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.

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: A talk I gave in early April, 2016 about a running theme in The Screwtape Letters.




Screwtape_s_Darkest_Secret.jpg

I just gave the following talk on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the Inklings Fellowship Weekend Retreat that was held in Montreat, NC at Montreat College. It was also the public debut of my first book C.S. Lewis Goes to Hell: A Companion and Study Guide to The Screwtape Letters. While I do give a summary of the unique aspects of my book, the main focus of the talk is about the devils' secret weapon that is mentioned in nearly all of the letters. My book just list them, but this presentation provides more details and gives a practical application to one's life. Visit my website to contact me about giving this talk or a three or four part presentation on all of the places this weapon is mentioned or alluded to.

Screwtape reveals the secret outright in the fourth letter, but the method is mentioned either directly or indirectly in 75% of the letters. This sixth episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S.

(Re-Post) 200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis Episode 5

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The 5th episode of 200 Seconds series to encourage you to read The Screwtape Letters

200_Seconds_Ep_5.jpg

Democracy is a very important word here on Earth and in Hell. So much so, that the devils want to create confusion about what the word actually means. That's why their philological department is hard at work to keep the real meaning out of our minds. When you listen to the fifth episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" you'll learn some of what Screwtape thinks about how the practical meaning of democracy can be twisted.

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.

200_Seconds_Ep_3.jpg
Practicing humility can be a very humbling experience, one that might just lead to pride! 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.
