(Re-Post) Becoming C. S. Lewis (Dr. Hal Poe)

Becoming_CS_Lewis.jpg

IN THIS REPEAT - Dr. Hal Poe shares about his bio on the early life of C.S. Lewis in Becoming C.S. Lewis. 

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

How well do you know C.S. Lewis? You probably don't know Jack as well as you think, until you know his early life. Or more accurately, nearly all of Lewis' interests and tastes were formed in his first twenty years. That is the new book by Dr. Harry Lee (Hal) Poe, entitled Becoming C.S. Lewis examines these early years and shows how his youth influenced his later life and writings. This podcast interview features Dr. Poe explaining how he came to write this book (the first of three) and why knowing Jack Lewis (his friends called him "Jack") is best understood by exploring his formative years.

(Re-Post) The Grand Miracle Advent Devotion

IN THIS REPEAT - Learn about a great devotional to help you reflect on Advent. 

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

Grand_Miracle_Advent_Devotion_2019_.jpgC.S. Lewis and his friends, as well as those who influenced him, viewed the Incarnation with wonder and awe. That's why the Christian History Institute and the Marion E. Wade Center came together to release a small, but meaningful booklet entitled The Grand Miracle: Daily Reflections for the Season of Advent. It contains 28 devotions written by as many authors that contain a Scripture quotation, as well as a quotation from either C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dorthy L. Sayers, George MacDonald, G.K. Chesterton, Charles Williams, Owen Barfield, or Joy Davidman. William O'Flaherty spoke with Dr. Jennifer Woodruff Tait (managing editor of Christian History) about this Advent devotion that can offer an inspiring look at the birth of Christ at any time of the year.

The Rings of Power Rings Season 1 Reflections (Charlie and Sørina)

The entire first season of The Rings of Power has been released. Because I did an initial reaction show to the first two episodes with Dr. Sørina Higgins, I thought it would be fun to have her back. Joining her is Dr. Charlie Starr to reflect on The Rings of Power now that the premier season has ended. About the first thirty minutes are spoiler free, as more general issues like the problem or challenge of adaptation are addressed. As before, comparing and contrasting The Rings of Power as a TV show vs. a Tolkien adaptation is explored.

Cover_FULL_Interview_Rings_of_Power_INTIAL_Re...

The first season of The Rings of Power recently began. The following is a conversation with Dr. Sørina Higgins about her initial reactions to the first two episodes. William O’Flaherty recorded this with her the day before she was giving a talk about the Holy Grail.  Sørina actually attended one of the premiers of The Rings of Power held in New York about a week before it was released on Amazon Prime Video. In addition to giving her pros and cons of the series as a TV show compared to a Tolkien adaptation, she shares about meeting some of the actors and writers of the show.
