(Re-Post) Exploring C.S. Lewis Misquotes and Misconceptions - Episode 1

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The debut episode of the series Explorling Lewis Misquotes and Misconceptions.

Podcast_EXPLORING_-_1a.jpg

If you have been on social media over the last few years then you have probably seen a quotation attributed to Lewis from someone that you wondered if he actually wrote. That happen to me time and time again; so much that I began to collect them as I researched whether or not Lewis wrote the quote in question. That led to a blog series examining each quotation (see link below). More recently I began collecting information related to the life of Lewis and his writings that are misunderstood and started a blog series on this (link also below). This led me to considering what you now see, the first of a six-part episode chatting about these topics. This initial show provides an overview of all the subjects address in the other programs. Guest host for today is Dr. Crystal Hurd.

(Re-Post) Not Quite Lewis - Questionable Lewisian Quotations (William O’Flaherty)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: Here's a short talk from William O'Flaherty from 2015 examining quotes attributed to Lewis...are they really from him?




NotQuiteLewis.jpgC.S. Lewis wrote many statements that standalone as great short quotations. However, some quotes when isolated from their context are actually problematic. That is, apart from their setting they often yield a very different understanding of what Lewis meant. Then there are quotes attributed to Lewis that are actually a incorrect paraphrase of something he wrote. This podcast explores these issues. It is William O'Flaherty presenting a twenty minute paper at the recent CSLIS conference that was held in Grove City, PA this year (late March, 2015). See below to read the actual paper and listen to a previous talk about quotations falsely attributed to Lewis.

(Re-Post) Light: C.S. Lewis’s First and Final Short Story (Dr. Charlie Starr)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: An earlier program from 2012 about a lost Lewis story that is a different version of one already known. 




Light_-_1st_and_Final.jpgThis book interview is from 2012, but it had not yet been featured here since changing the podcast audio hosting. It is a conversation with Dr. Charlie W. Starr and his book Light: C.S. Lewis's First and Final Short Story. It tells the story of how a manuscript surfaced that appeared to be a different version of a short story called "The Man Born Blind." The book reveals the results of his investigation and includes several interpretations of "Light." The interview was recorded at the 2012 C.S. Lewis Colloquium at Taylor University.

(Re-Post) The Heart of Light (Dr. Charlie Starr)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: I usually don't stray too far from material related to Lewis, but here's somewhat of an except. A fictional work by a Lewis scholar that had inspiration from him.


TheHeartofLight.jpg

I'm sharing an interview from respected C.S. Lewis scholar Dr. Charlie Starr, but it's not directly about Lewis. However, Charlie does announce news about upcoming articles related to Lewis towards the end of the show. However, the main focus is on a brand new fictional book that is influenced in part by Lewis and done in the vein of his Science Fiction trilogy. The book is called The Heart of Light: A Tale of Solomon Star and it is the first of what should be many great adventures. This is also different in another way, I had Dr. Crystal Hurd, a frequent guest on All About Jack conduct the interview. As you may remember she actually did another interview for me in 2013. It was a brief visit with Dr. Malcolm Guite.

(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 new book that released last month.



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.

(Re-Post) C.S. Lewis: A Biography of Friendship (Colin Duriez)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: My 2013 interview with Colin Duriez on his biography on Lewis. 


DuriezBioofFriendship.jpg

Colin Duriez is what you might call "an expert to the experts." He is among the top writers/scholars on not only C.S. Lewis, but also J.R.R. Tolkien. Just releasing now is his book C.S. Lewis: A Biography of Friendship. William O'Flaherty spoke with him about this title and why he chose to portray the life of Lewis through his friends.

(Re-Post) The A – Z of C.S. Lewis (Colin Duriez)

00:0000:00

IN THE REPEAT: Another great resource from Colin Duriez from a few years ago. 




A-ZLewisDuriez.jpg
Many books came out in 2013 on C.S. Lewis (the 50th anniversary of his death). Two alone actually came from Colin Duriez. I’m repeating the interview I did about his second because my previous place of hosting my audio files no longer has it there. The book is called The A – Z of C.S. Lewis: A Complete Guide to His Life, Thoughts and Writings. It takes an encyclopedic approach to the topic and thus provides a person to aspects of Lewis’s life and writings that might be left unnoticed. In this interview Colin provides details about the layout of the book and shares some selections from it.

(Re-Post) The Oxford Inklings (Colin Duriez)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: Interview with Colin Duriez about his book The Oxford Inklings.




TheOxfordInklings.jpgColin Duriez has written about C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien many times over his writing career as an expert on the two. But only this year (2015) has he come out with a book exploring the two of them along with a group of other friends who often met twice a week. The Oxford Inklings takes a look at the origins of this group that is often falsely called a "writer's group." In this chat with William O'Flaherty, he explains why it was much more while giving insightful details about the lives of the key members of this influential circle.

(Re-Post) Apologetics and the Christian Imagination (Dr. Holly Ordway)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: My show with Dr. Holly Ordway about new new apologetics book. 

Apologetics_and_the_Christian_Imagination.jpgNew for 2017 is a book by Dr. Holly Ordway entitled Apologetics and the Christian Imagination: An Integrated Approach to Defending the Faith.

She has previously been on All About Jack for a couple of “Essay Chat” podcasts and co-hosted a series dealing with The Narnia Code, and talking about her spiritual autobiography Not God’s Type.

(Re-Post) Writing Outside of the Inner Ring (Corey Latta)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: My most recent new episode about a talk Corey Latta gave in June 2018.

- - - -

Corey_at_Wade_2018.jpgDr. Corey Latta, author of C.S. Lewis and the Art of Writing, gave a talk at The Marion E. Wade Center during the recent 2018 C.S. Lewis Institute Summer Conference. "Writing Outside of the Inner Ring" is the revised title he told me when giving me permission to share his presentation. While sharing candidly about his own experiences, he uses Lewis's essay, "The Inner Ring" and several letters from 1930 to talk about motivation for writing (and other creative endeavors) and how to stay focused during times of discouragement.

(Re-Post) Surprised By Misquotes (William O’Flaherty)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: My last short talk (paper) at Taylor University...it's about my book, The Misquotable C.S. Lewis

---------

2018_Taylor_Talk_William_O_Flaherty.jpgI gave the following short talk on Friday, June 1, 2018 at the Taylor University Colloquium. My brief presentation was part of a variety of academic papers that were presented. The full title of my talk was Surprised By Misquotes: Unexpected Findings from The Misquotable C. S. Lewis. In it, I share some of the unusual details from my years of researching quotations credited to Lewis that he did not write. This talk, however, only gives a small snapshot of what is in the book.
