From Belfast to Narnia: The Life and Faith of C.S. Lewis

Volume XX of Tremendous Leadership's Life-Changing Classic Series Clive Staples Lewis, better known as “Jack” to his friends and family, made only a few trips outside of his homeland, Great Britain, and yet today he is known globally as one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. Through his timeless writings, he has touched and moved the lives of countless individuals in his time and beyond. In this brief introduction to his life and works you will uncover what inspired him, what drove him and what experiences shaped the life of this extraordinary writer, theologian and friend of God. The C.S. Lewis Institute was founded in 1976.  In the legacy of C.S. Lewis, we develop disciples of Jesus Christ who will articulate, defend, share and live their faith in public and personal life. We’re not a C.S. Lewis fan club, but rather hope to raise up thousands like Lewis who sought to live wholeheartedly as a disciple of Jesus Christ in all areas of life.    Please note that the ebook option is a PDF ebook that is readable on any device that supports the PDF format.

N.T. Wright Answers 5 of Life's Biggest Questions - The Veritas Forum

New Testament theologian N.T. Wright is no stranger to wrestling with questions of cosmic weight. Author of over 30 books, his writing contextualizes Christian thought alongside the broader scope of human history. Earlier this year, we hosted Wright at a Veritas Forum at the University of Cincinnati, where he dialogued with philosophy professor Heidi Lene Maibom. …

How Do You Motivate People to Care about Apologetics? Part 2

Churches need to be reminded of why they are here. Evangelism and apologetics, which is the handmaiden to evangelism, are not optional activities. They are at the very core of our mission, which is to reach our world with the gospel. That’s why Jesus spelled it out so clearly: to go into all the world (including next door or down the hallway) to reach everyone we can for him (Matthew 20:18-20). This Great Commission wasn’t one choice among many options. It’s what we’re here to do.

The Prayers You Need Most Are Not Your Own

As if that were not grace enough, the Holy Spirit is also present, on speakerphone, as it were. He’s calling directly from our hearts, where he not only knows our every need more intimately than do we ourselves, but he also gazes into the depths of the Father’s will with complete clarity. Since all of his requests are perfectly in line with that will, and everything for which he asks echoes the requests of the beloved Son, his continual requests are continually granted.

How God Sent His Word to An Iraqi Interpreter

And sure enough, God began profoundly changing my father’s heart. My family noticed a huge difference when he returned from prison. He became a hard worker, less selfish and an overall happier man who always had a smile on his face. As an example, one week after his release, my father and I went shopping for clothes. We ran into a man wearing tattered clothing who was obviously homeless. My father had compassion for this man and, stripping down to his underwear, gave away the clothes he was wearing. He said, “He needs these clothes more than I do.” I stood in shock because of his generosity. I knew then that my father’s life had been forever changed.

Interview with Carl Trueman on Ulrich Zwingli - Westminster Theological Seminary

Trueman: Ulrich Zwingli was the first great reformer of the city of Zürich in Switzerland. He was born on New Year’s Day in 1484, just a few weeks after Martin Luther. So they were the same age, but in some ways, they came from different worlds. Luther was a medieval man; he trained in a medieval university, medieval curriculum, as a monk, medieval calling. Zwingli was a humanist. He grew up under the tutelage of those who are profoundly influenced by humanism, and specifically by Erasmus. He became a Catholic priest and from 1518 onwards he was a minister in Zürich, where he came to the conviction that the city as a whole, public city, city life, as well as church life, needed to be reformed in accordance with the word of God. His move to Reformation was, I think, more existential than Luther’s. We don’t hear in Zwingli about this great wrestling with his personal sin; but he came to a conviction that life as a whole was to be regulated by the Word of God.

How Not to Become a Christian Chihuahua | Cold Case Christianity

So, the questions I have for myself are simply these: Am I the Chihuahua in the room? Am I the kind of person who arrogantly thinks he has all the answers? Do I selectively cloister myself with like-minded believers? Do I obnoxiously defend what I believe with ruthless animosity? Am I more of a nuisance than a blessing? Have I elevated my pet theological positions to the level of essential Christian doctrine, even when they are non-essential issues? In the many years that I owned a Chihuahua, my friends tolerated her with patience. In fact, they usually ignored her incessant barking and posturing as they tried their best to carry on a conversation while the silly little dog was barking in the background. That’s what we do with barking Chihuahuas; we try to ignore them and carry on as though they weren’t the obnoxious little dogs they actually are. I don’t want people to feel that way about me. Sadly, I am sure there have been many times when I was the kind of nuisance people could easily ignore.  So I continue to ask these questions about my own behavior and attitude as I try my best to avoid becoming a Christian Chihuahua.

