Wrong Side of the Door

Lewis has this great moment in “The Weight of Glory” when this sense of longing for eternity really finds its way through the dark paths of my heart. He asks whether we are on the wrong side of God’s door because we can see the beauty and freshness of creation but …

There is No Safe Investment

When we follow Jesus we abandon our societal sense of safety and self-protection. As we run toward him our affections change and we become “imitators” of God, as our reading today from Ephesians states. Right?

Lewis on Love

  • 0 Comments

Before there was Lewis’ radio talk on four different kinds of love, produced by the BBC in 1958 (the only audio that we have still remaining of Lewis himself), and the subsequent publishing of The Four Loves in 1960, we have a reference in his letters about his thoughts on love, based …

Lewis on the Bible: The Fall

The Fall is the beginning of God’s story with humanity. It’s the moment in which we thought we might unravel God into our own likeness. Instead, it robbed us of our original majesty, as Lewis says in A Preface to Paradise Lost. And if we turn to Ransom’s journey of discovery in …

Lewis on the Bible

Lewis commented on the Bible throughout his life as a Christian. You’d expect such, given his engagement with theology and literature, let alone observation of human experience and culture. He certainly did so in a sweeping way (and often creative way), whether it be the various loves, the megaphone of …

Christmas for the Christian starts with Christmas day and lasts until Epiphany, also called the Manifestation of God to the Gentiles. It’s when the pagan wise men from the East make it to Nazareth with gifts of adoration for Jesus, who is likely about two years old when they arrive. …

Advent Reflections on Love

  • 0 Comments

Lewis has a lot to say about love. As you know, The Four Loves threads through the love of a mother, of a lover, of a friend, and of God himself. Each love exhibits different qualities, with agape love as the definition and conclusion of all love. As John reminds us in I …

Advent Reflections on Hope

  • 0 Comments

Although a younger tradition than the Lent, the leadup to Eastertide, Advent is a time of waiting, of anticipation afresh the Incarnation. At its start (this year, December 2), is a feast day to begin the new Christian year. Many non-denominational churches pass right into the talk of Christmas, ignoring …

Surprised By Misquotes

William O’Flaherty, with a Lewis search engine and years of knowledge at the ready, sleuths out the startling number of quotations from C.S. Lewis that he never said or wrote. He’s been doing this sort of investigation work for at least the last decade that I’ve known him. It’s an …

It’s a privilege to feature an interview with Dr. Janice Brown. She was a professor of English from Grove City College for 21 years before retiring in 2017. You may also know her as a specialist in Dorothy Sayers who also lectures on other writers in the “Inklings milieu,” so …
