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. Many people examine the Narnia books for Christian allegories, but as Mr. Lewis himself stated, the books were not written as allegories, but were fantastic stories into which Christian truths pushed themselves. This book is not so much an examination of the theology of the Chronicles of Narnia, but a look at the Christian truths that are found there nonetheless. I must say that I found this to be a wonderfully interesting book. The authors examine the Christian truths reflected in the Narnia books - everything from creation, to sin, redemption, and the nature of man. If you are a fan of the Narnia books, then you will enjoy this one. Indeed, I don't doubt that C.S. Lewis himself would have enjoyed it. And, I will add that this book is simple enough reading that you can give it to a high school or even junior high school student, and they will be able to read and fully understand it. This is a great book that I highly recommend to everyone!
