(Re-Post) Tolkien’s Modern Reading (Holly Ordway)

IN THIS REPEAT: Learn about Holly Ordway's 2021 book Tolkien's Modern Reading with co-host Lisa Coutras. 

- - - - 

Tolkien_s_Modern_Reading7ozzh.jpgC.S. Lewis had many friends...the most famous was J.R.R. Tolkien, whom he worked with for many years at Oxford University. Just as with Lewis, there are many misconceptions about Tolkien. One is that he "read very little modern fiction, and took no serious notice of it." Dr. Holly Ordway has studied the issue for many years and discovered Tolkien was much more aware of modern culture and the inspiration for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings was not only medieval. She joined William O'Flaherty for a podcast interview to share her insightful findings. Dr. Lisa Coutras also joined the show to help with co-hosting.

(Re-Post) Not God’s Type (Dr. Holly Ordway)

IN THIS REPEAT: Dr. Holly Ordway was an atheist who came to believe in Christianity. Here's a repeat of her story from my chat with her in 2014 



NotGodsType2.jpg

In late 2011 I spoke with Dr. Holly Ordway about Not God's Type (which first came out in 2010). A new edition was just release (2014) that elaborates further on her conversion from atheism and further developments since becoming a Christian. Hers is a fascinating story that will be interesting to all. Learn how the writings of C.S. Lewis prepared her in many ways to come to faith and then grow as a believer.