Why Apologetics is Essential to Being a Pastor

That may sound like a bold statement but stick with me. The most common title for clergy is that of pastor (at least within protestant traditions). What is a pastor? The basic meaning of a pastor is not one who performs religious services but that of a shepherd. As a profession, ministers have adopted the shepherd as the primary image for what we do.

When God Seems Silent

All of God’s saints, if allowed to live long enough, are led into the lonely, disorienting, weary wilderness. And while there, we lament. And since laments are often better sung than said, it’s always been the poets and songwriters who help us most.

Passive Christianity Is Dead Christianity

Second, Jesus calls us to believe (Mark 1:15; 9:23). For Jesus, believing is never mere intellectual assent to a creed. It always implies and requires action. James’s statement that faith without works is dead is backed up by the entire Bible. If you believe God, you will do what he says (Matthew 7:21; John 14:15).

Why I Love the Evening Service (And You Can Too)

Interesting thoughts. There are possibly some benefits to a Sunday evening service depending on the church and circumstances. I’m glad, though, that you fell short of saying it is required by scripture. So many people believe that because of their traditions. But Sunday evening services didn’t even start until the invention of electric lighting. Churches saw it as a way to use new technology to bring people into the church. They would sometimes be the only place that had lighting in the community, and they would use it to invite people in. The majority of people don’t know that, and believe that having an evening service is just the way it always was. In fact, though, the early Church wasn’t even services in a church building at all. They mostly met in homes and studied God’s Word, fellowshipped, and worshipped in small group communities. Of course, they eventually grew to become bigger churches that we know today. But there is something to be said about the smaller group setting. If used properly, it helps nurture community and encourages greater discussion of the Bible, helping people understand it beyond Sunday morning sermons.

Destroy Her with Discontent

Make her discontent, convince her that she’s not worth anything, and then drive her into all kinds of self-destructive tendencies. Enslave her to beauty, leaving her discontent to hold the whip that makes her run. And if you can drive her into a profound self-absorption and pride, then you will be able to sit back and feel satisfied with your work. The irony is that the silly women never seem to notice that whether they obsess over their own beauty or intentionally harm themselves, it’s all the same to us. We win either way.

Living Under Authority

As I read the scriptures, particularly the New Testament, there is a theme that recurs again and again regarding the Christian’s willingness to be in submission to various types of authority. Given the rebellious spirit of our age, that frightens me. It’s all too easy for us to get caught up in an attitude that will bring us into open defiance of the authority of God.

‘To the Bone’ Is Big on Anorexia and Lean on Healing

I love those!” Then she says, “Wait—that sounded terrible.” You agree, but both of you laugh, because the pleasure these stories afford is complicated: Is it morbid fascination? Comforting reassurance of one’s basic wellness in the face of another’s extreme sickness? Cautionary tale? Or—in a twisted sense—instructional and aspirational?

The Rise of the Nons: Protestants Keep Ditching Denominations

With the number of Americans identifying as Southern Baptists dropping from 8 percent to 3 percent since the year 2000, researchers stated, “it may also be those who may actually attend an official Southern Baptist church increasingly identify as just ‘Baptist’ rather than as Southern Baptist, specifically.”

Marriage Is Not the Mission

Paul reminds us that to live is Christ, to die is gain (Philippians 1:21). To live is not to marry. To live is not to raise children. To live is not to find “the one.” To live is Jesus Christ. In Philippians 1:23, Paul was hard pressed between the thought of continuing to live on mission (to live) and being with Christ (to die).

Why Does God Allow Evil? Author Interview from Groundbreaking Book

JONES : The biggest lack in the typical discussion regarding “why does God allow evil?” is a focus on the eternal. I’ve read a lot of books on the subject and most of them barely nod at eternity playing a part in our answering the question. But C.S. Lewis was right: “Scripture and tradition habitually put the joys of heaven into the scale against the sufferings of earth, and no solution of the problem of pain that does not do so can be called a Christian one.” But it is much more than answering the problem of evil,a failure to understand the glory that awaits the Christian for eternity hurts Christians in many other ways. That’s why I spend three chapters on eternity in my book. We need to do Colossians 3:1-4!

Glorifying God in Unshakable Grief

Pastor John, here’s a heavy email we recently received from a woman who prefers that her name not be used online. “Dear Pastor John, my brother-in-law recently passed away at age 32 in a tragic accident. We stood by his bedside for two months, hopeful that he would recover, but now recognize that God’s will was to take him home to heaven. We rejoice that he was in Christ and can now see him face to face. That is awesome. Yet there is so much sorrow left behind. The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 3 that there are appropriate times for different seasons. Many days my husband and I feel a struggle to get out of bed. We struggle to enjoy blessings like the joys our baby boy brings because they remind us of our dear brother that we are deeply grieving. What encouragement does the Bible give for those who are mourning? How do we lift each other up during these dark days? How do we mourn the death of a loved one in a God-honoring way? Your podcasts are such a blessing to our family, especially during this time.”

