About Us

This blog is inspired by Puddleglum's declaration in C.S. Lewis' The Silver Chair. Trapped underground, the evil witch was insisting that her underworld was the only world there was. There was no sun, no sky, no trees, and especially no Aslan. Puddleglum's response remains one of our favorite moments in the entire series:
Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world.  Well, it strikes me as pretty poor one. . . We’re just babies making up a game, if you’re right.  But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That’s why I’m going to stand by the play-world. I’m on Aslan’s side, even if there isn’t any Aslan to lead it. . . . So, thanking you kindly for our supper . . . we’re leaving your court at once and setting out in the dark to spend our lives looking for Overland. Not that our lives will be very long, I should think; but that’s a small loss if the world’s as dull a place as you say.
This side of heaven, we Christians live as if in an underworld. We're present in this world, but our citizenship is in another. How we conduct ourselves in this underworld has been the subject of theologians for centuries, and we can't claim to answer the questions. What we can do, we hope, is contribute to the discussion, specifically in the area of politics and culture.

So who are we? Looking for Overland: YE Speak is authored by three friends who met at Patrick Henry College and then worked together at the Home School Legal Defense Association. We were all homeschooled up until college and, more importantly, are all Christians. While we may disagree at times in matters of secondary importance, we are united in our faith.
