Abstract:

Lewis' career in the US Foreign Service spanned twenty-nine years and including tours of duty in Vietnam, Pakistan, the DRCongo, and Korea. In examining the links he discovered between Foreign Service and theology, he discovered how God can bring good out of human tragedy. Lewis ends by drawing together the implications of these links for natural theology, which deals with how theology ought to relate to the world-- and thus is of prime importance for both theology and the world.
