How to be a Christian & How to Pray (Zach Kincaid)

00:0000:00

Two_New_Collections_Previous_Materials_.jpgNew and old readers of C.S. Lewis should find interesting the recent release (2018) of two collections of previously released material built around a theme. The following interview is with Zach Kincaid, the person who made the selections for both books.
How To Be A Christian is a somewhat awkwardly worded title for a collection that is about what Lewis has written about understanding the Christian life and how to practically apply one's faith. The other book, How to Pray makes more sense as a title, as it brings together the variety of writings from Lewis on prayer.

(Re-post) WRL02 - Dymer

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT; From my series about why you should read Lewis; this one about his poem Dymer.

Dymer_3_Covers_.jpgThis podcast focuses on one of the lesser known works by C.S. Lewis; a long narrative poem entitled Dymer. This show is part of an occasional series indirectly begun in 2016 and officially kicked-off this year, 2017. The series is called "Why Read Lewis," and the aim is to encourage you to read or re-read works written by Lewis. Today's program features just three individuals reflecting and/or summarizing Dymer. They are Dr. Jerry Root, Dr. Crystal Hurd and Dr. Don King.
Dymer was first published in 1926, prior to Lewis becoming a Christian and was later reprinted in 1950.

(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 book that released this year (2018).



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.
