AAJ Podcast: C.S. Lewis Blog (Zach Kincaid)

February 9, 2016

The C.S. Lewis Minute blog began back in late 2011 as a way for me to share my renewed interest in reading books by C.S. Lewis. This eventual lead to interviewing a variety of book authors and another place online to combine everything. EssentialCSLewis.com now supersedes this blog, but because a lot of people are still following it, I occasionally post here to remind those of what’s available there. 


Lewis Blog (Zach 2016)From my All About Jack Podcast – Did you know there is an official website for C.S. Lewis? If you’ve only casually stop by it then you may have thought its sole purpose was to sell books from him. While that IS the main purpose, if you look carefully you’ll see there’s a special blog available through the site that features a lot of interesting articles. So, to help you learn about this part of the site Zach Kincaid is my guest to discuss it, as well as some about the official Lewis group on Facebook.

Annotated Screwtape LettersFrom my All About Jack Podcast – Back in 2014 I first released this interview with Paul McCusker about The Screwtape Letters: Annotated Edition that had only been release a few months before that show was posted. I had yet to share this conversation again since moving my podcast hosting to Podbean, so it has been unavailable for awhile. This year (2016) is the 75th  anniversary of the letters first appearing in a small church publication before they came out in book form in the UK in 1942. So, it seem especially important to share interview again because of this fact. Learn how Paul became involved in this project and what information you will and won’t see in it.

Top 5 Questionable Lewis Quotes for 2015 (Preview)

January 2, 2016

The C.S. Lewis Minute blog began back in late 2011 as a way for me to share my renewed interest in reading books by C.S. Lewis. This eventual lead to interviewing a variety of book authors and another place online to combine everything. EssentialCSLewis.com now supersedes this blog, but because a lot of people are still following it, I occasionally post here to remind those of what’s available there. 


From my Essential C.S. Lewis Site – The following is the introduction to an article I posted that I wanted make sure you were aware of. I’ve been doing a series of articles exploring questionable quotations credited to C.S. Lewis. So far I’ve done sixteen pieces, each examining a different quotation. For this summary piece I decided to highlight the five most popular posts (determined by most viewed on my site). Again, this is only the introduction, so be sure to follow the link to read the rest of it.

 


It’s no secret that not every quote attributed to C.S. Lewis found online (and sometimes even in books) is actually something he wrote. While I’ve been exploring this issue the last few years, it was only about four months ago that I began to devote individual posts to questionable quotations. While I’ve only examined sixteen expressions so far (and it looks like there are at least twice as many more), I felt the start of the new year was a good time to highlight the most popular sayings up to this point (determined by most views on my site).

If you’ve read any of my previous posts on this issue then you know I’ve come up with three categories for the results of my investigation. If not, then be sure to read my INTRODUCTION to Confirming C.S. Lewis Quotations article.

What follows are each of the five most popular questionable quotations along with the main article about that expression. One component not found here, but available in most of the original posts, is the section sharing the closest material Lewis did write related to the topic. You can follow the link (in the title of the quote) to read the original post. Finally, for a complete list of questionable quotations that is updated as I add a new article can be found series overview page.
