Today, love is overused and undervalued at the same time. We love everything from various foods to cars, from movies to retailers, from people to God himself. We may not consciously distinguish one use of love from another, in part because our speech is becoming more and more informal, but …

Lewis has a few things to say about heaven and hell. I’ve picked 10 guideposts below. They are truths from the Bible that he teases out in his work. And, what makes Lewis inviting is his use of imagination and his avoidance, one could say, of a systemized theology. No …

When you think about it, it’s obvious. Jesus didn’t write books, yet he’s the Author (and Finisher) of our faith. John tells us that Jesus is the Word of God, made flesh and living among us. This is such an important doctrinal Truth and a mystical joining of what was …

What comes to mind when you think of God’s love? Perhaps we turn to Paul’s passage on selfless love, that it is kind and not irritable, that it never envies nor rude or arrogant… that it doesn’t ever end (I Corinthians 13). Maybe we use flowery language and compare it …

In the first chapter of Mere Christianity, Lewis gets right to the crux of Christianity. “One of the creeds says that Christ is the Son of God ‘begotten, not created’; and it adds ‘begotten by his Father before all worlds’.” And, even though this sounds like a Christmas message, Lewis correctly …

Have you ever had the same stumbling block as Lewis? He says that when he first came to faith, he felt that all this talk about praising God seemed like only going through the motions if God was all-powerful. If he really is all-powerful, then why the demand? Lewis calls …

Lucy takes us through the wardrobe, we learn later, to experience a story that helps her believe again in what has become pedestrian in her world. The tale begins in a spare room and absorbs her entire world by the end of it.

I recently spoke with David Payne of Bird and Baby Productions. Already with such a name, you know David is a study of C.S. Lewis. As you might know, “Bird and Baby” is the affectionate name Lewis and Tolkien gave to the Eagle and Child Oxford pub where they met …

All Hallow’s Eve is celebrated historically by Christians in companionship with All Saints’ Day. It is in Hebrews 11 and 12 where we read a litany of Jewish leaders who looked forward in faith to what God was working out. Then in 12:1-2, we see the great cloud of witnesses …
