Liberal Theology In The Weimar Era: Schleiermacher And The Question Of Religious Subjectivity In The Methodenstreit Between Georg Wobbermin And Karl Barth, Brent Hege 2010 Butler University

Liberal Theology In The Weimar Era: Schleiermacher And The Question Of Religious Subjectivity In The Methodenstreit Between Georg Wobbermin And Karl Barth, Brent Hege

Brent A. R. Hege

Recent historical studies of liberal theology in the Weimar era have called into question the popular thesis of liberal theology's sudden demise and disappearance coincident with the First World War and the publication of Karl Barth's Römerbrief. Historians of this period of theology are rediscovering a vibrant liberal theology active well into the 1920s and even into the 1930s. One of these liberal theologians, Georg Wobbermin, was particularly active in this period, and his work serves as an example of a constructive liberal theology pursued in the midst of dialectical theology's rise to prominence on the German-speaking ...


The Awesome Responsibility Of Leadership (Grand Rapids, Mi), C. William Pollard 2010 Seattle Pacific University

The Awesome Responsibility Of Leadership (Grand Rapids, Mi), C. William Pollard

C. William Pollard Papers

Speaking at the Acton Institute (Grand Rapids, MI), Pollard contends that leadership must be person-centered and oriented to cultivating a "moral community for the development of human character."


Islam, Globalization, And Freedom Of Expression, Muhammad Daiyabu Hassan 2010 Ahmadu Bello University

Islam, Globalization, And Freedom Of Expression, Muhammad Daiyabu Hassan

Journal of Global Initiatives: Policy, Pedagogy, Perspective

The exercise of freedom of expression by a segment of the secular establishment, mainly among members of the literary and intellectual elite in the West, in relation to Islam, constitutes a major obstacle in the search for common grounds between the Islamic world and the West. Due to historical factors, the church seems to have assented to the continuous secular attacks on Christianity. Some examples in this regard are Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code and Martins Scorsese's film adaptation of Nikos Kazanstzaki's The Last Temptation of Christ. To this segment of Western secular cultural thinkers, nothing is ...

Aesthetics Vs. Anesthesia: C.S. Lewis On The Purpose Of Art, Charlie W. Starr 2010 Kentucky Christian University

Aesthetics Vs. Anesthesia: C.S. Lewis On The Purpose Of Art, Charlie W. Starr

Inklings Forever

Contemporary Christian culture does not know what art is for. C.S. Lewis did. First of all, he understood that Christians should not try to change culture by turning art into propaganda. The first purpose of art is not to be didactic but to be beautiful and provide pleasure and play. It may have secondary purposes – to inspire, to draw us to God – but art cannot achieve these purposes without achieving the first. Secondly, Lewis knew that we should not simply analyze art for its philosophical underpinnings. Though Lewis recognized the need for worldview analysis, this approach devalues play and ...


God Is Impartial: Frankenstein And Macdonald, Miho Yamaguchi 2010 Kurume University, Japan

God Is Impartial: Frankenstein And Macdonald, Miho Yamaguchi

Inklings Forever

In George MacDonald’s David Elginbrod, a criminal named Funkelstein exercises his influence on a young woman and makes her an accessory to his crime. I thought that the name sounded somewhat similar to “Frankenstein” so I examined Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to see if there was any connection. Consequently, I discovered that some episodes and arguments in the story were taken up by MacDonald and reflected in David Elginbrod and also in his Wingfold trilogy. It appears that MacDonald, having read Frankenstein, tried to answer the cries of despair uttered by Frankenstein’s monster – the cries that seem to ...

Truth And Imagination In Poetic Diction: Owen Barfield And C.S. Lewis's Great War, Stephen Margtheim 2010 Baylor University

Truth And Imagination In Poetic Diction: Owen Barfield And C.S. Lewis's Great War, Stephen Margtheim

Inklings Forever

Owen Barfield’s position in his “Great War” with C.S. Lewis holds that the imagination can both perceive and create truth via poetry. Contrarily, Lewis’s position in the “war,” which took place during the 1920s before his conversion to Christianity, holds that the imagination can in no way create truth. This paper explicates Barfield’s position and arguments as well as Lewis’s objections in order to demonstrate how Barfield is victorious in the war. I examine Barfield’s understanding of the natures of imagination and truth as seen in Poetic Diction, and subsequently turn to his arguments ...


