Riassunto: Each generation asks in its own way, What does it mean to be human? In True Myth, James Menzies addresses this question by exploring myth and religion in the thinking of mythologist Joseph Campbell and Oxford don C. S. Lewis. Joseph Campbell understood Christianity as comprised of mythical themes similar to those in other religious and secular myths. Admitting that certain portions of the biblical record are historical, he taught the theological and miraculous aspects as symbolic, as stories in which the reader discovers what it means to be human today. C. S. Lewis defined Christianity, and being truly human, as a relationship between the personal Creator and his creation mediated through faith in his son, Jesus Christ. In contrast to Campbell, Lewis took the theological and miraculous literally. Although Lewis understood how one could see symbolism and lessons for life in miraculous events, he believed they were more than symbolic and indeed took place in human history. Not only does Menzies consider the ways Campbell and Lewis utilize myth in answering the question for their generation, but he also probes the influence and presence of myth in philosophy, media, ethics, history, literature, art, music, and religion in a contemporary context, thus helping readers consider answers for their own age.

About the Author: James Menzies has been a pastor for close to thirty years, serving for the past twenty-five years his home church, Perryville Bible, in Rhode Island. He received his BA and MA from Columbia International University (SC) and his PhD from Salve Regina University, Newport, Rhode Island. He has authored a history of Perryville Bible, A Church in the Place, and resides in Perryville with his wife and daughter.

Descrizione libro Pickwick Publications, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Each generation asks in its own way, What does it mean to be human? In True Myth, James Menzies addresses this question by exploring myth and religion in the thinking of mythologist Joseph Campbell and Oxford don C. S. Lewis. Joseph Campbell understood Christianity as comprised of mythical themes similar to those in other religious and secular myths. Admitting that certain portions of the biblical record are historical, he taught the theological and miraculous aspects as symbolic, as stories in which the reader discovers what it means to be human today. C. S. Lewis defined Christianity, and being truly human, as a relationship between the personal Creator and his creation mediated through faith in his son, Jesus Christ.

Although Lewis understood how one could see symbolism and lessons for life in miraculous events, he believed they were more than symbolic and indeed took place in human history. Not only does Menzies consider the ways Campbell and Lewis utilize myth in answering the question for their generation, but he also probes the influence and presence of myth in philosophy, media, ethics, history, literature, art, music, and religion in a contemporary context, thus helping readers consider answers for their own age. True Myth is an important book that has long needed to be written. Menzies has done yeoman service in synthesizing a great deal of material on topics that deserve closer examination. While being fair to the legacy of Joseph Campbell, Menzies presents a rich and nuanced understanding of myth that would have pleased C. S. Lewis. --Louis Markos, Professor of English, Houston Baptist University, Greater Sharpstown, TX For many people, the names Joseph Campbell and C. S. Lewis are immediately recognizable. But popularity does not guarantee a viable philosophy or theology. As the author demonstrates, ideas have consequences. Faith is intensely personal but it must be grounded in truth. If you want to understand these two influential thinkers, start here. --Timothy J. Demy, Professor of Military Ethics, College of Operational Strategic Leadership, U. S. Naval War College, Newport, RI Though there are similarities, Lewis and Campbell were quite different in their views of the world: Campbell did not believe in anything beyond the physical; Lewis did. This book shows how they were the same and yet different in regard to myth, being human, and in many other ways. This is a fine book--and that is a fact, not a myth. --David Naugle, Professor of Philosophy, Dallas Baptist University, Dallas, TX James Menzies has been a pastor for close to thirty years, serving for the past twenty-five years his home church, Perryville Bible, in Rhode Island. He received his BA and MA from Columbia International University (SC) and his PhD from Salve Regina University, Newport, Rhode Island.
