A third episode on That Hideous Strength.
"Man, in short, is to storm the heavens and overthrow the gods, or even to become a god himself. There is nothing outrageously improbable in such a conspiracy. Indeed, at a moment when a single atomic bomb – of a type already pronounced “obsolete” – has just blown probably three hundred thousand people to fragments, it sounds all too topical. Plenty of people in our age do entertain the monstrous dreams of power that Mr. Lewis attributes to his characters, and we are within sight of the time when such dreams will be realisable."--From a review of _That Hideous Strength _by George Orwell
In our final episode on C. S. Lewis's weird book, our heroes ponder modernism, post modernism, and the demise of western civilization itself!!!!!!!!!
Special thanks again to our guest star for this series, Pastor Stephen Baker, dean of the most excellent Clearnote Pastor's College.
What is The Bookening?
3 guys—a pastor, a scholar, and their gleeful provocateur—discuss the great books. We take God and literature seriously—but the second one not overly so.
