As previously noted this blog has been superseded by another site I’ve created that now contains all the new material I do related to Lewis. However, from time-to-time I duplicate a post here (or provide a preview of it) because there are so many signed up to receive notification of news post here.
Those who falsely claim that C.S. Lewis didn’t like women have missed the gender than he secretly hated: MALES! That’s correct, hidden very deep within the writings of C.S. Lewis you will discover a hatred that is so concealed that only my carefully skilled abilities have been able to uncover the shocking truth.
I don’t expect you to accept my word on this delicate matter…so, I’ll reveal what my findings have been so far (undoubtedly there is more yet to be discovered). What follows is a list of characters Lewis created along with a short explanation as to why it proves my point.
Edmund Pevensie – in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Edmund is the villainous traitor whose deeds result in the death of Aslan.
From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – The following podcast is done in honor of Dr. Christopher Mitchell who passed away unexpectedly on July 10, 2014. It’s been often expressed by those mourning the loss of a loved one or close friend that they wished they had shared their reflective remarks to the person before they had died. While I don’t if the following individuals sharing their thoughts about Chris didn’t say them to him, they are nevertheless touching words about someone who impacted the lives of many people around the world. Some may not recognize Chris’s name, that’s likely because he was a humble person who preferred focusing on encouraging others than spending time trying to make a name for himself.
From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – As this podcast episode is being repeated (with a new introduction), news of the death of Dr. Christopher Mitchell is less than a week old. This interview features Chris from a chat William O’Flaherty had with him in 2012 while he was still the Director of the Marion E. Wade Center. In 2013 he moved to teach at Biola University. While this conversation focuses mostly on the Wade, Chris also shares some of his favorite books by and about Lewis.
As most of you are aware this blog is infrequently updated because I now run a newer site called EssentialCSLewis.com (and all the posts here are NOW always there).

From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – As this podcast episode is releasing the latest issue of a publication called Sehnsucht is shipping soon.

From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – On my Resource Spotlight section at EssentialCSLewis.com I recently highlighted three videos from the C.S. Lewis Symposium that were filmed last year and just uploaded to YouTube. I had the chance to speak with Peter Byrom from Christian Evidence about these videos. Peter did the editing of them and gives a short summary of each, along with other details related to the videos. These three videos features a lecture by Dr. Alister McGrath, Dr. Malcolm Guite and panel discussion lead by Dr. Michael Ward.
From my All About Jack: A C.S. Lewis Podcast page – Many think of Mere Christianity just as single book that is great at helping you understand and defend the faith. However, not only was it originally released as three different books and four series of radio talks, but there are many other fascinating behind the scenes details that you can learn from C.S. Lewis & Mere Christianity: The Crisis That Created a Classic. This book by Paul McCusker is just being released. Previously I’ve had Paul on the show discussing a radio drama (C.S. Lewis at War) and The Screwtape Letters: Annotated Edition (see links before for those shows).
