TheologyNetwork's Table Talk podcasts are always worth listening to, and the latest one is no exception. Mike Reeves interviews Michael Ward about C.S.Lewis and the 7-fold mediæval cosmology which ran through his literature - including the Chronicles of Narnia. It's not a hidden key as it was first billed by some, although it does explain some otherwise seemingly out-of-place inclusions in the novels. It is a fascinating exploration of Lewis' ability to invite us to breathe in the air of a meaning-drenched universe, rather than just accepting our culture's take on things. And if you're just a fan of the Chronicles, it'll be interesting to hear something of Lewis' influences in each one. The two Michaels also reflect on some of Lewis' challenges for the Church and our culture. Listen here.
