Reborn @ Last

August 23rd, 2006

Dear C. S. Lewis Blog Fans, Sorry to have been away so long! It has been an interesting year for Lewis Studies, and I am now just climbing out of a yearlong editorial project, four volumes for Praeger Press, that will contain the best, most original, most compelling scholarship on the life, works, and legacy […]

The Road to Memphis

March 8th, 2006

In two weeks, I will be hosted by Professor Debbie Graham, Director of the Institute for the Arts and Cultural Apologetics at Crichton College in Memphis TN, where I will be delivering two addresses, one in morning chapel (Wed., March 22, 10AM) and one in the evening at the Virgil L. Iles Auditorium (7PM). According […]

Some Quick Takes: A 2nd Viewing of Narnia, A Push Back at the Elitist Left, and an Invitation

January 25th, 2006

A SECOND LOOK I waited almost six weeks, but I went back to see LWW again in the theatres this past weekend. I surprised by how much more I enjoyed it without my critical lenses on–focusing on virtues rather than shortcomings. I was also surprised by how many people were there–such a healthy crowd, a […]

King Kong’s Kolossal Kinetic Kollapse

December 18th, 2005

I know. There is no reason why a review of “King Kong” should appear on a page dedicated to C S Lewis, except that it provides some useful comparisons between two kinds of film experiences, the kind offered by Andrew Adamson, and the kind provided by Peter Jackson. I saw all 3 hr. and 8 […]

Narnia’s Wild Ride Needs Deeper Magic

December 13th, 2005

I just finished taping yesterday an appearance on Frank Beckmann’s morning drive show on WJR Detroit, asking me about the movie and its reception, and suggesting I react to the local newspaper’s demurring review of the movie as “predictable” and “bloodless.” Frank is a Lewis fan, who loved the movie, and found the 67m take […]

It’s Not a Tame Wardrobe: 2 Views & They’re Both Mine

December 8th, 2005

View One: This is a Fantastic Film I write first on behalf of the general viewer. Let’s say I read Lion as a child and have since read it to my kids, too–in the “original” order, by just dumb luck. I’m no scholar. I don’t know anything about Lewis’s childhood or Mrs. Moore or Greek […]

The Countdown: Narnia Unveiled

December 2nd, 2005

One week to go, and the press is being unusually cooperative and respectful of the incoming cultural missile known as Andrew Adamson’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. (I mean “the press” excluding The New York Times and the The New Yorker–and all the non-Rupert Murdoch newspapers in London and Sydney, of course.) Today’s […]

Happy Birthday, Jack!

November 29th, 2005

I think of writers as companions, their books as landscapes that we traverse together. With some I care not even to embark; among others I would walk only a little way. And then there are those whose company is so joyful, edifying, and challenging that the journey is not long enough to satisfy me or […]

So the Gloves Come Off: The New Yorker and New York Times Tackle Narnia

November 19th, 2005

No surprise here, but New York interlektuls (as Flannery O’Connor called them) don’t like Lewis, but, what’s more, they don’t like anyone else liking him either. It is hard to tell which may be worse, Lewis or we, his too numerous admirers. So–a doleful warning is to be issued by New York media to all […]

Always Christmas and Never Winter: Lewis in Tampa

November 12th, 2005

Here is the next Narnia on Tour stop–and my last formal Borders event of the year. The very hospitable and dynamic Tampa Covenant Church is my kind host, as they have been for the previous two years. A Wednesday church event occurred last night, “Narnia and Us: The Christian Imagination of C. S. Lewis, and […]
