Women and C.S. Lewis (Carolyn Curtis)

Women and CS LewisDoes C.S. Lewis’s life and his writings have anything to say to our world today, especially in relation to females? That’s the very issue Women and C.S. Lewis aims to tackle. It does so by gathering together a variety of scholars and thinkers (both men and women) who are very familiar with Lewis to, as its subtitle says, find “what his life and literature reveal for today’s culture.” William O’Flaherty spoke with Carolyn Curtis, one of the co-editors of the book about this new release for 2015. Contributors include many who have been guests before on the podcast: Dr. Devin Brown, Colin Duriez, Dr. David Downing, Andrew Lazo, Dr. Crystal Hurd, Paul McCusker, Dr. Holly Ordway, Dr. Michael Ward, Dr. Alister McGrath, Dr. Don King and Revd Dr. Malcolm Guite.

CSL – Life, Works and Legacy pt. 1 (Dr. Bruce Edwards)

CSL Life Works Legacy pt 1Back in 2007 a four-volume set entitled C.S. Lewis: Life, Works, and Legacy was released. Dr. Bruce Edwards edited this ambitious effort. William O’Flaherty caught up with him recently to discuss this reference work that is often overlooked because it is priced for libraries and not the general public. In this podcast Dr. Edwards provides some insight into how this 1,400 page effort came to be, along with giving some highlights of what you will find in volumes one and two. The first book focus on “An Examined Life” and the second details with Lewis as “Fantasist, Mythmaker, and Poet.”

Seven Literary Sages (Christian History magazine)

Seven Literary SagesC.S. Lewis is among a group of six other authors honored at the Marion E. Wade Center (“The Wade”) at Wheaton College in Illinois. George MacDonald, G. K. Chesterton, J. R. R. Tolkien, Dorothy L. Sayers, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield are the other individuals you can do in-depth research on in one location. But what if you wanted to learn about one key idea that each of these authors were known for? That’s where the latest issue of Christian History comes in. They’ve just released an issue entitled “Seven Literary Sages” that accomplishes that and much more. William O’Flaherty spoke with Dr. Jennifer Woodruff Tait, the managing editor of the magazine to learn about an issue that features content by Dr. Michael Ward, Dr. David Downing and Colin Duriez.
