[PODCAST] The Myth of Love Lecture Series (Andrew Lazo)

Even those who enjoy the wide variety of books by C.S. Lewis are sometimes confused when they get to his last published novel, Till We Have Faces. What was he trying to do with the retelling of the story of Cupid and Psyche? How could he completely turn from writing material for Christians to release such a strange tale? Why did consider it his best book? Inklings scholar Andrew Lazo has been studying Till We Have Faces for many years and believes he can help both those who enjoy the book and those who are puzzled by it. This podcast interview details a new lecture series for late 2017 and early 2018 that will be a book in the near future. Learn a few of the insights Lazo has made and how he might be coming to a city near you to speak on the topic.

(PODCAST) Exploring C.S. Lewis Misquotes and Misconceptions – Episode 1

If you have been on social media over the last few years then you have probably seen a quotation attributed to Lewis from someone that you wondered if he actually wrote. That happen to me time and time again; so much that I began to collect them as I researched whether or not Lewis wrote the quote in question. That led to a blog series examining each quotation (see link below). More recently I began collecting information related to the life of Lewis and his writings that are misunderstood and started a blog series on this (link also below). This led me to considering what you now see, the first of a six-part episode chatting about these topics. This initial show provides an overview of all the subjects address in the other programs. Guest host for today is Dr. Crystal Hurd.
