    Biblio File: Making sense of C.S. Lewis

    What is the power of Clive Staples Lewis, author of "The Chronicles of Narnia" and "The Screwtape Letters," to lead contemporary readers to an understanding of Christianity, to deepen the faith of believers, and to be a faithful companion for those facing some of life's biggest decisions? The Oxford scholar died in 1963, and yet his popularity is undiminished. Why? Greg Cootsona, pastor of Adult Discipleship at Chico's Bidwell Presbyterian Church, and an academic in his own right, says of his own journey that "Lewis taught me that Christian faith could withstand serious intellectual engagement."

    Bread for books

    When frequent Chabad Jewish Center visitor Selda Arnoff passed away last November at the age of 96, Rabbi Mendy Zwiebel and his wife, Chana, found themselves facing the unique parental responsibility of explaining the passing of a loved one - whom their children called Bubby Selda - as well as teaching them how death is observed in the Jewish faith. "In Judaism, we believe that everything we do in honor or in memory of one who has passed helps elevate their soul," Chana explained as five of the couple's six children scurried around the center, a large Victorian in the south campus neighborhood, and eldest daughter Moussia, 8, sat close to her mother on a couch.
