What is Love?
An Essay on C.S. Lewis' Till We Have Faces
by Jackson Collender
The school bell rings. Class is over. There is lots of chatter. Margaret packs up her bags and finds a pink card; it is her first Valentine’s Day card. As it is the season of Valentines the subject of love is ringing in the air. But what is love? Is Margaret being loved or being loved for the other person’s benefit, just to satisfy the feeling? Clive Staples Lewis, often referred to as C.S. Lewis, wrote an amazing piece of fiction about the idea of love. In it he retells the story of Cupid and Psyche.
Is Genesis History?
I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to Dr. Del Tackett’s new documentary. It asks the question I--and I’m sure many of you and your older children have asked--Is Genesis History? Of course, we teach it as such at Veritas Scholars Academy, and we believe it. But part of our humanity is skepticism. As we grow older, we start to question more. What we once accepted as fact is now picked apart and turned upside down--we don’t know what to believe anymore. There’s nothing wrong with asking questions as long as your desire is to know the truth. The folks who are producing the film have graciously provided us a guide to the film as we, too, ask ourselves the question: Is Genesis History?
