C. S. Lewis and the Art of Writing (Dr. Corey Latta)

00:0000:00

CSL_and_the_Art_of_Writing.jpgYou obviously know that C.S. Lewis was a writer, but did you know that he wrote a good deal of advice on writing? That's the focus of this podcast interview about a book called C.S. Lewis and the Art of Writing. The author is Dr. Corey Latta and in this book he's broken that advice down into fifty bit-size chapters that also gives some optional exercises to help you put that advice into practice. The book has a biographical tone to it, so even if you are not a writer you can still enjoy it. Plus, some of the tips on writing can be applied to other creative endeavors.

(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.

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.
