The Bodhisattva Ideal In Theravāda Buddhist Theory And Practice: A Reevaluation Of The Bodhisattva-Śrāvaka Opposition, Jeffrey Samuels Jul 1997

The Bodhisattva Ideal In Theravāda Buddhist Theory And Practice: A Reevaluation Of The Bodhisattva-Śrāvaka Opposition, Jeffrey Samuels

Philosophy & Religion Faculty Publications

In the academic study of Buddhism the terms" Mahayana" and "Hinayana" are often set in contradiction to each other, and the two vehicles are described as having different aspirations, teachings, and practices. The distinctions made between the Mahayana and the Hinayana, how-ever, force the schools into neat, isolated, and independent categories that often undermine the complexities that exist concerning their beliefs, ideologies, and practices.

The Abolition Of Man: First Principles And Pre-Evangelism (Or "What C.S. Lewis Taught My Brother"), Ted Dorman

Inklings Forever

In his work, The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis expresses a powerful analysis of the modern philosophies of the day. By defending what was deemed subjective and revealing the end point of modern thought, he communicates the Gospel in a way that resonates with unbelievers.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.


Shadows That Fall: The Immanence Of Heaven In The Fiction Of Lewis And Macdonald, David Manley Jan 1997

Shadows That Fall: The Immanence Of Heaven In The Fiction Of Lewis And Macdonald, David Manley

C.S. Lewis’s view of heaven were shaped by George MacDonald’s fiction. By examining the fiction of of both men we see their vision of heaven, how art imitates heaven, and how heaven shall come to earth.

Some Shattering Simplicity: Suffering, Love, And Faith In The Thought Of C.S. Lewis, Jennifer Woodruff Jan 1997

Some Shattering Simplicity: Suffering, Love, And Faith In The Thought Of C.S. Lewis, Jennifer Woodruff

Inklings Forever

A repeated theme in the works of C.S. Lewis is the tension inherent in why and how we believe and accept Christianity. Christianity makes sense of reality, but at the same time shatters all our expectations of reality. Examining Lewis’s writings about the nature of suffering, faith, and love we learn how this is not a contradiction but a shattering simplicity that reveals the truth about reality.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.

C.S. Lewis: Past Watchful Dragons, Stephanie Jones Jan 1997

C.S. Lewis: Past Watchful Dragons, Stephanie Jones

Inklings Forever

Through his many stories C.S. Lewis has a unique way in which he engages the reader, first catching them with an idea, then slipping past the “watchful dragons” of our intellect to speak to our deepest parts. These stories are often discussed intellectually, but it is also important to know how these stories impact readers on a personal level.

Till We Have Faces: A Restoration Of Perspective On The Condition Of Man, Joan Alexander Jan 1997

Till We Have Faces: A Restoration Of Perspective On The Condition Of Man, Joan Alexander

Inklings Forever

Man’s relationship to a Divine Being is one of the persisting concerns of literature, with modern leanings contending that God does not exist or does not involve himself with man. C.S. Lewis’s Till We Have Faces concerns itself with this approach to God, proposing that it might not be God who is the problem but man’s perception of him.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.


The Apologetics Of Chesterton And Lewis In A World Marked By Disbelief, Michael R. Smith Jan 1997

The Apologetics Of Chesterton And Lewis In A World Marked By Disbelief, Michael R. Smith

Inklings Forever

In an age characterized by meaninglessness and relativeness, arguments once thought to be timeless are challenged by a postmodernism world view that evaluates all ideas as equal and flawed just the same. G.K Chesterton and C.S. Lewis are two sources of authority regularly referenced by current apologists, and provide a variety of logically sound arguments for Christianity.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.


Unto The End Of The World: Omega Point Eschatology In C.S. Lewis And Pierre Teilhard De Chardin, Chris Smith Jan 1997

Unto The End Of The World: Omega Point Eschatology In C.S. Lewis And Pierre Teilhard De Chardin, Chris Smith

Inklings Forever

There are many diverse understandings of the futuristic passages of scriptures and how to interpret their terms and symbols. Two eschatological perspectives on the “Omega Point” (the end of time when God would re-unite the church with himself) can be found in the writings of French Jesuit anthropologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and British Scholar C.S. Lewis.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.


Myth Made Truth: Origins Of The Chronicles Of Narnia, Mark Bane Jan 1997

Myth Made Truth: Origins Of The Chronicles Of Narnia, Mark Bane

Inklings Forever

The Chronicles of Narnia are some of C.S. Lewis’s most beloved books, but how did they come about and what was their purpose? By tracing his life, interests, and faith one can see how these elements shaped Lewis’s narrative of Narnia.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.


The Question Of Biblical Allegory In Tell We Have Faces, David Bedsole Jan 1997

The Question Of Biblical Allegory In Tell We Have Faces, David Bedsole

Inklings Forever

In 1956, C.S. Lewis published a retelling of a pagan myth, Till We Have Faces. On the surface one may simply read it as a retelling, but considering his career as a theological author one can see how Till We Have Faces is rich with Christian themes and thought.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.


The Speaking Elephant: Rightly Dividing Macdonald's Fairy Tales, Darren Hotmire Jan 1997

The Speaking Elephant: Rightly Dividing Macdonald's Fairy Tales, Darren Hotmire

Inklings Forever

Due to the mythopoetic nature of George MacDonald’s writings many interpretations have arisen as to the meaning of his work. By studying his sermons, letters, and other writings we can discover the intended meanings of his Fairy Tales.

Presented at the 1997 Frances White Ewbank Colloquium.
