Dr. Wood Lectures Available

In October, the Humanitas Forum on Christianity and Culture hosted a series of lectures by Dr. Ralph C. Wood, Professor of Theology and Literature at Baylor University. The meeting was held at St. George's Episcopal Church in Nashville and the topic was "C. S. Lewis on Love, Desire and the Demonic." The Humanitas Forum has just posted free mp3's on their website of Dr. Wood's lectures, and you can listen to them by clicking here. Outlines of his lectures are also available. Other materials on Lewis by Dr. Wood may be obtained by going here.

Our November Meeting with Rogers

Dr. Jonathan Rogers and Rev. Beckmann

We had a great time last night with Dr. Jonathan Rogers, author of the The World According to Narnia, and the Wilderking trilogy. It was worthwhile having the meeting for all the kids that came out who are big Wilderking fans. They were so excited to meet Jonathan and get their books signed. We had close to 40 people attending and, as usual, Rock Point Books pulled out all the stops, with coffee, wine, cheese, etc.
