What is a leader? Was C.S. Lewis a leader? Dr. Crystal Hurd has thought about this for over a decade and concluded he definitely was because (among other things) of the influence or impact he has had on so many people. After completing her doctoral thesis in 2012 where she examined the topic, she expanded her research and the result is a book new for 2022, The Leadership of C.S. Lewis. In this podcast interview, she provides an overview of (as her subtitle reveals) the ten traits of a leader that encourages change and growth. They include humility, courage, resilience, and creativity. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Purchase a copy of The Leadership of C.S.

"My own debt to [Unspoken Sermons] is almost as great as one man can owe to another." With these words, C.S. Lewis acknowledged the role the George MacDonald's spiritual writings (as well as his novels) played in his own faith journey and theology. In this week's episode Drs. Crystal and David C. Downing, along with Producer Aaron Hill, explore a volume of MacDonald quotes collected and edited by C.S. Lewis called George MacDonald: An Anthology. Explore literary and theological parallels between Lewis and MacDonald, the theological themes that marked MacDonalds life and spiritual writings, and the ongoing relevance of MacDonald's writings for Christians living in the 21st century.

If you were to believe Dr. Jason Baxter, then he clearly had a “medieval” mind. Jason explains what he means by that in this podcast interview (also available on my YouTube channel). The book he discusses is entitled (understatedly) The Medieval Mind of C.S. Lewis. The subtitle spells things out even better: “How Great Books Shaped a Great Mind.” This book is new for 2022 (it was released in March).

An elder C.S. Lewis looks back on his remarkable journey from hard-boiled atheist to the most renowned Chrsitian writer of the past century. The Most Reluctant Convert features award-winning actor Max McLean as the older Lewis and Nicholas Ralph - breakout star of PBS Materpiece's All Creatures Great and Small - as young Lewis. Beautifully filmed in and around Oxford, this engaging biopic follows the creator of The Chronicles of Narnia from the tragic death of his mother when he was just nine years- old, through his strained relationship with his father, to the nightmare of the trenches of World War I to Oxford University, where friends like J.R.R. Tolkien challenge his unbelief. Norman Stone Norman Stone began his professional career in television as the youngest producer/director to be working at the BBC, and soon established himself as a top film maker with his highly acclaimed film A Different Drummer about the blind and deaf Christian poet, Jack Clemo. Four years later, he created Shadowlands, the gripping film drama on the love and loss of C.S. Lewis, which earned two BAFTA awards, an International Emmy, and the coveted ‘Prague D'or' for Best Director. This film went on to be an award-winning stage play, as well as a Hollywood movie.Other dramas followed included Martin Luther – Heretic, starring Jonathan Pryce; New World with James Fox; The Vision starring Dirk Bogarde, Lee Remick and Helena Bonham-Carter, and the award-winning Burston Rebellion with Eileen Atkins and Bernard Hill. Stone was also asked to direct the internationally acclaimed CBS co-production Pied Piper, starring Peter O'Toole. He then directed two of the famous BBC Miss Marples films, starring the iconic Joan Hickson in the title role, and also, The Black Velvet Gown, which earned him his second International Emmy. Always interested in experimenting with new forms of filmic storytelling, Stone went on to create and direct The Dream of a Ridiculous Man, which starred Jeremy Irons and was nominated for a prestigious ACE Award in the category of Best International Drama. This experience led directly to Tales from the Mad House, an award-winning series of one-man dramas, featuring such stars as Jonathan Pryce, Dame Eileen Atkins, Joss Ackland, Claire Bloom, James Cosmo and Helen Baxendale, before making the gritty, Glasgow feature film, Man Dancin' which collected more international awards.A string of new dramas followed, including C.S. Lewis - Beyond Narnia, Florence Nightingale, The Narnia Code and KJB - The Book that Changed the World (winner of The Templeton, Movie Guide, Epiphany Prize).In 2020, Norman completed a major Feature Documentary narrated by Ewan McGregor, The Final Fix, exploring a remarkably effective new treatment for drug addiction, and in 2021, during lockdown, he wrote and directed a new, creative drama on C.S. Lewis called The Most Reluctant Convert. This film was cinema-premiered in over 500 American cities in November 2021 and has already been seen in over 120 countries around the world.Norman is currently preparing a dramatically challenging feature film, Raising Hell, the true story of the battle to beat child prostitution in Victorian England, and is also developing an exciting, new TV action series, ROK, set in Gibraltar and the Mediterranean.Website: https://cslewismovie.com/Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBd8bYTMoTKlUAk4IVyb16QFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/CSLewisMovieInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/fpa_theatre/IMDB: YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBd8bYTMoTKlUAk4IVyb16Q

