Another Anniversary Reflections on The Screwtape Letters

Another 75th Screwtape ReflectionsPreviously I did a podcast featuring a variety of guest reflecting on The Screwtape Letters. I’m doing that again today with six more individuals. The reason for this, in addition to The Screwtape Letters being my favorite book from Lewis, is the fact that it was 75 years ago this month (July) that Lewis wrote the original preface to his landmark work. Follow the link to the previous show to learn more background about the book. Comments today are from Dr. Michael Ward, Dr. Jim Buchholz, Sarah Waters, Dr. Rob Fennell, Peter S. Williams, Dr. Don Williams. For those who have websites you can follow the links below to learn more about them.

75th Anniversary Reflections on “The Weight of Glory”

Weight of Glory Sermon 75th AnniversaryC.S. Lewis is known for many things, the least of which is the fact that he actually preached several sermons during his life. This month marks the 75th anniversary of what was first heard by those present at Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford on June 8, 1941. Later it became available as the now famous essay, “The Weight of Glory.” The following are some reflections on this shorter work that has had a great impact on so many. They are from Rob Fennell, Peter S. Williams, Corey Latta, Sarah Waters, Will Vaus, Carolyn Curtis, Michael Ward and Karl Johnson.

2015 Recap, Part Two

2015 Recap Part TWOThis is the second of a two-part show reflecting on the new podcasts I posted in 2015. As noted previously, last year was very busy …almost 40 new shows (or never available via AAJ) were released. In this final recap for last year I finish out my reflection on the remaining programs not covered in the previous episode. Speaking of, if you haven’t heard it then be sure to listen. A direct link is provided below. As I did last time, I briefly describe the new shows and then for most of them I provide an excerpt from it. Plus, below you will find direct links to hear the entire podcast of those shows.

The Narnia Code Series 05 (Shows 11-13)

Narnia Code 05 (11-13)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.

The Narnia Code Series 04 (Shows 8-10)

Narnia Code 04 (8-10)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. 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 and it covers the eighth, ninth and tenth chapters from The Narnia Code; they deal with The Horse and His Boy, The Magician’s Nephew and The Last Battle and reveal the specific “code” that Dr. Ward discovered for each book.
