(Re-Post) The Narnia Code Series 04 (Shows 8-10)

00:0000:00

In this repeat: More from the series on The Narnia Code. Part four of five.




NarniaCode048-10.jpg
This is the fourth episode of five in the re-packaged series on The Narnia Code. It combines what was previously the eighth, ninth and tenth episodes. Back in 2012 I had the privilege to interview Dr. Michael Ward for a series of thirteen episodes to discuss his book The Narnia Code. With me to help co-host the show was Dr. Holly Ordway. Due to the series being in so many parts I was reluctant to re-post it, but because this year is not only the 65th anniversary of the publication of the first Narnia story, but also the 10th anniversary of the first Hollywood version of the Narnia movies I felt it was the perfect time to do so. As noted, I decided to combine three shows for this posting and it covers the eighth, ninth and tenth chapters from The Narnia Code; they deal with The Horse and His Boy, The Magician's Nephew and The Last Battle and reveal the specific "code" that Dr. Ward discovered for each book. If you haven't listened to the previous episodes then be sure to follow the links below to give them a listen.

(Re-Post) Highlights Inklings Week in Oxford 2016

00:0000:00

In this repeat: My last new podcast...featuring excerpts from various talks from the Inklings Week in Oxford.




Highlights_Inklings_OXFORD_2016.jpg
Most of you are aware that last month (July, 2016) there was an event in England called "An Inklings Week in Oxford." It was hosted by the Inklings Fellowship. There were 10 plenary talks (one hour), five "second breakfast" speakers (thirty minutes) and also each morning during morning worship there was someone sharing to help put the day in focus. Obviously it would be too large of a task to highlight all of that, so what follows is a podcast that shares short excerpts from talks most related to Lewis or his works. As noted in the introduction the purpose of this show is to remind those who attend what it was like and to let others know what they missed so they will consider attending the next one in 2019! All talks shared today were given at St. Giles Church in Oxford.

(Re-Post) The Narnia Code Series 01 (Shows 1-3)

00:0000:00

In this repeat: Revisiting the re-release of my Narnia Code series with Dr. Michael Ward; episodes 1-3 in one podcast.




NarniaCode011-3.jpgBack in 2012 I had the privilege to interview Dr. Michael Ward for a series of thirteen episodes to discuss his book The Narnia Code. With me to help co-host the show was Dr. Holly Ordway. Due to the length of the series I had hesitated to re-release it even though I change my podcast hosting location. However, because it is the 65th anniversary of the publication of the first Narnia story I felt it was a good time; especial when I decided to combine several episodes to make it into a five-part series. What follows is the first three programs where the initial three chapters from the book are explored to set the stage for Dr Ward's discovery.

(Re-Post) Honoring the Legacy of Dr. Bruce Edwards

00:0000:00

In this repeat: Here' s special podcast featuring several friends reflecting on the life of Dr. Bruce Edwards.




BrucewaswithWilliam.jpg
As this is posted most of you who are familiar with Dr. Bruce Edwards know he died unexpected on October 28, 2015. I learned of the news while attend the C.S. Lewis Foundation's Fall Retreat at Camp Allen. Many attending were close friends (professionally and personally) and so I records some brief thoughts with them. Then I caught up with a couple other people I knew were well acquainted with him to have them share some reflections as well. I'm sure I missed several who knew Bruce and had been on my show previously. Speaking of being on All About Jack, Bruce was a frequent guest and even this year he had been on a couple of two-part episodes (they are listed below).  In additional to the link for this podcast, be sure to listen to the memorial service and the final podcast that Bruce did from his own online show.

(Re-Post) COMPLETE Walter Hooper Interview 2016

00:0000:00

In this repeat: My last new show; an interview with Walter Hooper.




Walter_Hooper_COMPLETEjpg.jpg

The following is the complete interview (nearly 60 minutes) with Walter Hooper. It was recording in his home on July 20, 2016. As you likely know, Walter has been the central figure since the death of C.S. Lewis in making sure Lewis' writing that were published in his life were reprinted and also Hooper has edited the majority of material from Lewis that was previously unpublished. His C.S. Lewis - A Companion and Guide gives the best single volume summary of the works of Lewis and key facts about his life.
