“Surprised by Joy”: Apologetics and the Imagination – Given by Linny Dey

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-nrbu5-94e321

A lecture given by Linny Dey at Southborough L’Abri on July 6th, 2018. For more information, visit www.labri.org/mass and for more L’Abri lectures, visit the L’Abri Ideas Library.

 

While “honest answers to honest questions” are still helpful for some, there are fewer questioners and fewer people today who believe that there is one answer that fits all.  If Christianity is the truth which all people need, Christians need to consider ways other than reasoned argument to make that truth clear.  This lecture will look at how understanding the significance of the imagination and our imaginative vision of reality can be an aid in developing a different kind of apologetics.  We’ll look at, among other things, how the great thinker C.S. Lewis’s conversion to Christianity, his being “surprised by joy”, was primarily a conversion of his imagination.

A lecture given by Sarah Chestnut at Southborough L’Abri on June 22nd, 2018. For more information, visit www.labri.org/mass and for more L’Abri lectures, visit the L’Abri Ideas Library.

Creative Work is Work (Part 2): What is (and isn’t) Artistic Inspiration?

This lecture will explore conceptions – and misconceptions – about artistic inspiration and experiences of transcendence in the arts, considering questions such as, “Where do ideas come from? Is there something—or someone—other than me involved in the creative process? What is meant by having a ‘transcendent experience’ with a piece of art? What are we after when we engage with art?”

“Happy Are Those”: The Bible’s Vision of Happiness and the Obedient Life – Joshua Chestnut

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-7pfh4-938051

 A lecture given by Joshua Chestnut at Southborough L’Abri on June 16th 2018,  Part 2 of 3 for our Summer Seminar: “A Flash of Eternity: Happiness, Joy and the Good Life”

“Happy Are Those”: The Bible’s Vision of Happiness and the Obedient Life

Part of the paradox of modern life is that while everyone claims to want happiness, few if any of us have found it. With so many competing and ultimately self-serving views of happiness on the market, it’s understandable why some Christians have given up on it, but this lecture will outline the unique take that the Bible has on human happiness and the good life.
