 “Myth Became Fact” was the seven essay chat I produced back in 2012. Although not directly related to Easter, it does touch on some aspects of it. I had the pleasure of catching up with Dr. Michael Ward, author of The Narnia Code and other books for this discussion. Note that we had some recording problems and the audio quality unfortunately didn’t come out as well as hoped. The essay is best found in God in the Dock.

Also for those of you hoping to find the third part of the Lewis and Women miniseries note that it will not be posted until April 28th, however it is available on a new page I created over a BandCamp (link below)


Lewis & Women #2 - "Factual" Women
April 06, 2014 08:46 AM PDT

This is the second of four shows that explores how C.S. Lewis viewed women. Some think he either hated females, or at least feared them. Even those who know this isn't true have a hard time explaining why. Dr. Crystal Hurd, who has done a series of blog posts on the topic, is William O'Flaherty's special guest to explore this topic. Gina Dalfonzo, the editor of Breakpoint.org joins in as guest co-host. This second podcast examines women that Lewis either knew or wrote to during his life ("factual" as opposed to the fictional females he created in his books).

This is the first of a four part miniseries exploring how C.S. Lewis viewed women.

Another female, Gina Dalfonzo, the editor of Breakpoint.org joins in as guest co-host. Today's podcast presents a general overview by briefly exploring nearly all of the issues related to this subject.

I normally don't repeat a podcast post so soon after it was originally posted, however I have a mini-series coming up and other new shows, so because this is an event happening at the end of May I wanted to make sure people heard about it in time to make plans to attend.

The following is a conversation I had with Dr. Pamela Jordan-Long from Taylor University about the 2014 C.S. Lewis Colloquium being held on campus May 29-June 1. She also gives some details about their C.S. Lewis Center which has a wide range of books from him and several other authors. The featured speakers include Dr. Michael Ward and Dr. Bruce Edwards who have been on previous All About Jack shows.

Conversations w/ Lewis & Golden Rules of Narnia (Verlarde)

Robert Verlarde is a former atheist who was strongly influenced by the works of C.S. Lewis and so it only seems fitting he has written a couple books to help introduce and enhance a person's ability to understand Lewis's writings.  This interview features BOTH Conversations with C.S. Lewis (from 2008) and The Golden Rules of Narnia (latest edition from 2010).

"Meditation on the Third Commandment" was the sixth essay chat produced when I started them in 2012. I'm repeating it now because many of you weren't aware of my shows back then. My special guest for this chat was Allyson Wieland. Allyson is the creator of behind CSL Book Club, an online resource for discussion questions for a number of books by C.S. Lewis. This essay is found in God in the Dock.

The following is a repeat of a short interview I did in 2012 about a website called "CSL Book Club." Allyson Wieland created the site to freely provide copies of study questions she created for her local C.S. Lewis group. Since the interview I also had her on the show for my occasional "Essay Chat" series. The link to the two discussions can be found below.

As this show is released it is the 72nd anniversary of the publication of The Screwtape Letters. This seemed the perfect time to release an interview I record in the last week with Paul McCusker about an Annotated Edition he did that was just released in October, 2013. As you may recalled I spoke with him previously about a Focus on the Family production called C.S. Lewis at War (interview link below). In THIS interview, learned how Paul became involved in this project and what to expect from the book.
