(Re-Post) Narnia Books Miniseries 01 LWW

IN THIS REPEAT: A special podcast devoted to the book version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe




NarniaCastLWW.jpg
Back in 2013 I did a miniseries on The Chronicles of Narnia. For it there was one show for each of the seven books and a different special guest. Co-hosting with me for nearly all of the shows were Paul Martin from NarniaFans.com and Dr. Crystal Hurd.  Dr. Bruce Edwards discusses The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in this premiere episode. Feel free to leave questions or comments below. Next week Dr. Devin Brown will tackle Prince Caspian.
 
Each show is basically divided into the following segments:
 
The Story Behind the Story
Short Summary of the Book
Favorite Characters Discussion
Unique Aspects of this Story
General Discussion (a variety of questions related to the book)

(Re-Post) Becoming C. S. Lewis (Dr. Hal Poe)

Becoming_CS_Lewis.jpg

IN THIS REPEAT - Dr. Hal Poe shares about his bio on the early life of C.S. Lewis in Becoming C.S. Lewis. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How well do you know C.S. Lewis? You probably don't know Jack as well as you think, until you know his early life. Or more accurately, nearly all of Lewis' interests and tastes were formed in his first twenty years. That is the new book by Dr. Harry Lee (Hal) Poe, entitled Becoming C.S. Lewis examines these early years and shows how his youth influenced his later life and writings. This podcast interview features Dr. Poe explaining how he came to write this book (the first of three) and why knowing Jack Lewis (his friends called him "Jack") is best understood by exploring his formative years.

Wade Center came together to release a small, but meaningful booklet entitled The Grand Miracle: Daily Reflections for the Season of Advent. It contains 28 devotions written by as many authors that contain a Scripture quotation, as well as a quotation from either C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dorthy L. Sayers, George MacDonald, G.K. Chesterton, Charles Williams, Owen Barfield, or Joy Davidman.

IN THIS REPEAT: An interview from 2015 about a book by various authors focusing on Lewis' relationship with women.




WomenandCSLewis.jpg
Does C.S. Lewis's life and his writings have anything to say to our world today, especially in relation to females? That's the very issue Women and C.S. Lewis aims to tackle. It does so by gathering together a variety of scholars and thinkers (both men and women) who are very familiar with Lewis to, as its subtitle says, find "what his life and literature reveal for today's culture." William O'Flaherty spoke with Carolyn Curtis, one of the co-editors of the book about this new release for 2015. Contributors include many who have been guests before on the podcast: Dr. Devin Brown, Colin Duriez, Dr. David Downing, Andrew Lazo, Dr. Crystal Hurd, Paul McCusker, Dr. Holly Ordway, Dr. Michael Ward, Dr. Alister McGrath, Dr. Don King and Revd Dr. Malcolm Guite.