Aslan's Strength returns by Celia Redgate "O children," said the Lion, "I feel my strength coming back to me. Oh children, catch me if you can!" He stood for a second, his eyes very bright, his limbs quivering, lashing himself with his tail. Then he made a leap high over their heads and landed on the other side of the Table. Laughing, though she didn't know why, Lucy scrambled over it to reach him. Aslan leaped again. A mad chase began. (From The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis.) The whole thrust of the Christian faith depends on and revolves around Christ's resurrection from the dead. So too in a greatly scaled down ways do we as individuals, communities and even nations go through times of renewed ‘resurrection' after passing through various ordeals that may have lasted a very long time, emerging from them with renewed hope and strength. In wild winter weather we once held a conference in a remote centre in North Wales. This was at the time when the Iron Curtain was on the point of coming down in the late 1980s, and we were praying hard for Eastern European countries to be set free from the communist yoke. At one point we found ourselves plunged into darkness as the power went off, giving us an additional sense of identification with Romania, which was suffering power outages as that time. Nothing daunted, the musicians promptly started playing Mozart's Eine kleine Nacht Musik in the dark from memory! Within the year, the profoundly repressive hold President Ceausescu had exercised for so long over the country was broken, and a new day dawned for Romania. Celia Redgate had prepared some pieces for the under-10s to play at this event, based around CS Lewis's tales of Narnia. The imagery and the music are so rich! What a joy to have been able to record them now, many years later. May we likewise draw our strength in and from Him, whatever ordeals we may have to pass through in the course of our pilgrimage.

In this episode, I speak with Michael Ward about his book, After Humanity: A Guide to C.S. Lewis The Abolition of Man.  I think The Abolition of Man is of the most important books in the twentieth century. It addresses important issues that are relevant today — from what it means to be human, reason, passion, and the emotions, to how to think about technology, power, and beauty. It's a short book but can be a bit difficult to understand at times, and Michael Ward does a great service by going through the book line by line and explaining and providing context to make the book easier to follow.  We discuss key themes of The Abolition of Man:  whether beauty and morality are objective or purely subjective education power and authority honor nobility sacrifice for others,  dystopian fiction technology and technocracy  contraception and how man's power over nature ends up being man's power over other men  We also discuss the relationship between the Abolition of Man, Eustace Scrubb, and Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia and the space trilogy, Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, and That Hideous Strength.   Word on Fire Special Offer: After Humanity + Abolition of Man   Biography  Michael Ward is an English literary critic and theologian. He works at the University of Oxford where he is a member of the Faculty of Theology and Religion. He is the author of the award-winning Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis (Oxford University Press) and co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis (Cambridge University Press). Though based at Oxford in his native England, Dr Ward is also employed as Professor of Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, Texas, teaching one course per semester as part of the online MA program in Christian Apologetics.

Life is like smoke. It looks real and solid but when you try to grasp it, it slips through your fingers. And this observation leads Qohelet to the brink of despair at times, because there seems to be nothing that can be counted on in this life “under the sun.” Rather than try to grasp the smoke, the hevel, and watch it slip through your fingers, live life with an open hand. The simple pleasures of life - those are a gift from God. Enjoy them. The relationships you have are a gift from God. These are ways that God is providing for us - enjoy them while you have them. So for Qohelet, the whole duty of man is to enjoy your life such as it is, and to die. But actually there's something more. The whole duty of man is not just to enjoy life and die. The whole duty of man is to fear God and keep his commandments.Sermon Notes: https://www.bible.com/events/4889982822.06.05

Jake and Brett have a rich conversation covering everything from the principle of asceticism, to how true self-actualization is found in Christ, to what it means for us to be living in what George Weigel describes as the ‘Age of Witness'. The hosts challenge us to consider what captures our attention and time, and reveal how giving up good things to pursue something greater can offer us freedom and intimacy in our friendship with Christ.   Guiding Quote:   It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased. - CS Lewis   Key Points   The podcast will be switching to seasons soon to be able to dive deeper into certain themes Asceticism = disciplines that bring about purification of the soul The Purgative Way = renunciation of sin in our lives in order to orient our lives towards the Lord The important distinction between the purgative way and asceticism  What it means to seek a greater good Some common things we are enchanted with that can be a distraction How to find out if you're addicted to something: try giving it up How asceticism can point us towards the condition of our hearts Moving from the age of apologetics to the age of witness and what this means for Christians The importance of good psychology grounded in an accurate understanding of the human person in this new age   Discussion Questions   What stood out to you in this episode? What do you find yourself enchanted by, or in other words what do you spend the most time on? How would pulling back from this allow you to deepen your friendship with Jesus? What feels impossible to give up in my life? Challenge yourself to be free of that thing over the next two weeks. What areas of your life are hard to trust that God will be able to provide for or satisfy?   Resources   Exodus 90 The Utter Relief of Holiness, John Eldredge (book) Redemptor Hominis, Pope John Paul II (encyclical)   Connect with Way of the Heart: Facebook: @wayoftheheartpodcast Instagram: @wayoftheheartpodcast Website: www.wayoftheheartpodcast.com   Never miss out on an episode by hitting the subscribe button right now!
