Mike Licona’s Musings

by Max Andrews

Mike Licona has started a Vimeo series, which comes out every few weeks or so with little known and random facts about biblical history.  For instance, his first was on the history of the bird (not that bird but the… bird).  His latest refers to the genealogies of Jesus.  Please follow and benefit from his other videos he has added to his channel.

CS Lewis’ ‘The Screwtape Letters’ Audio

by Max Andrews

I originally found this video shared on Justin Taylor’s blog at The Gospel Coalition.  This video has John Cleese reading the book, which is very Germane and is, oh, classical?

Then there is, which absolutely recommend, Screwtape.  This was a project overseen by Douglas Gresham, Lewis’ step-son, whom I have had the privilege of meeting.  This version of the letters is more Rock and Roll, heavy, and real.  Please watch the first video posted on their site (you’ll also see Gresham in his Tazmanian naval sweater, which I envy).

I just finished a paper on Lewis’ eudaimonistic ethic and worked quite a bit in Screwtape.  Enjoy.
