popular courses and lectures at The Jung Center of Houston.
In his work for the C.S. Lewis Foundation, Andrew regularly travels around the country to speak and has taught Lewis in both Oxford and Cambridge.
Andrew frequently gives talks to churches, retreats, schools, and groups of all sizes and ages, passionately and humorously presenting his insights on the Scriptures and on C. S. Lewis’s joyful, humble, and wise help in living out faith. He has a number of set presentations on many aspects of the life and work of C. S. Lewis; moreover, he delights to tailor his talks to the needs of individual groups. For more information, please contact Andrew here.
