Deeper Magic (Dr. Donald T. Williams)


Deeper_Magic.jpgWhile C.S. Lewis is known for being outspoken about his Christian faith, it's difficult to find specifics about what he believed in some aspects of Theology. This is not unusual because he wasn't a Theologian, even though he did manage to help many understand various theological issues. Fortunately, a new book by Dr. Donald T. Williams, entitled Deeper Magic: The Theology Behind the Writings of C.S. Lewis tackles the topic. This podcast interview provides an overview of his book that not only summarizes Lewis' views but also gives an analysis of them. Dr. Williams has previously been on All About Jack with a couple of podcasts featuring two different talks that related to the subject.



(Re-Post) C.S. Lewis as Theologian (Dr. Don Williams)


IN THIS REPEAT: I'm posting a new interview with Dr. Don Williams soon about a book that he briefly spoke about a couple years ago. Here's that talk:



The focus of this podcast is a talk that Dr. Donald Williams gave recently that was a paper presented at Taylor University earlier this year (2014) as part of the 9th Frances White Ewbank Colloquium on C.S. Lewis & Friends. Dr. Williams explores the challenges faced when consider Lewis as a theologian. The material is the ground work for a book he is working and in it he share why such an examination is needed. 


(Re-Post) 11-12r Essay Chat - The Vision of John Bunyan (Kevin Belmonte)


IN THIS REPEAT: An essay chat on the shorter work "The Vision of John Bunyan." The essay was first published on December 13, 1962.

TheVisionofJohnBunyan.jpg"The Vision of John Bunyan" was the topic for my 11th and 12th essay chat back in 2012. For this re-release I combined the shows because together they are just over twenty minutes. Kevin Belmonte, who joined me for the third essay chat (and other shows) returned for this discussion. As always, in addition to exploring several key points in the article, you will learn background information about it, as well as related articles or books on a similar topic. "The Vision of John Bunyan" is best found in Selected Literary Essays (a title that was re-issued in paperback and made available in eBook for the first time in late 2013).



(Re-Post) Apologetics and the Christian Imagination (Dr. Holly Ordway)


IN THIS REPEAT: My last new show was with Dr. Holly Ordway about new new apologetics book. 

Apologetics_and_the_Christian_Imagination.jpgNew for 2017 is a book by Dr. Holly Ordway entitled Apologetics and the Christian Imagination: An Integrated Approach to Defending the Faith. This podcast interview gives an overview of Holly’s belief that both reason and imagination should be used for the most effective defense of the Christian faith. She has previously been on All About Jack for a couple of “Essay Chat” podcasts and co-hosted a series dealing with The Narnia Code, and talking about her spiritual autobiography Not God’s Type.




(Re-Post) EC10r - Meditation in a Toolshed (Dr. Bruce Edwards)


IN THIS REPEAT: Here's another essay chat I did a few years ago. 


"Meditation in a Toolshed" was the tenth essay chat William O'Flaherty did back in 2012. Dr. Bruce Edwards, Professor Emeritus of English and Africana Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, is the guest for this discussion.  "Meditation in a Toolshed" is a fairly short essay that is a favorite among Lewis scholars. It is best found in God in the Dock essay collection. Learn about the background to this shorter work from Lewis and a few of the key points made in it that will either introduce to this great piece or remind you about it.
