Alister McGrath — Theologian, Historian, Apologist, Author of C.S.Lewis – A LifeEven those well-acquainted with the life and work of the legendary Chronicles Of Narnia creator, will discover never before revealed information, including provocative facts that re-open the question of the chronology of Lewis’s faith conversion. Dr. Alister McGrath is the only scholar to have conducted a complete, chronological analysis of the entire collection of Lewis’s letters and archives. Alister McGrath, one of the world's leading Christian theologians, is Professor of Theology, Ministry, and Education at King's College London, and Head of its Center for Theology, Religion and Culture. Before moving to King's College, he was Professor of Historical Theology at Oxford University. Like Lewis, McGrath was born in Belfast, and became an atheist as a young man, before rediscovering the Christian faith at Oxford University. McGrath's deep knowledge of Christian theology, history, and literature allows him to interpret Lewis against a broad backdrop, presenting a fascinating portrait of the development of Lewis's mind and his impact on western culture.

Eryn-Faye — Canada's Passion Coach, Author of The Essential Elements of Sex: 9 Secrets to a Lifetime of IntimacyFor almost ten years, Eryn-Faye (LL.B) has done extensive research and coached thousands of individuals and couples. The results? While 70 per cent of divorces are instigated by women, most resources on the topic of sex in marriage are written by men. After uncovering this enormous problem, Eryn-Faye has been even more committed to being a thoughtful, respectful but very real voice addressing marital intimacy. “Sex is consistently listed as one of the top 2 factors contributing towards divorce. When a couple is having difficulty in their sex life they are usually facing problems in other areas of their marriage as well. My goal is to resource these couples with tools that will guide them towards getting their marriage in a healthy place again” said Eryn-Faye. In December 2012 she released her most popular workshop to the public as a book, entitled The Essential Elements of Sex: 9 Secrets to a Lifetime of Intimacy. Both the book and workshop provides readers with the building blocks they need to achieve the sex life they’ve always hoped for in their marriage.

The Counsel of ManyThis week on the Counsel Of Many: A man wants to know if he's out of line for wanting women, especially Christian women, to stop dressing like they want sex!
I realize that my opinion will be considered sexist by many, but speaking as a single male, I personally think that the majority of women are dressing like sluts. And yes, what I mean is that they are dressing like they are trying to attract a male for the purpose of – as Sheldon says from Big Bang Theory – coitus! And the church is no different. Women from my church at least, seem to have no clue that how they choose to dress, actually compels men to look at the various body parts they are obviously trying to highlight! And when we focus on your body parts, we focus on sex. It's pretty easy. And it seems like you are too! When us guys can see your thong lines or thong straps showing – it turns us on. When you bend over and reveal your tramp stamp – it turns us on. When we can see your nipples through your top – it turns us on. When you wear pants tight enough to reveal – well, EVERYTHING – it turns us on. When you push your breasts up to the point of major cleavage exposure – it turns us on. Now, the usual responses I get from people when I bring these points up are: “Well you're the one getting turned on so it's your problem!” OR “So what, you expect women to dress like they're from Little House On The Prairie?” I realize that the lust issue is ours – BUT DRESSING LIKE SLUTS DOES NOT HELP US! And no, I obviously don't want women to dress like the Amish! But shouldn't the Christian women at least be aware of how their dress choices are affecting us men? Shouldn't Christian women dress differently then the rest of the world? There was a Toronto police officer who got into trouble a while ago for saying to a bunch of college aged girls, something to the effect that, if you're going to dress like sluts then don't be surprised if you are sexually assaulted. Maybe not the best thing for someone in such a politically correct position to say – but is it not true? I'd be interested to know if I'm the ONLY man who feels this way.
