The Kindlings Muse on Fairy Tales, L’Engle, Tolkien, Lewis, and “Auralia’s Colors”

Did you miss The Kindlings Muse on Monday night? Now you can listen in! The Kindlings podcast is here!

From The Kindlings Muse site:

Madeleine L’Engle, CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien each embraced the Christian faith and found in their imaginative fantasy a way to explore and understand it.

Yet to this day, some Christians see no place for fantasy literature. Tonight’s subject is Fantasy & Myth: Christian Contributions & Consumption.

We explore the subject with author & film critic Jeffrey Overstreet whose most recent book Auralia’s Colors is a work of fantasy; Greg Wright, Senior Editor of HollywoodJesus.com, author of Tolkien in Perspective: Sifting the Gold from the Glitter and Peter Jackson in Perspective: The Power Behind Cinema’s The Lord of the Rings; and Jenny Spohr producer of The Kindlings Muse.

In other news… Dick Staub, Jenny Spohr, Greg Wright and I are going to be recording monthly film podcasts and providing them for you, free of charge, soon. So stay tuned! The first edition is already in the bag.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
