Here's more about the secret weapon the devils try to use again us. Last time I introduced the topic by mentioning where it is told about in the fourth letter by Screwtape.

(Re-Post) The Narnia Code Series 05 (Shows 11-13)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The final three shows from my series on The Narnia Code.



NarniaCode0511-13.jpg
This is the fifth and final episode in the re-packaged series on The Narnia Code. It combines what was previously the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth episodes. Back in 2012 I had the privilege to interview Dr. Michael Ward for a series of thirteen episodes to discuss his book The Narnia Code. With me to help co-host the show was Dr. Holly Ordway. Due to the series being in so many parts I was reluctant to re-post it, but because this year is not only the 65th anniversary of the publication of the first Narnia story, but also the 10th anniversary of the first Hollywood version of the Narnia movies I felt it was the perfect time to do so. As noted, I decided to combine three shows for this posting. It covers the last two chapters from The Narnia Code. If you haven't listened to the previous episodes then be sure to follow the links below to give them a listen.

NarniaCode048-10.jpg
This is the fourth episode of five in the re-packaged series on The Narnia Code. It combines what was previously the eighth, ninth and tenth episodes.

(Re-Post) WRL01 - The Last Battle

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The first official show in the occassional series Why Read C.S. Lewis. This one is on THE LAST BATTLE. 

Last_Battle_three_covers_.jpgThis podcast focuses on The Last Battle and is part of a new series that I "accidentally" began in 2016. It was then that I gathered together a handful of individuals giving a testimony on a particular work by C.S. Lewis. It started with the fact that The Screwtape Letters first came out in weekly installments in 1941 and I wanted to honor this landmark and encourage people to read or re-read that book. Later I realized that it would be fruitful to spotlight EACH of Lewis' works that way. So, I began to record a variety of individuals on a few books that had similar landmark anniversaries last year. This project was delayed and then I realized there was no need to select works based on a particular anniversary of publication.

It may seem odd to begin a spotlight on one of the Narnia books by presenting testimonies on The Last Battle. This title was selected initially because last year was the 60th anniversary of its release. So, I already had enough people recorded to release the show and thought why not go ahead and share it! On the show today (in order of appearance) is: Christin Ditchfield Lazo, Dennis Beets, Gina Dalfonzo, Dr. Holly Ordway and Dr. Michael Ward.

Due to the series being in so many parts I was reluctant to re-post it, but this year is not only the 65th anniversary of the publication of the first Narnia story, but also the 10th anniversary of the first Hollywood version of the Narnia movies.

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: The second of five podcasts exploring The Narnia Code with Dr. Michael Ward.




NarniaCode024-5.jpgThis is the second episode in the re-packaged series on The Narnia Code. It combines what was previously the fourth and fifth episodes. Back in 2012 I had the privilege to interview Dr. Michael Ward for a series of thirteen episodes to discuss his book The Narnia Code. With me to help co-host the show was Dr. Holly Ordway. Due to the series being in so many parts I was reluctant to re-post it, but this year (2015) is not only the 65th anniversary of the publication of the first Narnia story, but also the 10th anniversary of the first Hollywood version of the Narnia movies. But, as noted, I decided to combine two or more shows for this posting. The podcast today, as noted is the second in the new series, and it covers the fourth and fifth chapters from The Narnia Code; they deal with the first two published Narnia books and reveal the specific "code" that Dr. Ward discovered.

(Re-Post) The Narnia Code Series 01 (Shows 1-3)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: Revisiting the re-release of my Narnia Code series with Dr. Michael Ward; episodes 1-3 in one podcast.




NarniaCode011-3.jpgBack in 2012 I had the privilege to interview Dr. Michael Ward for a series of thirteen episodes to discuss his book The Narnia Code. With me to help co-host the show was Dr. Holly Ordway. Due to the length of the series I had hesitated to re-release it even though I change my podcast hosting location. However, because in 2015 it was the 65th anniversary of the publication of the first Narnia story I felt it was a good time; especial when I decided to combine several episodes to make it into a five-part series. What follows is the first three programs where the initial three chapters from the book are explored to set the stage for Dr Ward's discovery.

(Re-Post) Live Like a Narnian (Joe Rigney) 2016r

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: interview about Live Like a Narnian




Live_Like_a_Narnian.jpgHere's an interview first released in 2013, but not shared again since my podcast hosting changed. It's a book interview about Live Like a Narnian, a title from Joe Rigney. The subject obviously deals with Narnia, but it looks at it from the standpoint of Christian discipleship. Joe is from Bethlehem College and Seminary and was one of the speakers at the recent Desiring God conference on C.S. Lewis. This is essentially the same recording from three years ago so there isn't a mention of my book about The Screwtape Letters, so be sure to follow the link below to learn more!

Screwtape reveals the secret outright in the fourth letter, but the method is mentioned either directly or indirectly in 75% of the letters. This sixth episode of "200 Seconds in Hell with C.S. Lewis" points you to the information told to Wormwood to help you overcome the schemes of the devils.

Starr and his book Light: C.S. Lewis's First and Final Short Story.

(Re-Post) Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians (Dr. Chris R. Armstrong)

00:0000:00

IN THIS REPEAT: An interview with Dr. Chris Armstrong about his book Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians




What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about the Middle Ages? Maybe it would be better to ask when was the last time you even thought about the Medieval_Wisdom_for_Modern_Christians.jpAges? Probably not too recently. However, Dr. Chris R. Armstrong believes it's very important to consider this period of time. In fact, it's an age that C.S. Lewis was very familiar with and also encouraged others to consider. In Medieval Wisdom for Modern Christians Dr. Armstrong details a variety of areas every Christian should be open to learning about that can enhance one's spiritual growth.
