No Ordinary People (Joel Heck)

No_Ordinary_People_COVER_8oq36.jpg
While there are books related to Lewis that explore some of his friendships, none examine the wide range of these relationships like No Ordinary People: 21 Friendships of C.S. Lewis. The author, Dr. Joel Heck, recently spoke about this book that came out in late 2021 to William O'Flaherty. In this podcast hear Joel share from each of the sections, where he reveals interesting facts about the friendship. In the book, they are divided into three categories: Side-by-Side Friends, Opponents, But Friends, Co-Workers and Fellow Pilgrims. Some of the profiles are Janie Moore, Sister Penelope, Arthur C. Clarke, Alec Vidler, Stella Aldwinckle and Maureen Moore.

(Re-Post) Another Anniversary Reflections on The Screwtape Letters

IN THIS REPEAT: In 2016 I did a couple of shows marking the 75th anniversary of the letters from Screwtape being released weekly before the book came out in 1942. Here's the second of two shows celebrating the landmark material. 


Another_75th_Screwtape_Reflections.jpgPreviously I did a podcast featuring a variety of guests reflecting on The Screwtape Letters. I'm doing that again today with six more individuals. The reason for this, in addition to The Screwtape Letters being my favorite book from Lewis, is the fact that it was 75 years ago this month (July) that Lewis wrote the original preface to his landmark work. Follow the link to the previous show to learn more background about the book. Comments today are from Dr. Michael Ward, Dr. Jim Buchholz, Sarah Waters, Rob Fennell, Peter S. Williams, Dr. Don Williams. For those who have websites you can follow the links below to learn more about them.

(Re-Post) The Screwtape Letters: Annotated Edition (2016R)

In this repeat: Another reminder about a previous interview about The Screwtape Letters: Annotated Edition.




ScrewtapeAnnotated.jpg

Back in 2014 I first released this interview with Paul McCusker about The Screwtape Letters: Annotated Edition that had only been release a few months before that show was posted. I had yet to share this conversation again since moving my podcast hosting to Podbean, so it has been unavailable for awhile. This year (2016) is the 75th  anniversary of the letters first appearing in a small church publication before they came out in book form in the UK in 1942. So, it seem especially important to share interview again because of this fact. Learn how Paul became involved in this project and what information you will and won't see in it.

(Re-Post) Shining Light on Screwtape’s Darkest Secret (William O’Flaherty)

IN THIS REPEAT: A talk I gave in early April 2016 about a running theme in The Screwtape Letters.




Screwtape_s_Darkest_Secret.jpg

I just gave the following talk on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the Inklings Fellowship Weekend Retreat that was held in Montreat, NC at Montreat College. It was also the public debut of my first book C.S. Lewis Goes to Hell: A Companion and Study Guide to The Screwtape Letters. While I do give a summary of the unique aspects of my book, the main focus of the talk is about the devils' secret weapon that is mentioned in nearly all of the letters. My book just list them, but this presentation provides more details and gives a practical application to one's life. Visit my website to contact me about giving this talk or a three or four part presentation on all of the places this weapon is mentioned or alluded to.

(Re-Post) An Evening with C.S. LEWIS (David Payne)

IN THIS REPEAT: Learn about David Payne and the variety of plays he has done, including "An Evening with C.S. Lewis."

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

Evening_w_CSL_David_Payne_79eon.jpgMany people wish they could meet someone famous like C.S. Lewis in order to learn about their life firsthand. But, because he died back in 1963 (on the same day U.S. President Kennedy was killed) that's not possible, or is it? The following is a podcast interview with David Payne who has portrayed Lewis on stage for over 20 years. "An Evening with C.S. Lewis," is actually only one of several plays David has produced (follow the link to his main website to learn about the others). David covers Lewis's life in an entertaining way and has done over 1,000 performances of the one-man show.
