(Re-Post) The Collected Poems of C. S. Lewis (Dr. Don King)

IN THIS REPEAT:: More from Dr. Don King. This time it's on The Collected Poems of C.S. Lewis.



CollectedPoemsofLewisDonKing.jpgSome Lewis readers are unaware that he wrote poetry (or at best are uninterested in it). Dr. Don King, editor of The Collected Poems of C.S. Lewis: A Critical Edition, believes such individuals are missing out on not only gaining a better understanding of the author, but they are also depriving themselves of some great writings. William O'Flaherty spoke with him about the scope of this new book (scheduled to released January 7, 2015) that brings together nearly all of the poetry of C.S. Lewis.

(Re-Post) Narnia Code (Single Interview w/ Dr. Ward) 2015r

In this repeat: Here's the single interview about The Narnia Code back in 2012.



NarniaCodeSingleInterview.jpg
Dr. Michael Ward's name was virtually unknown ten years ago. Today he's considered one of the top C.S. Lewis scholars and that's because of his landmark work Planet Narnia and the sequel that adapts that material, The Narnia Code. This latter book was actually first a TV special on the BBC before coming out on DVD. William O'Flaherty spoke with Dr. Ward in 2012 about all this, focusing mostly on the book version of The Narnia Code. Since then Michael has been on the show several times. Hear the difference between these works and about his favorite works from Lewis.

(Re-Post) The Faun’s Bookshelf (Dr. Charlie Starr)

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.

IN THIS REPEAT: The 5th episode of 200 Seconds series to encourage you to read The Screwtape Letters

200_Seconds_Ep_5.jpg

Democracy is a very important word here on Earth and in Hell. So much so, that the devils want to create confusion about what the word actually means. That's why their philological department is hard at work to keep the real meaning out of our minds. When you listen to the fifth episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" you'll learn some of what Screwtape thinks about how the practical meaning of democracy can be twisted.

(Re-Post) 200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis Episode 4

IN THIS REPEAT: The forth episode of my short-term series that encourages you to read The Screwtape Letters.

200_Seconds_Ep_4.jpg
Do words matter? Of course they do! That's why Screwtape tells Wormwood to either suggest more negative sounding terms or expressions that people associate with things they don't like. Words like "complacency," "unselfishness" and "Puritanical" are help for Hell's purposes. In this four episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" you'll be reminded about some of the ways the devils try to twist words to make it a weapon for their gain.
