5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly fascinating book!, 22 Sept. 2005
By 
Kurt A. Johnson (Marseilles, IL USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Inside Narnia: A Guide to Exploring 'The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe' (Paperback)
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) is remembered for two things - his great works of Christian theology (Mere Christianity, The Great Divorce, and many more) and his Chronicles of Narnia books. Now, many books have been published on the theology of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (TLWW), but this book looks at TLWW as a work of literature. Going through TLWW chapter by chapter, and indeed section by section, Dr. Devin G. Brown (professor of English at Asbury College, Wilmore, Kentucky), gives the reader a fascinating commentary on what is happening and what it means.
I must say that this is a surprisingly fascinating book! The author begins with the dedication at the beginning of TLWW, and goes through the entirety of the book, explaining and clarifying just about everything. Now, don't get the idea that this book is a dry academic work. In fact, the author does an excellent job of hold the reader's interest.
If you are a fan of C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, then this is the book for you. It provides the reader with a deep understanding of this seemingly simple Christian classic, telling you things you never would have guessed. I highly recommend this book.
