Synopsis

Revisiting Narnia Fantasy, Myth And Religion in C. S. Lewis' Chronicles by Shanna Caughey

Theologians, psychologists, academics, feminists, and fantasists offer humor, insight, and fresh perspectives on the enchanting and beloved Chronicles of Narnia series. Such contributors as fantasists Sarah Zettel and Lawrence Watt-Evans, children's literature scholar Naomi Wood, and C.S. Lewis scholars Colin Duriez and Joseph Pearce discuss topics such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Middle Earth's influence on the conception of Narnia, the relevance of allegory for both Christians and non-Christians, the idea of divine providence in Narnia, and Narnia's influence on modern-day witchcraft. Fans of the wildly popular series will revel in the examination of all aspects of C.S. Lewis and his magical Narnia.

Reviews

A fascinating book that will provide new ideas to think about ... this book should be on your short list. --Robert Trexler, editor, CSL: The Bulletin of the New York C.S. Lewis Society
