(Re-Post) 200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis Episode 4

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The latest episode of my short-term series that encourages you to read The Screwtape Letters.

200_Seconds_Ep_4.jpg
Do words matter? Of course they do! That's why Screwtape tells Wormwood to either suggest more negative sounding terms or expressions that people associate with things they don't like. Words like "complacency," "unselfishness" and "Puritanical" are help for Hell's purposes. In this four episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" you'll be reminded about some of the ways the devils try to twist words to make it a weapon for their gain.

2017 is the 75th anniversary of when The Screwtape Letters was first published. So, why not read it again! And consider getting my enhanced study guide to help you enjoy it even more. Get a free 20 page PDF sample of my book via ScrewtapeCompanion.com.

(Re-Post) 17r Essay Chat - Horrid Red Things (Dr. Charlie Starr)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: Here's an essay chat with Dr. Charlie Starr about HORRID RED THINGS.




EC17r_-_Horrid_Red_Things.jpgAfter beginning an occasional series examining a single essay from Lewis in 2012 and doing more than a dozen that year, I ended up doing a lot fewer since that time. The following discussion with Dr. Charlie Starr was first released in April, 2013. It’s on the essay “Horrid Red Things.” The hope is that by listening to this essay chat you will want to read or re-read it. “Horrid Red Things” can be most easily found in a collection called God in the Dock. Charlie has been on several other shows since this essay chat. Be sure to check the links below to hear the other programs.

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: Last year marked the 75th anniversary of the first letter from Screwtape; this year is the 75th anniversary of the book coming out.

What follows are short reflections from a variety of individuals about the landmark material that was Lewis' first claim to fame. Comments are from Dr. Bruce Edwards, Dr. Jerry Root, Brenton Dickieson, Andrew Lazo, Christin Ditchfield, Rev. Dr. Bruce R. Johnson, Mark Wallace Maguire, Dr. Don King, Dr. Crystal Hurd and Sandy Smith. Follow the links below to learn more about them.

(Re-Post) C. S. Lewis and the Art of Writing (Dr. Corey Latta)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The last new episode about a book from Dr. Corey Latta entitled C.S. Lewis and the Art of Writing

CSL_and_the_Art_of_Writing.jpgYou obviously know that C.S. Lewis was a writer, but did you know that he wrote a good deal of advice on writing? That's the focus of this podcast interview about a book called C.S. Lewis and the Art of Writing. The author is Dr. Corey Latta and in this book he's broken that advice down into fifty bit-size chapters that also gives some optional exercises to help you put that advice into practice. The book has a biographical tone to it, so even if you are not a writer you can still enjoy it. Plus, some of the tips on writing can be applied to other creative endeavors.

(Re-Post) 16r Essay Chat - Willing Slaves of the Welfare State (Dr. Crystal Hurd)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAST: Another essay chat - this on "Willings Slaves of the Welfare State" with Dr. Crystal Hurd.




EC16r_-_Willing_Slaves.jpg

Back in April 2012 I began an occasional series of essay chats. Each of these podcasts examine a single shorter work that C.S. Lewis wrote with the hopes of encourage you to read or re-read it. As "Willing Slaves of the Welfare State" is repeated with this show, I find it hard to believe that I actually did sixteen over a seven month span. Of course, back then my program wasn't very old and this was a fairly easy way to create a new podcast. My guest for this essay chat is a familiar name; Dr. Crystal Hurd has been on the show many times. Crystal is an educator and researcher from Virginia who is currently researching the role of artists as leaders. The essay discussed can most easily be found in God in the Dock.
