Honoring the Legacy of Dr. Christopher Mitchell
July 16, 2014 05:12 AM PDT
The following podcast is done in honor of Dr. Christopher Mitchell who passed away unexpectedly on July 10, 2014. It's been often expressed by those mourning the loss of a loved one or close friend that they wished they had shared their reflective remarks to the person before they had died. While I don't if the following individuals sharing their thoughts about Chris didn't say them to him, they are nevertheless touching words about someone who impacted the lives of many people around the world. Some may not recognize Chris's name, that's likely because he was a humble person who preferred focusing on encouraging others than spending time trying to make a name for himself.
Wade Center/Dr. Christopher Mitchell
July 13, 2014 02:51 PM PDT
As this podcast episode is being repeated (with a new introduction), news of the death of Dr. Christopher Mitchell is less than a week old. This interview features Chris from a chat William O'Flaherty had with him in 2012 while he was still the Director of the Marion E. Wade Center. In 2013 he moved to teach at Biola University. While this conversation focuses mostly on the Wade, Chris also shares some of his favorite books by and about Lewis.

Bruce discusses the regular features found in each issue of Sehnsucht along with articles by Dr. David Downing and Dr. Don King that is in this latest issue. Also learn about the Arizona C.S. Lewis Society, the group that publishes Sehnsucht.

On my Resource Spotlight section at EssentialCSLewis.com I recently highlighted three videos from the C.S. Lewis Symposium that were filmed last year and just uploaded to YouTube. I had the chance to speak with Peter Byrom from Christian Evidence about these videos. Peter did the editing of them and gives a short summary of each, along with other details related to the videos. These three videos features a lecture by Dr. Alister McGrath, Dr. Malcolm Guite and panel discussion lead by Dr. Michael Ward.

Many think of Mere Christianity just as single book that is great at helping you understand and defend the faith. However, not only was it originally released as three different books and four series of radio talks, but there are many other fascinating behind the scenes details that you can learn from C.S. Lewis & Mere Christianity: The Crisis That Created a Classic. This book by Paul McCusker is just being released. Previously I've had Paul on the show discussing a radio drama (C.S. Lewis at War) and The Screwtape Letters: Annotated Edition (see links before for those shows).
A Visit with C.S. Lewis (Dr. Kevin Radaker)
June 15, 2014 03:29 PM PDT
Do you wish you could hear C.S. Lewis speak in person? Of course, it's not possible, however if you catch Dr. Kevin Radaker perform "A Visit with C.S. Lewis" you might think you actually had! I chatted with Kevin when he presented his dramatic portrayal of Lewis at Taylor University. He also does a couple of other Lewis programs that he describes in the interview.What Lewis NEVER Wrote (with William O'Flaherty)
June 07, 2014 11:57 AM PDT
In this show I'm sharing a 20 minute academic paper I presented at Taylor University that was part of the 9th Frances White Ewbank Colloquium on C.S. Lewis & Friends and given on Friday, May 30, 2014. The presentation I did was on quotations falsely attributed to Lewis. It was called "What Lewis NEVER Wrote." Finally, when recording this talk I neglected to consider the fact that when I was advancing the PowerPoint presentation my recording device was too close to the computer...so there you will unfortunately hear a lot of annoying clicks that I was unable to edit out of the audio.
