‘Co-Inherence’, is the lightly moderated e-list for discussion and application of the works and ideas of Charles Williams. Charles Williams (1886-1945) was a writer of books, plays, and poetry; he was a Christian, as well as a friend and Oxford collegue of C.S.Lewis and J.R.R.Tolkien. His novels and poetry were respected by such diverse people as T.S.Eliot, Lewis, and W.H.Auden. His most popular works are still his novels, termed ‘spiritual thrillers’ by Eliot, in which theological themes and metaphysical realms are treated with the appearance of extreme realism! Williams is the godfather of much of the ‘spiritual warfare’ literature currently in vogue, and his literary work stands as a bridge between the mystical or occult interests, and orthodox affirmations and communities, of his various readers. We have brought up this e-list in the hope of building an informed readership for Williams’ work, and exploring the application of his philosopical and theological ideas in Christian practice.  This e-list is open to all, but lurking and trolling are frowned upon; ‘bearing one another’s burdens’, and open, intelligent debate and discussion are strongly encouraged!
