The best talk I ever heard...

...was given by Peter Kreeft, the great Christian apologist, at the C.S. Lewis Conference in Austin in 2002. Just months after 9/11 and shortly after Fellowship of the Ring came out in theaters, Kreeft deftly related the two in a brilliant hour I still cherish. For those of you who heard me teach at HSL about evil last year, I borrowed about 40% of it from Kreeft. You can now hear it on the web.

I cannot recommend it more highly! Honestly, I put this talk right up there with the DVD of the 2006 Rose Bowl on my recommendation list. Download it below for free.

I know I'm your Dad, and somewhat biased in my thinking, but hey dude (son), enough of this blogg business already. You have a brilliant mind with a large inventory of experience and facts, and the ability to draw analogies and conclusions from every quarter of the universe. Why not write for a newspaper or magazine? Why not write a novel. You could make a lot of money. After you do this, and become obscenely rich, remember that I'm your Dad, who (whom?) you really love a lot, and whose idea was this anyway? You can do it!!!
