WRL03 – The Great Divorce

This podcast, part of an occasional feature to encourage you to read material from Lewis, focuses on one of the shortest works by him (excluding essays, of course). The Great Divorce was first released in weekly installments in The Guardian before published in 1946. If you have never read this fictional work then you will be pleasantly surprised about how much truth can be learned from the experiences of the characters! The guests sharing their thoughts are (in order of appearance): Dennis Beets, Gina DalFonzo, James Motter, and Brenton Dickieson.

WRL01 – The Last Battle

Last Battle (three covers)This 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.

Top 10 Questionable Lewis Quotes

top-10-pictureAt the beginning of 2016 I posted an article called Top 5 Questionable Lewis Quotes for 2015. Since then I’ve covered nearly twice as many more quotations (almost thirty) credited to Lewis that may or may not be from him. Also, recently I had a sharp increase of visitors to my site after an article by Gina Dalfonzo called Remaking Lewis. As a result, I thought it would be useful to list the top ten quotes since I started Confirming C.S. Lewis Quotations (CCSLQ) about fourteen months ago. The ranking is based on the number of visits to the individual pages.

If you’ve read any of my previous posts on this issue then you know I’ve come up with three categories for the results of my investigation. If not, then be sure to read my INTRODUCTION to Confirming C.S. Lewis Quotations article.

So, the following are the ten most popular posts about questionable Lewis quotations and whether or not the quotes are from him. Please note that only the main part of the article for each post is shared below. You’ll need to visit the original story to see an additional component found with most of the posts that shared the closest material Lewis did write related to the topic (or better quotations if he did, but the context makes it better if the questionable one is shared).  You can follow the link (in the title of the quote) to read the original post. Finally, for a complete list of questionable quotations (that is updated as I add a new article) can be found on the series overview page.
