A Journey into Unfamiliar Territories – Pondering Principles–Dr. K. Alan Snyder


Regular readers of my blog know that I am in the process of developing a course at my church on C. S. Lewis’s “Ransom Trilogy.” Although I’ve taught the third in the series a number of times, I’ve never attempted to cover all three, but I’m looking forward to helping tell Lewis’s tale to those who are unaware of it and who don’t know the underlying themes that Lewis explores.

Christ in the Multiverse: An Interview with David Williams | James McGrath


My choice to have Lewis open my chapters as I explored the impacts of this cosmology on Christian faith was more reflective of my personal journey than any other rationale.  Clive Staples Lewis is an old friend, my first place of entry into the world of fantasy fiction.  My mom was a linguist by training, and had me reading at an absurdly early age.  I was five (five!) when I read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe alone in my room in Nairobi, and it was a peculiar experience.  Perhaps it’s a factor of a child’s imagination, but my memory of it isn’t so much of sitting and reading, but of physically being in Narnia.  Snow underfoot, the warmth of the fire in a beaver’s den, the hard terrible cold of a stone slab.  Multiverse theology is certainly implied by storytelling that engages with both faith and the possibility of other realms of being, but it goes far deeper than the green fields of Narnia.

This Mysterious Maker of the World–C.S. Lewis


The Gospels declare that this mysterious maker of the world has visited His world in person. The most that any religious prophet has said was that he was the true servant of such a being. But the Creator was present in the daily life of the Roman Empire–that is something unlike anything else in nature. It is the one great startling statement that man has made since he spoke his first articulate word. It makes dust and nonsense of comparative religion.
