Taylor Colloquium 2014
February 25, 2014 07:00 PM PST
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.
CSL Book Club (Allyson Wieland)
February 17, 2014 07:03 AM PST
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.

Back in 2012 it was the 70th anniversary of The Screwtape Letters book being published on February 9th. In celebration of this I offer the following recording (link above, text below) of Screwtape reflecting on the occasion.
Defiant Joy (Kevin Belmonte)
January 28, 2014 07:25 AM PST
The following is a repeat of 2012 interview I did with professional writer Kevin Belmonte. This was my first time speaking with him, but he has since been on the show several other times (see links below). The main focus for today's show is on Defiant Joy, one of the (now three) books about G.K Chesterton he's written.

EC05r - The Seeing Eye with Will Vaus (Essay Chat)
January 18, 2014 08:58 AM PST
The following is a repeat of an earlier essay chat I first posted in 2012. This is the fifth in an occasional series of programs examining a single shorter work by C.S. Lewis. Today Will Vaus is my guest, he has written a number of books related to C.S. Lewis. Below you can find links to the ones I've done an interview with him. In this program we explore "The Seeing Eye" which is most easily found in the book Christian Reflections.
CSL - A Dramatic Life (William Griffin)
January 08, 2014 11:22 AM PST
As previously noted, 2013 was a very busy year. In fact today I have a show that was recorded before the end of last year, but with the breaking news of a CS Lewis movie called Jack & Tollers and other end of the year shows I didn't get to post it until now. In late November, 2013 the New York C.S. Lewis Society held a special event to honor Lewis on the 50th anniversary of his death. One of the speakers was William Griffin, an editor and writer who did the unique biography on Lewis in the 1980's called C.S. Lewis: A Dramatic Life. In the UK the book was published as C.S. Lewis: The Authentic Voice. Griffin also edited The Joyful Christian, a book containing over 100 passages from Lewis's religiously themed writings.
2013 Best of Recap

Over the last year I've had the privilege of interviewing many individuals. I checked the data of what shows were downloaded the most and the following podcast shares some of them. The program is just over 30 minutes, so I only share some brief moments from them. Check the links below to listen to those entire shows (and learn what I highlight). I also provide a second list of links to shows I didn't include in the recap (because they were in the last two months) that were among the top downloads for the year.

The following is a special interview recorded 12/16/13 with both screenwriters from JACK & TOLLERS, Darren Jacobs and Dr. Louis Markos. The focus of the show today is more on information about the screenplay itself and what you can expect to see in the movie.
PAST INTERVIEWS WITH DR. MARKOS:
December 15, 2013 07:59 PM PST
Dr. Louis Markos has written several books on C.S. Lewis and some have been highlighted here before (see list below). Last year he released a book dealing with the fiction of J.R.R. Tolkien AND C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia. It's called On the Shoulders of Hobbits: The Road to Virtue with Tolkien and Lewis. The following link is an interview William O'Flaherty did with him about this book.
