(Re-post) WRL02 - Dymer

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT; From my series about why you should read Lewis; this one about his poem Dymer.

Dymer_3_Covers_.jpgThis podcast focuses on one of the lesser known works by C.S. Lewis; a long narrative poem entitled Dymer. This show is part of an occasional series indirectly begun in 2016 and officially kicked-off this year, 2017. The series is called "Why Read Lewis," and the aim is to encourage you to read or re-read works written by Lewis. Today's program features just three individuals reflecting and/or summarizing Dymer. They are Dr. Jerry Root, Dr. Crystal Hurd and Dr. Don King.
Dymer was first published in 1926, prior to Lewis becoming a Christian and was later reprinted in 1950.

C.S. Lewis's first Christian book has been a difficult read for most individuals, however a newly released edition makes it easier to understand. Dr. David Downing is the editor of The Pilgrim's Regress: Wade Annotated Edition. William O'Flaherty spoke with Dr. Downing recently about how he became involved in the project, along with what types of helps he provides in this version of the 1933 volume. Previously Dr. Downing has been on the show to discuss his books The Most Reluctant Convert and Looking for the King (see below for links).

(Re-Post) The Faun’s Bookshelf (Dr. Charlie Starr)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: An interview about The Faun's Bookself by Dr. Charlie Starr.A book that released this year (2018).



Faun_s_Bookshelf.jpgThe Faun's Bookshelf is an interesting title that explores, as part of the subtitle reveals, "Why Myth Matters." Dr. Charlie Starr, the author, uses books C.S. Lewis mentions on Mr. Tumnus's bookshelf as the framework to examine what myth means and how it teaches us about reality. This interviewed was recorded on the campus of Taylor University the day before the 11th Frances W. Ewbank Colloquium, where he gave one of the keynote talks. Even though Charlie goes into a lot of deal about his book in this interview, you will learn even more about myth by purchasing his book (direct link given below). Speak thanks to Dr. Crystal Hurd who voiced the endorsement given at the start and also an except from Charlie's book.

Surprised by Agape (Justin Wiggins)

00:0000:00

Surprised_By_Agape.jpgThis is not a typical edition of the All About Jack podcast. Most of my shows are interviews with authors about a book completely focused on C.S. Lewis or one of his friends. This program features an interview with Justin Wiggins about his autobiographical book entitled Surprised by Agape. As you will hear in the interview (and notice from the book cover), C.S. Lewis had a profound impact on his life. This brief work also shares how George MacDonald and the music of Switchfoot also played a role in his life; which included struggles that Justin had with unbelief and suicidal thoughts.
