This week’s readings in Preparing for Easter center around our forgiveness in God. Just for review, we began Lent with readings that showed our position with God, moved to how God descends to save us in week two, and now, in week three, we’re confronting the truth of God’s forgiveness …

Several years ago, HarperOne published Preparing for Easter, a collection of readings from C.S. Lewis. As we enter Lent this week and begin our journey toward Jerusalem, I commend this daily guide. During the next five weeks, I hope to provide some bits and pieces from this collection, but that’s …

It may seem an obvious statement to say that Christianity hinges on the death and resurrection of Jesus, but nowadays with half-baked ideas and the jumbling of words and their meanings, we might get a Jesus who never actually died physically nor one who truly entered or conquered any grave. …

Easter is here. The great passion of death’s sting emptied into the dying Messiah. He would complete what he had said, “I am the resurrection and the life.” These three days changed the world, our perception of God, and his want for us. As we’ve read about pride in A …

“I know that many wiser and better Christians than I in these days do not like to mention Heaven and hell even in a pulpit,” says Lewis (The Weight of Glory). He goes on to say that nearly all the references in the New Testament about both destinations come from …

Resurrection is a subject that is central to the Christian narrative. Lewis addresses the idea of resurrection in his stories (Aslan and Eustace come to mind, for example), in his theological works, and in his letters. Here, I want to point out several occasions where Lewis discusses resurrection with hopes …

The idea that Christ is the corn king – the fulfillment of the myths that thread through history – rings loud and often in Lewis’s work. In Miracles Lewis presents the Incarnation as the greatest of all the signs of God.

Letters to Malcolm was the last book C. S. Lewis finished. Published posthumously in January 1964, three months after his death, it is one of Lewis’s best books though perhaps not one of his best known.  Tucked away in letter number eight is one of the most poignant short meditations …
