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.

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.

C. S. Lewis’s Influence on my Life and Writing, part 1

Those 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.

C.S. Lewis's Influence on My Life and Writing, part 2

In my last blog, I wrote about one of my three pilgrimages to Oxford. Each visit I’ve pondered what Lewis wrote: “You must picture me alone in that room in Magdalen…I gave in and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all of England.”

God’s Limitless Love

God’s Limitless Love

The apostle John says we know what God’s love is because of the unthinkable price Jesus paid for us, to turn us into God’s own children, fully acceptable in his sight. God’s love abounds.

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.
