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.

The War We Need: Not a Review of ‘Dunkirk’

A film like this holds a hundred lessons, but the next day, I feel one more deeply than the rest: all of life is war . The peace, comfort, and luxury of life in America today are lying to us, lulling us into a spiritual nap, while hell hangs in the balance and heaven makes hell against evil. The realities of World War II are far closer to our actual reality. It may not feel like it, but we are engaged in the greatest war ever fought. In fact, as followers of Christ, it is not hard to see ourselves among the 400,000 at Dunkirk — so close to home, yet surrounded on every side, and praying for deliverance.

A Christian Perspective on Homosexuality | Reasonable Faith

Now in other cases, enforceable laws governing homosexuality might be proposed, and Christians will have to think hard about these on an individual basis. For example, a Christian might not see any good reason why equal opportunity in buying or renting housing should not be guaranteed to persons who are homosexuals. But I could well imagine that a Christian might oppose a bill guaranteeing equal employment opportunities for homosexuals. For some jobs might be inappropriate for such persons. For example, would you want a practicing lesbian to be your daughter’s physical education teacher at school? Would you want your son’s coach to be a homosexual, who would be in the locker room with the boys? I, for one, wouldn’t support a law which could force public schools to hire such individuals.

Reading Is Just the Beginning: Five More Ways to Enjoy God’s Word

The most natural next step after lingering in meditation over God’s words to us is to speak back to him in prayer. We can “pray the Bible” in at least two senses: one stricter, another more substantive. You might want to pray back to God the precise words of the biblical text, quoting back to him exactly what he’s saying to us. But another way to “pray the Bible” is to take in his words, meditate on them, press them to our hearts and make them our own, and then pray back to God, in our own words, in view of what we’ve heard from him in his speaking to us.

Is Public School an Option?

Is public school an option? For Christians who take the Christian worldview seriously and who understand the issues at stake, the answer is increasingly no. The number of Christian parents coming to this conclusion increases each year. We can understand the nostalgia that many Christians hold about the public schools. I spent every minute of my school life from the first grade to high school graduation in a public school. And yet, I saw the ideological transformation of the schools before my own eyes. Long ago, the public schools entered a Brave New World from which no retreat now seems possible.

The Doctrine of Scripture for Apologetics, Part 2

The Bible did not fall from heaven as a finished product placed in the hands of men. Neither was it, like the claims of both Mormonism and Islam, translated from golden plates found in a hillside or cave. Rather, God communicated to human authors in various ways, and guided their writing so that what was written was what God wanted to reveal to them. While 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us what Scripture is, the clearest passage that describes this process is found in 2 Peter 1:16-21.

Let the Women Come to Me: Rejecting Shortcuts to Intimacy with Jesus

Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:38–42)

The online winners’ gallery includes a stunning map-like image of a mouse’s retina, a close-up of a human lens implant, and a teardrop-shaped bundle of DNA being pulled into a brand new cell. A non-scientist might not understand exactly what is being shown in these pictures, but with their bold colors, shapes, and textures, anyone can appreciate their beauty.

Why Belief in God is a Rational Position

As a Christian, the thought of my life without God in it is horrifying. A life without God would mean there would be no transcendent being who is good that I can rely on, who cares about the details of my life, who gives me purpose or that loves me. The idea that an atheist lives with this worldview everyday saddens me. Fortunately, the atheist is wrong. There are many arguments in favor of the existence of God. In this essay, I will present two of those arguments and prove why belief in God is a rational position.

Are Atheists Smarter or Simply More Self-Reliant and Self-Indulgent? | Cold Case Christianity

If believers are so much less intelligent than their non-believing counterparts, why do they repeatedly make wiser choices? As a boy, I can remember an incident that seems to explain this phenomenon. I was not yet a teenager, but I certainly thought I was smarter than most adults, and on this particular day, that included my mother. I can remember arguing with her at a local retail store and repeatedly challenging her (I can’t remember the subject of our argument). For every point she offered, I countered with a stubborn opposing view. We went back and forth for a while as we walked through the store. I stubbornly refused to comply with whatever it was she wanted me to do, offering five or six reasons for rejecting her request. By the time we got to the checkout register, she was exhausted. We continued to argue as we stood there in line, and at one point an older man standing behind us turned to his wife and said, “That boy is too smart for his own good.”

Reading through the [Alleged] Best 100 Science Fiction Books- #26-30 scores and comments

A+ “Certainly one of the best novels ever written,  Speaker for the Dead  is endlessly amazing. Full of rich characters, mystery, strangeness, and beauty, it is a book that has stuck with me for years and only improved upon re-reading it. It is hard to describe just how intensely full of emotion and drama this book is. It features some of the most raw and true-feeling human characters I’ve ever read, while also having some of the most interesting aliens. The plot is beautiful and encourages readers to think about their own humanity in a way only the best science fiction accomplishes. It’s utterly compelling and fascinating.”

Russell Moore commends appointment of Sam Brownback as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom

“Governor Sam Brownback is an outstanding choice to serve as the next Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. This ambassadorship is a key piece in our nation’s responsibility to act on behalf of the persecuted around the world, one that requires a seasoned, respected leader who brings conviction and gravity to the work of this crucial post. Governor Brownback is exactly this kind of leader. While in the Senate, Brownback was heroic on the crisis in Darfur, in dealing with AIDS in Africa and advocating on behalf of persecuted religious minorities. He will be an exceptional Ambassador. He has my prayers and pledge of full cooperation, and I look forward to working with him in the years ahead. We need all the diplomatic and intellectual power we can muster in addressing these critical matters of human rights and global security. I urge the Senate to confirm Governor Brownback without delay.”