Sucking Life: The Principle Of Hell In C.S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters, Kimberly Moore-Jumonville 2010 Spring Arbor University

Sucking Life: The Principle Of Hell In C.S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters, Kimberly Moore-Jumonville

Inklings Forever

Screwtape’s training of Wormwood in the art of deception exposes the tempters’ desire to consume “the other” completely into the self. This insatiable appetite to devour is revealed to be the ruling principle of Hell, where one must eat or be eaten. As competitors, Screwtape and Wormwood can never comprehend the reality of Heaven, which exists by the opposite principle. If the rule of Hell is to consume the other, the rule of Heaven is to serve and celebrate the other. In The Screwtape Letters C.S. Lewis succeeds in depicting the choice to succumb to appetite or submit ...


Through The Lens Of The Four Loves: The Concept Of Love In The Great Divorce, Paulette Sauders 2010 Grace College

Through The Lens Of The Four Loves: The Concept Of Love In The Great Divorce, Paulette Sauders

Inklings Forever

Even though C.S. Lewis wrote his non-fiction book, The Four Loves, later than his fiction, I content that he had been using the concepts of love that he finally wrote about in that book to shape his characters in all of his fiction. I will be examining his fictional The Great Divorce to discover which characters personify the kinds of love and their perversions discussed in The Four Loves as a way to better understand the novel as well as Lewis’s perceptions of love.


Old Macdonald Had A Farm: An Exploration Of Animal Literature And Its Subtext Through The Theology Of George Macdonald, Laura Stanifer 2010 Indiana University - Kokomo

Old Macdonald Had A Farm: An Exploration Of Animal Literature And Its Subtext Through The Theology Of George Macdonald, Laura Stanifer

Inklings Forever

Tales all the way from Grimms’ The Frog Princess to C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia all tell us that there is more subtext to animals in literature than we realize. They can represent the meaning of family, as in the werewolves in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, or the character of our soul, as in the Harry Potter series. I will touch on each of these elements while centering on George MacDonald’s view of animals as representing one of God’s miracles, amazingly similar to humans in their feeble nature and yet just as capable of being redeemed ...


Owen Barfield: Un-Regressed Pilgrim, Edwin Woodruff Tait 2010 Huntington University

Owen Barfield: Un-Regressed Pilgrim, Edwin Woodruff Tait

Inklings Forever

This paper will use C.S. Lewis’s The Pilgrim’s Regress to compare Lewis’s understanding of the spiritual life with that of Own Barfield. I will argue that the eponymous “regress” reflects Lewis’s belief (post-conversion) that the imagination did indeed point to truth, but that this truth could not be reached by the imagination directly but only by a humble submission to the eternal truth of historic, orthodox Christianity. Barfield, on the other hand, continued to believe that one could (using the terms of the Regress) sail directly to the Island in the West without returning to ...

Romance And The Pocket Pistol: The Armed Poet In The Man Who Was Thursday, Jessica D. Dooley 2010 Taylor University

Romance And The Pocket Pistol: The Armed Poet In The Man Who Was Thursday, Jessica D. Dooley

Inklings Forever

“But the more [Syme] felt this glittering desolation in the moonlit land, the more his own chivalric folly glowed in the night like a great fire. Even the common things he carried with him – the food and the brandy and the loaded pistol – took on exactly that concrete and material poetry which a child feels when he takes a gun upon a journey or a bun with him to bed. The swordstick and the brandy-flask, though in themselves only the tools of morbid conspirators, became the expressions of this own more healthy romance.”

Chesterton’s poet-protagonists bear arms as a ...


The Shieldmaiden Of Rohan, Hannah Woodard 2010 Furman University

The Shieldmaiden Of Rohan, Hannah Woodard

Inklings Forever

This paper explores the origin and purpose of one of Tolkien’s most highly debated characters: Eowyn. I have examined Eowyn from multiple angles, taking into consideration Christian, feminist, and literary perspectives, as well as considering her medieval origins. Tolkien synthesizes all of these factors into a strong female character who represents a larger theme of his work, the triumph of paradoxical power which comes through humility and gentleness. Eowyn’s inner struggle is illuminated particularly by her relationships with both Aragorn, who represents power and renown, and Faramir, who represents restraint and humility. Her final acceptance of her femininity ...


Warren And Jack - Brothers And Friends, Constance Rice 2010 Northwest University

Warren And Jack - Brothers And Friends, Constance Rice

Inklings Forever

My paper is about Warren Lewis, C.S. Lewis’s older brother, and the impact Warren had on his brother’s life and writing and his important contribution to The Inklings. Warren Lewis is often overlooked by scholars or is spoken of only in regards to his struggle with alcoholism. As a brother and friend, he plays an integral part in C.S. Lewis’s life.
