00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The debut episode of my new short-term podcast series focusing on The Screwtape Letters. Includes links to the next three other shows.

                                          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) Exploring C.S. Lewis Misquotes and Misconceptions - Episode 1

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The debut episode of the series Explorling Lewis Misquotes and Misconceptions.

Podcast_EXPLORING_-_1a.jpg

If you have been on social media over the last few years then you have probably seen a quotation attributed to Lewis from someone that you wondered if he actually wrote. That happen to me time and time again; so much that I began to collect them as I researched whether or not Lewis wrote the quote in question. That led to a blog series examining each quotation (see link below). More recently I began collecting information related to the life of Lewis and his writings that are misunderstood and started a blog series on this (link also below). This led me to considering what you now see, the first of a six-part episode chatting about these topics. This initial show provides an overview of all the subjects address in the other programs. Guest host for today is Dr. Crystal Hurd.

Dymer was first published in 1926, prior to Lewis becoming a Christian and was later reprinted in 1950.