Perspective | The death of reading is threatening the soul

When asked about his secret to success, Warren Buffett pointed to a stack of books and said, “Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will…” Charles Chu, who quoted Buffett on the Quartz website, acknowledges that 500 pages a day is beyond reach for all but a few people. Nevertheless, neuroscience proves what each of these busy people have found: it actually takes less energy to focus intently than to zip from task to task. After an hour of contemplation, or deep reading, a person ends up less tired and less neurochemically depleted, thus more able to tackle mental challenges.

Objections to Objective Morality

As I mentioned earlier, in our “post-truth” society it is inevitable that a Christian will run into one of these objections. As Christians, we have to be prepared to answer these objections and to show that belief in God is rational and reasoned (1 Peter 3:15). What I have seen in dealing with the students in my class who opposed objective morality is that it is more of an emotional problem. As I mentioned in objection three, the students in my class did not want objective morality to exist because it would have to demand a change in their way if living. Hopefully, after reading this, you will be prepared to give a defense of one of the most relatable and fundamental arguments for the existence of God.

41 Science and Theology | Reasonable Faith

When it came to the creation of the Universe, God just wasn’t necessary. This is the conclusion renowned English physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking has made in his latest book with Leonard Mlodinow, The Grand Design. “It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going,” Hawking writes. According to Hawking, the big bang was a natural event that would have happened without the help or involvement of God. Thus, Hawking and Mlodinow’s new book has made a big bang among laypeople. But what about these authors’ conclusions? How accurate are they? William Lane Craig, noted Christian philosopher and theologian, responds to Hawking and Mlodinow’s new book.

Do atheists have a lower divorce rate than Christians?

We’re probably not going to keep our low divorce rate unless we start to get serious about learning how to discuss moral issues practically, using evidence. Take premarital sex as an example. I’ve never been in a church where they explained the hormones that are released during sex that cause you to bond to the person you’re having sex with. You would have to look in books or listen to lectures in order to understand the problem with having sex with someone you are not committed to – how it causes you to hold back your emotions for fear of a break-up. The church doesn’t have much to say about the social effects of single motherhood by choice or the effects of gay parenting on children. Nor do they have any positive vision to offer men about how they can serve God by marrying carefully. Now is probably a good time to start thinking deeply about how to have a good relationship, how to have a good marriage, how to raise children who will make a difference.

What Do Greek Scholars Think of the Watchtower Society's New World Translation of the Bible?

In their small book The Facts on Jehovah's Witnesses , authors John Ankerberg and John Weldon contend that "Greek scholars, Christian and non-Christian universally reject..." 1 the New World Translation (NWT) of the Bible used by Jehovah's Witnesses. One such example they offer is the late Dr. Julius Mantey.  As the authors explain: "Mantey was one of the leading Greek scholars in the world.  He was author of the Hellenistic Greek Reader and coauthor, with H.E. Dana, of A Manual Grammar of the Greek New Testament .  Not only did he reject the NWT , he publicly demanded that the Society stop misquoting his Grammar to support it." 2 Mantey wrote: "I have never read any New Testament so badly translated as The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scripture s.  In fact, it is not their translation at all.  Rather, it is a distortion of the New Testament.  The translators used what J.B. Rotherham has translated in 1893, in modern speech, and changed the readings in scores of passages to state what Jehovah's Witnesses believe and teach.

The Surprising Way You Can Actually Change the World

When we go into a mission trip with a to-do list instead of a genuine love for people—we’ll leave disappointed. Most walls need another coat of paint. Most people aren’t free from addictions in a week. Most community or cultural issues are so deeply rooted that it could take years to see transformation. But when we paint and build and connect and serve in a way that lets our lives reflect Jesus, we can begin to have the type of impact we hope for. We might not change the world, but we may be lucky enough to love someone well and receive something in return.

Is Euthanasia a Biblical Solution to Terminal Illness or Suffering?

Death is an enemy, an enemy that only Jesus Christ can and will destroy ( 1 Corinthians 15:26 ). If death cannot be avoided—and it cannot—many of us would like some control over how and when it happens. After all, we as adults do not like relinquishing the independence we spent our entire lives acquiring! As people around the world grapple with the issue of whether euthanasia (“mercy killing”) and physician-assisted suicide should be legal, it is the desire to retain control over our lives until the end that motivates many to push for a legal “right to die” on their own terms. When we realize that this is tantamount to asking for murder-on-demand, the sanitized sounding word euthanasia takes on its true colors.