The Human Cell

Use these questions to start the conversation with kids! 1. What did you learn about the design of the cell that amazes you? 2. Have you ever thought about how much energy it takes to perform any bodily function? For example, consider all the things that need to happen for you to be able to pick up a pencil. What does that tell you about how much thought God put into creating you? 3. Psalm 139:14 says that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” How can you connect what the Bible says with what you learned about the human cell?

How to Be an Atheist

I’ll admit it: going into Mitch Stokes’ How to Be an Atheist: Why Many Skeptics Aren’t Skeptical Enough , I was skeptical [har, har]. Any book that claims to discuss “how to be x” where “x” is some worldview to which the author does not describe has an uphill battle. After finishing, I have to say that my fears were premature. In this astonishing book, Stokes does well what few even attempt: relational, witty engagement with those with whom one disagrees. The book is a calling for self-described skeptics to examine their own skepticism and see whether they are being skeptical enough . Throughout the book, key tenets of “belief” that most people share are challenged by means of classical and modern skeptical argument. Few aspects of life are left unexamined. Whether it is the belief in other minds, morality, or the origin of the universe, Stokes encourages consistent skepticism on all counts.

Parenting a Full Quiver with a Barren Heart

We often hear far more about delighting in our children than delighting in the Lord, easily directing our focus away from what should be our source of delight (Psalm 37:4). Our lives must revolve around Christ, not our family, for we cannot nourish their souls if we neglect our own. Be filled first with the joyful, sacrificial, delightful love of Christ and let it overflow into the lives of those around us. We will be significantly better parents and spouses when we do this. Relying on anything else to fill our family is putting our faith and hope for transformation in something other than him.

Do the Work of an Evangelist

In his final letter, Paul charges Timothy, his son in the faith, to “do the work of an evangelist” (2 Tim. 4:5). By these words, the aged Apostle establishes the timeless standard for pastoral ministry, not only for young Timothy but for all pastors in every generation and in every place.

Was there really a miracle at Dunkirk? - Premier Christianity

So, how did God answer on the National Day of Prayer? Perhaps we might reflect on the nature of prayer, and consider whether it is not so much 'us asking God to change his mind to be more like ours' but rather 'us asking God to change our minds to be more like his'. Certainly (alongside the providence of the halted tanks, the storm and the calm) what happened at Dunkirk is that many individuals, with extraordinary courage and at huge personal risk, joined together to offer whatever skills and resources they had in a selfless effort to rescue others. And that is the perspective that Christopher Nolan offers in his film Dunkirk .

Do the Laws of Logic Provide Evidence for God? | Reasonable Faith

Here is my question: Why do you not employ the laws of logic as evidence for the existence of God? It seems to me that God (a necessarily existing mind) is the best explanation for the laws of logic in a similar way that he (a necessary personal being of moral perfection) is the best explanation for certain necessary moral truths. Am I mistaken about logic as evidence for the existence of God? Is there a reason the laws of logic should not be used in an argument similar to your argument from objective moral values and duties?

Should We Memorize Catechisms or Scripture?

Should we study catechisms or memorize Scripture? It’s a really good question that comes to us from a listener named Sarah in North Carolina. “Pastor John, I am a stay-at-home mom with three young children. We currently homeschool, and I love the opportunities the kids and I have multiple times a day to talk about the glory of God in our adventures in education. It truly is a joy to point them to Christ every day. My question is this: What are your thoughts on teaching children a catechism? Is it worth the huge amount of time that we would spend on it, or would our time be better served in only memorizing Scripture that points to the same truths?”

BreakPoint: Good News about Sharing the Good News

That sense of longing for God is good news indeed for Christians, who are called to point people to its Source. Jerry Root, who is Assistant Professor of Evangelism and Associate Director of the Institute for Strategic Evangelism at Wheaton College, talks about this good news in a great new article. It’s called “A Broken, Dying World: Why Spiritual Hunger Is Real and How We Can Begin to Meet People Where They Are,” and it’s available on our colleague Ed Stetzer’s blog. Come to BreakPoint.org for the link.

Like Books? Thank a Christian: How the Codex Supports the Canon

It might seem like an oxymoron, but while a large portion of the earliest Christians were illiterate, Christianity itself carved out a niche for itself as one of the most “bookish” religions in the Greco-Roman world.  The sheer quantity of New Testament manuscripts available, with more still being discovered today, testify to this fact and provide a critical clue, for historians and theologians alike, as to how central canonical books were to the community of burgeoning Christians.[1]  So prolific was this literary dissemination, that it becomes clear that a commitment to an authoritative body of Scripture was a very early development in the Christian faith.

Unlock the Riches of Scripture: How I Discover Meaning in the Bible

The aim of reading the Bible is not merely knowing, but also believing and hoping and loving. The whole range of human emotions are possible reactions to the meaning of the Bible. God gave us the Bible not just to inform our minds, but also to transform our hearts — our affections. There is always a more or less fitting way for our affections to be moved by the truth we see.
