This time of year is always interesting for me. I finish one semester on a Friday and start another 3 days later on a Monday (Summer classes). To make things more interesting, during my finals week, one of my brothers visited from Chicago, and our family also visited Georgia for a friend’s wedding! To save myself from going insane during finals week, I was able to front-load my coursework before the week arrived. With that being said, last semester was a fruitful one. I took a total of 3 courses and I would like to take the time to reflect on my fifth semester at Denver Seminary.
We have some exciting news to announce! We are currently going through the application process with the Overseas Missionary Fellowship (OMF), an international mission agency, with the intention of serving as long-term missionaries in Japan by Summer 2020! Before we get into the details of what that looks like, we would like to explain how we got here.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*Note: I never was good at writing objectively or critiquing books, so this will probably read more like a blog than a brief assessment of the series. Still, I hope you may be interested in what I have to say about C.S. Lewis’s “Space Trilogy.”
Having read the first book, “Out of the Silent Planet,” as a student at Taylor University, I was always curious about the next two. Now, five years after graduating, I finally got around to finishing both “Perelandra” and “That Hideous Strength” back to back. I accomplished this through listening to the audio books on Hoopla – check it out online and/or as a smartphone app; it’s free if you have a library card (which is also free)! That being said, I would suggest that one either only read the entire series together or solely listen to all three, because some of the “foreign” names that I read about in the first book – and I did like reading the funny spellings – were not pronounced how I’d originally guessed, nor were the voices of some characters portrayed in the same way as I’d imagined they were in the first book; however, these deviations did not majorly affect the intrigue of the story.
