The Lion’s Claws

Eustace as a dragonIn C. S. Lewis’s The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Eustace Clarence Scrubb describes to Edmund how terrible it felt when Aslan, the Lion and Christ-figure, changed him from the dragon he’d become to the boy he was intended to be.

 

Through Heaven's Doorway

Open DoorwayWhen five-year-old Emily Kimball was hospitalized and heard she was going to die, she started to cry. Even though she loved Jesus and wanted to be with him, she didn’t want to leave her family behind. Then her mother had an inspired idea. She asked Emily to step through a doorway into another room, and she closed the door behind her. 

Inside Information about Mankind

Mere ChristianityThis is an excerpt from C. S. Lewis’s classic Mere Christianity. If you’ve never read the book, I highly recommend you do. And if you have read it, I think you’ll enjoy rereading it or listening to the audio, as I’ve done recently.

 

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.

His Final Interview: C.S. Lewis on the Future and Space Travel

SpaceShortly before he died November 22, 1963 (yes, the same day as John F. Kennedy), C. S. Lewis granted his final interview to Sherwood Elliot Wirt, of Decision Magazine. It’s a fascinating interview. I found the final two questions and answers interesting.

How much would we expect accidents to know about the accident of their beginnings?

C.S. LewisI was listening to God in the Dock on audio, and was struck by this portion of an interview with C. S. Lewis.

The Water of Life for the Thirsty

Flowing streamIn C. S. Lewis’s The Silver Chair, a young girl from earth, Jill Pole, is alone, lost, and very thirsty as she wanders through the foreign world of Narnia. Then she sees, for the first time, Aslan, the great and ferocious lion, standing by a stream of fresh water.

 

Off to the C.S. Lewis Conference

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.

The C. S. Lewis Summer Institute at Oxbridge, and our England Memories

C.S. LewisI know some of you, like me, have been deeply touched by the Lord through the writings of C. S. Lewis. So I’m going to tell you about something we’re doing this summer, just so you’ll all know about it, and in case a small number of you may sense God’s leading to attend.

After I spoke at a C. S. Lewis conference in Texas in November, I was asked to speak at the Lewis Summer Institute at Oxbridge, July 26 to August 3, 2011.
