Summary

One rainy day, years ago, a little girl named Lucy discovered that the back of a wardrobe isn't always just the back of a wardrobe. Sometimes, it's a door into another world.

In Lucy's case, that other world was called Narnia, and though she was among the first to enter it, she was by no means the last. Millions of children (young and old) have followed her there and met its strange but wonderful inhabitants - Mr. Tumnus, Reepicheep, and Puddleglum, among others.

But the lessons of Narnia don't just belong to the world of fiction and fantasy. We may never meet fawns, talking mice, or marshwiggles in our ordinary lives, but the lessons they teach in The Chronicles of Narnia are the very lessons we need to fight the battles we face in our everyday lives.

Douglas Wilson begins this series of meditations on C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia with the observation, "This is not intended to be an introduction to Narnia at all, but is rather more like a conversation between good friends about some other good friends, talking about what a good time we all had and why." Wilson highlights the practical themes of mature, Christian living that emerge from these classic tales - nobility, confession, complete grace - a joyful contrast to the thinness of modern life. A must for any Narnia fan, young or old.

Many great insights analyzing the Narnia series

I would highly recommend this to anyone who has read the Narnia series and wants to think through the many Christian ideas and worldview of the books. Many things I was seeing. I benefited as I am now on my second time through the Narnia books.

In-depth analysis yet also succinct

This book (audiobook) is an excellent analysis of the biblical principles in Lewis's Narnia series. I especially like chapter 5 on the importance of story and reading the right kind of stories, not just Bible stories. I would recommend this to anyone who loves Narnia!
