Lyle Dorsett

Dr. Lyle Dorsett joins me to discuss the life and legacy of C.S. Lewis, who died 50 years ago. Lewis, of course, is the author of the well-known books Mere Christianity and the Chronicles of Narnia novels.

Former curator of the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, which houses a collection of C.S. Lewis’ papers, Dr. Dorsett is author of Seeking the Secret Place: The Spiritual Formation of C. S. Lewis. He also edited The Essential C.S. Lewis and wrote the foreword for George Sayer’s classic biography Jack: A Life of C.S. Lewis.

Click here to read a profile of Lewis written by Dr. Dorsett included in Christian History magazine’s Issue 7. Hunter Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama recently hosted Dr. Dorsett for an address on the life of Lewis, which you can view in the video below.

Dr. Dorsett also spoke at Desiring God’s 2013 National Conference on the topic of Lewis’ life. Audio recordings are available by clicking these links:

Anglicans for Life

Mrs. Georgette Forney joins me to talk about the life-affirming work of Anglicans for Life. We discuss abortion, euthanasia, adoption, abstinence, death, and more. Find out about the important ministry of AFL and how you can also support the sanctity of human life.

I also offer a brief reflection on the foundations of Christian ethics, the first of an occasional series.

“How firm a foundation” (hymn setting). Words by John Rippon.

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say that to you he hath said,
To you that for refuge to Jesus have fled?

“Fear not, I am with thee; O be not dismayed!
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

“The soul that to Jesus hath fled for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell shall endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake.”
