(Re-Post) The Myth of Love Lecture Series (Andrew Lazo)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: My last new interview...with Andrew Lazo about his project on TILL WE HAVE FACES.

Myth_of_Love_POSTER_Andrew_Lazo_.jpgEven those who enjoy the wide variety of books by C.S. Lewis are sometimes confused when they get to his last published novel, Till We Have Faces. What was he trying to do with the retelling of the story of Cupid and Psyche? How could he completely turn from writing material for Christians to release such a strange tale? Why did consider it his best book? Inklings scholar Andrew Lazo has been studying Till We Have Faces for many years and believes he can help both those who enjoy the book and those who are puzzled by it. This podcast interview details a new lecture series for late 2017 and early 2018 that will be a book in the near future. Learn a few of the insights Lazo has made and how he might be coming to a city near you to speak on the topic.

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

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The forth 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.

200_Seconds_Ep_3.jpg

At least that's what Wormwood is partly told he should try to make happen with his patient in The Screwtape Letters. In this third episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. 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) Between Heaven & Hell - The Film (Jim Buchholz)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The fundraiser is from last year, but it didn't get funded and a NEW fundraiser was started. Visit Visit the Main Website for Between Heaven and Hell to pledge.

 



Between_HandH.jpgIs death the end of life? What if three people who died on the same day had a chance to discuss this? As you might know, on November 22, 1963 John F. Kennedy, C.S. Lewis and Aldous Huxley died. The book Between Heaven and Hell provides an imaginary conversation between the three who viewed life very differently. So, what would they talk about? Jim Buchholz wants to take this fascinating approach and make a big screen movie out of it. He has secured the rights to the book, has a screenplay and crew all ready and now needs some funding to move it forward. How will the movie be different from the book in a good way? Why does Jim believe he has the experience to make it? These and other questions are answered in the interview.
