The Leadership of C.S. Lewis (Dr. Crystal Hurd)

What is a leader? Was C.S. Lewis a leader? Dr. Crystal Hurd has thought about this for over a decade and concluded he definitely was because (among other things) of the influence or impact he has had on so many people. After completing her doctoral thesis in 2012 where she examined the topic, she expanded her research and the result is a book new for 2022, The Leadership of C.S. Lewis. In this podcast interview, she provides an overview of (as her subtitle reveals) the ten traits of a leader that encourages change and growth. They include humility, courage, resilience, and creativity.

Medieval_Mind_of_CSL_COVER_6nycl.jpg

IN THIS REPEAT: Learn about a book from Dr. Jason Baxter entitled The Medieval Mind of C.S. Lewis

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What type of mind did C.S. Lewis have? If you were to believe Dr. Jason Baxter, then he clearly had a “medieval” mind. Jason explains what he means by that in this podcast interview (also available on my YouTube channel). The book he discusses is entitled (understatedly) The Medieval Mind of C.S. Lewis. The subtitle spells things out even better: “How Great Books Shaped a Great Mind.” This book is new for 2022 (it was released in March). In this podcast hear Jason share (among other things) about the influence Dante and Boethius had on Lewis and how the medieval picture of the cosmos can still be useful today.

Dorothy_and_Jack_Gina_83d73.jpgNot many people are aware C.S. Lewis and Dorothy L. Sayers were friends. When did these two great writers meet and what impact did they have on each other’s lives? That is the topic of my podcast interview with Gina Dalfonzo, author of Dorothy and Jack: The Transforming Friendship of Dorothy L. Sayers and C.S. Lewis. While Sayers is most known for her detective novels, she wrote in other genres, as did Lewis.

(Re-Post) C. S. Lewis: Pre-Evangelism for a Post-Christian World (Brian M. Williams)

IN THIS REPEAT: Learning about Brian William's book C. S. Lewis: Pre-Evangelism for a Post-Christian World.

- - - - - -

CSL_Pre-Evangelism_for_a_Post-Christian_World...Few would deny that C.S. Lewis was a great writer, or that he helped people understand the Christian faith. However, not everyone realizes how his fictional works can help lay a foundation for those who are not Christian to be more open to the faith. Learn more about this in a podcast interview with Dr. Brian M. Williams and his new book C. S. Lewis: Pre-Evangelism for a Post-Christian World. After providing a foundational overview of the life of C.S. Lewis, Williams unfolds what Lewis believed about the nature of reality and his perspective of human imagination. Then he builds on this to explain Lewis's pre-evangelism strategy when creating fictional tales about Narnia and other stories.
