(Re-Post) Both Sides of the Wardrobe (Rob Fennell)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: Both Sides of the Wardrobe is a book edited by Rob Fennell. This episode is from March 2016. 


Both_Sides_of_the_Wardrobe.jpgThe Narnia stories are easily the most popular writings from C.S. Lewis. He did, of course, release many other works that are also enjoyed. To help others enjoy and/or learn about the variety of books from Lewis Rob Fennell had a conference in Canada in 2013 with various speakers to address "Both Sides of the Wardrobe." This resulted in a book that was released in late 2015 called Both Sides of the Wardrobe. William O'Flaherty recently spoke with him about this title for the All About Jack podcast. Most of the authors will be new to listeners, but Brenton Dickieson,  one of them, has been on the show many times.

Lewis" you'll be reminded about some of the ways the devils try to twist humility to make it a weapon for their gain.

(Re-Post) - America Discovers C.S. Lewis (Dr. K. Alan Snyder)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The last new interview I did; about the book America Discovers C.S. Lewis by Dr. Alan Snyder.

America_Discovers_CSL.jpgIf you live in the United States, then you are probably not too surprised to know that a lot of people here know about C.S. Lewis. Did you know it was first an American who helped to tell the world about him? That's just a small part of what you'll find in a book called America Discovers C.S. Lewis by history professor, Dr. Alan Snyder. Alan also explores the contrast between a young C.S. Lewis who had negative views about the U.S. and a more mature Lewis who married an American, along with telling about a variety of individuals who have been profoundly impacted by his life and writings.

(Re-Post) 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know (Terry Glaspey)

00:0000:00

In this repeat: From earlier last year, a chat with Terry Glaspey about 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know. 




75MasterpiecesTerry.jpg

Christians have been involved in making great Art (in the general sense of that word) for many centuries. While not all who were Believers lived a perfect life, what they created has been acknowledged to be great works, or "masterpieces." William O'Flaherty spoke with Terry Glaspey about this topic which is explored in his book 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know. Of course, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien are among them.

It is an independent, non-profit, Christian, educational and cultural organization interested in events, publications, and other developments that advance deeper understanding of the enduring philosophical, cultural, historical, literary, spiritual, social, and economic issues of mankind.

(Re-Post) Battlefield of the Mind: Examining Screwtape’s Preferred Method (William O’Flaherty)

00:0000:00

In this repeat: Here's the talk I did at Taylor elaborating on a few more of Screwtape's "preferred method."




Battle_of_the_Mind_William_Taylor_2016_.I just gave the following short talk on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at the Taylor University Colloquium. My brief presentation was part of a variety of academic papers that was presented  there. In it I explore the 13th through the 17th letters from The Screwtape Letters to reveal where an often overlooked "preferred method" of the devils is suggested. Previously I spoke on the initial twelve letters (see link below) when I gave a keynote address at the Inklings Fellowship Weekend Retreat at Montreat College. The material from both is adapted and an expansion of material from my first book, C.S. Lewis Goes to Hell: A Companion and Study Guide to The Screwtape Letters. While I do give a summary of the unique aspects of my book, the main focus of the talk is about the devils' "preferred method" to keep us from living up to God's potential. Visit my website to contact me about giving this talk or a three or four part presentation on all of the places this method is mentioned or alluded to.

(Re-Post) 200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis - Episode 1

00:0000:00

In this repeat: The debut episode of my new short-term podcast series focusing on The Screwtape Letters.

                                          200_Seconds_Ep_1.jpg

Welcome to the premier episode of the podcast "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis." It focuses on highlighting the classic book The Screwtape Letters. The first show, however, serves more as an introduction to the type of information that will normally be covered. Being a podcast you need to click the link above to hear it. For the moment I'm including it on my All About Jack podcast feed, so you can follow it either on my Podbean page or via my iTunes feeds (see links below).

This series will be short-term. That is, while I'm not sure how many episodes will be done, it won't go on forever.

2017 is the 75th anniversary of when The Screwtape Letters was first published. So, why not read it again!

(Re-Post) 2016 Podcast Recap

00:0000:00

In this repeat: My recent 2016 recap.




2016_Podcast_Recap.jpgDuring 2016 I shared a variety of shows on my All About Jack podcast. While less than thirty were brand new, close to fifteen I shared had not been available previously at the location where I now have my audio files hosted. Below you'll find a list of the programs that weren't tied to just 2016 (that is, events held during that year). In the past two years I did a two-part show that shared brief excerpts from nearly all of the totally new show, but frankly I just didn't have the time to do that. So, be sure to look over the list to discover podcasts you might have missed or want to hear again. Additionally, in 2016 I began to post in my iTunes and Podbean feed older shows, or reminders of programs from the current year. What you'll hear in this podcast is a couple of highlights from three shows that showcase the variety of programs I had.

(Re-Post) Shining Light on Screwtape’s Darkest Secret (William O’Flaherty)

00:0000:00

In this repeat: Here is a talk I gave in early April, 2016 about a running theme in The Screwtape Letters.




Screwtape_s_Darkest_Secret.jpg

I just gave the following talk on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the Inklings Fellowship Weekend Retreat that was held in Montreat, NC at Montreat College. It was also the public debut of my first book C.S. Lewis Goes to Hell: A Companion and Study Guide to The Screwtape Letters. While I do give a summary of the unique aspects of my book, the main focus of the talk is about the devils' secret weapon that is mentioned in nearly all of the letters. My book just list them, but this presentation provides more details and gives a practical application to one's life. Visit my website to contact me about giving this talk or a three or four part presentation on all of the places this weapon is mentioned or alluded to.
