11-12r Essay Chat – The Vision of John Bunyan (Kevin Belmonte)

The Vision of John Bunyan“The Vision of John Bunyan” was the topic for my 11th and 12th essay chat back in 2012. For this re-release I combined the shows because together they are just over twenty minutes. Kevin Belmonte, who joined me for the third essay chat (and other shows) returned for this discussion. As always, in addition to exploring several key points in the article, you will learn background information about it, as well as related articles or books on a similar topic. “The Vision of John Bunyan” is best found in Selected Literary Essays (a title that was re-issued in paperback and made available in eBook for the first time in late 2013).

D.L. Moody: A Life (Kevin Belmonte)

DL Moody (Kevin Belmonte)This is a very different edition of All About Jack. Normally I share material more directly related to C.S. Lewis, but that’s not the case today. Instead I’m sharing an interview I asked Gina Dalfonzo to conduct on my behalf with Kevin Belmonte about his new book called D.L. Moody A Life: Innovator, Evangelist, World Changer. While we know of no direct influence Moody had on Lewis, we do know that Moody advocated what Lewis would later call “Mere Christianity.”

Period CriticismIn 2012 I started an occasional series of chats about a single essay by Lewis. The following is the third in that series of “essay chats.” The shorter worker being explored today with Kevin Belmonte is “Period Criticism.” Belmonte is the author of several books, including Defiant Joy: The Remarkable Life & Impact of G.K. Chesterton. “Period Criticism” is found in On Stories.

Many are reflecting on the fact that November 22, 2013 is the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis’s death. The follow interview features three people I’ve had as a guest previously sharing their thoughts on several questions I asked them related to aspects of Lewis’s works they’ve enjoyed and how his material has impacted their life.
