    A New Year's Encouragement

    A New Year's Encouragement

    #14 - Welcome back to the show!  After a very long break, I wanted to share some encouragement for the year ahead, and provide a bit of a different perspective on the idea of a "New Year".

    C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man, Chapter 1

    C.S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man, Chapter 1

    #13 - Welcome back to the show!  Today, we are diving into a great (and very short) book by one of the world's greatest writers of all time, C.S. Lewis!  Not only was he a great thinker on relevant world issues, but he was also an influential theologian who helped Christians frame spiritual and philosophical issues more clearly.  
    Lewis's The Abolition of Man is essentially a "defense of universal values", and it's a formidable argument against relativistic thinking.  It goes very deep, so put on your thinking caps and buckle up for a fun ride!
    Here is a link to this book on Amazon.com:
    The Abolition of Man
    Today we are discussing only chapter one, but come back next time for chapter 2 of The Abolition of Man!

Highly recommend

Biblical wisdom that parents can listen to with their young children. So grateful for a resource such as this. Jonah is well-spoken, wise beyond his years, and a great influence for the youth of today. I highly recommend this podcast to all parents.
