A challenge to Believe.

This past weekend at Oklahoma Wesleyan University, we celebrated our winter graduation. President, Dr. Everett Piper, addressed the graduates and their families with this speech we thought you would appreciate too...a challenge to Believe. If you follow or listen to Dr. Piper very long, you'll find he's a big fan of C.S. Lewis...

"I am very fond of C.S. Lewis and I love his children’s stories. One of my favorites is from the Chronicles of Narnia. It is a scene from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which was made into a feature film a few years ago to much acclaim. It is the story of Father Christmas, Lucy, her siblings, and Mr. and Mrs. Beaver as they stand fearful and confused in the cold, frozen tundra of the White Witch’s kingdom...continued here

Looking for good book recommendations for yourself or for a Christmas gift?
Here's a suggestion from Dr. Piper's bookshelf and right in line with his commencement address:
The Soul of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
Authored by Gene Veith, this is a great companion book to a C.S. Lewis classic that helps us understand Aslan as both lion and lamb; that He is good but not safe; and that He is loving and yet He changes lives.
MERRY CHRISTMAS
AND THANK YOU

Dr. Piper's Book

In a delightfully refreshing and revealing tone, Dr. Piper exposes the potential fallacy in today's liberal academia and political spheres. He masterfully addresses educational, social, political, and religious issues that have shaped American culture. 

His commentary rhetorically confronts the reader to consider issues such as freedom, justice, common sense, human dignity, and moral objectivity.
