C . S. Lewis, The Romantic Rationalist, and Longing for the New Earth

C. S. Lewis, The Romantic RationalistIn Mere Christianity Lewis lamented that we haven’t been trained to want Heaven: "Our whole education tends to fix our minds on this world. …when the real want for Heaven is present in us, we do not recognize it. Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world."

C. S. Lewis on Gambling and Church Attendance

God in the Dock audioI have been rereading C. S. Lewis’s God in the Dock, a collection of his essays. Actually, I’ve been listening to the audio, sent to me by the wonderful folks at christianaudio.com. I love it. I am a big fan of audio.

C. S. Lewis on Good and Bad, Christianity and Dualism

Mere Christianity

I’ve been “rereading” Mere Christianity, actually listening to it on audio. I first read it as a young Christian forty years ago. I’m amazed that this book seems to get even better with time.

C.S. LewisThose who have read my books know that all of them have been touched in one way or another by C.S. Lewis, because ultimately the books we write are the overflow of the books we’ve read. I look forward to meeting Jack Lewis, and exploring the New Earth, where there will be time for us all to walk and talk, with new friends who are also old friends, in the joyful presence of King Jesus.

Calvin Miller, author and Christ-lover, with the Lord

Calvin MillerFive days ago a friend and author, poet, artist, speaker and professor Calvin Miller exited this world and entered a better one. The first time I met Calvin, I told him how his classic Singer trilogy had shaped and influenced me and charged my imagination as a teenager, a brand new Christian in the 70’s.

Campus Crusade's Name Change

CruI so emphatically agree with John piper's assessment of this that I'm quoting his whole blog on it. Do NOT interpret the name change as compromise, but only as good strategy.

Can a graphic novel be Christ-honoring and gospel-centered?

Graphic novelsI’ve found there’s a common stereotype among believers that a graphic novel is inherently immoral, theologically unsound, and undermines rather than uplifts God’s Word, Christ, and the gospel. It’s true that secular graphic novels frequently have themes and content that dishonor God. But there are exceptions to this.

Can Christians Lose Their Salvation?
