About Narnia

CS Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia are now acclaimed as the standard for what is considered ‘classic’ in Children’s fantasy literature. The seven book series, The Chronicles of Narnia were first published in the 1950s. CS Lewis wanted to write a ‘good’ story rather than a ‘Christian’ story. Yet the allegorical Christian message in the Chronicles of Narnia is hard to miss. In fact, to loosely quote from the Magician’s Nephew (Book 1 in the series), “Even though you know that the lion was singing, if you pretend really hard – you make yourself believe that it is just a lion roaring!” And in the same way, if you pretend really hard you could make yourself believe that CS Lewis was writing about something other than eternal truths…

The Chronicles of Narnia take vital elements of the Gospel and communicate them in fantastic (literally- “of fantasy”) images. The eternal truths of a Supreme Emperor, an incarnated Son of the Emperor, the problem of evil and sin as a universal condition of all people, the ultimate redeeming sacrifice of the Creator Himself, the empowering of all those who chose to follow the Creator, and the promise of a final solution to evil are key ingredients to the Narnia stories.
