Genre – Devotional Theology
Length – 26:13
Considered a masterpiece by Catholic scholars, Guardini’s The Lord has remained in print for decades. In it, Guardini wishes to present a correct understanding of Jesus by writing about his life and person, with all the limitations which the subject necessarily imposes. Although Christ lived in a specific historical milieu, and though knowledge of the forces at work in it furthers an understanding of him, Guardini states that a biography of Christ is practicable only within the narrowest confines. Neither Jesus’ personality nor his works are immediately traceable to the conditions of the times, for he came “out of the fullness of time” contained in the mystery of God, and it was to this mystery that he returned after he had moved among us. Pope Benedict XVI wrote of it: “The Lord has not grown old, precisely because it still leads us to that which is essential, to that which is truly real, Jesus Christ Himself. That is why today this book still has a great mission.”
The Prince of Darkness
Radical Evil and the Power of Good in History
Jeffrey Burton Russell
Genre – Historical Survey
Length – 11:01
After a compelling essay on the nature of evil, Russell uncovers the origins of the concept of the Devil in various early cultures and then traces its evolution in Western thought from the time of the ancient Hebrews through the first centuries of the Christian era. Next he turns to the medieval view of the Devil, focusing on images found in folklore, scholastic thought, art, literature, mysticism, and witchcraft. Finally, he follows the Devil into our own era, where he draws on examples from theology, philosophy, art, literature, and popular culture to describe the great changes in this traditional notion of evil brought about by the intellectual and cultural developments of modern times.

Spirits in Bondage
C. S. Lewis
Genre – Poetry, Religion, Atheism
Length – 1:26
Published under the pseudonym, Clive Hamilton, Spirits in Bondage was C. S. Lewis’ first book. Released in 1919 by Heinemann, it is now in the public domain in the United States. It is significant primarily as a window into the pre-Christian mind of the man who would later pen such classics as The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, and the Chronicles of Narnia. This collection of poetry shows that as a man of twenty, Lewis was already possessed of a keen modern intellect and a vivid romantic imagination. Now for the first time in audiobook form and with a brand new preface by, Lewis scholar, Dr. Gordon Greenhill. Available as audiobook and ebook (with original illustrations by Leah Morrison).
