Description

This is one essay from the anthology Revisiting Narnia

C. S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia have stimulated imaginations for more than half a century, inspiring childhood wonder, earnest faith and spirited debate regarding Christian doctrine. Widely studied and revered, Lewis’ Chronicles are structured around deep paradigms and resounding questions: How do the books form such an intimate, personal bond with readers both young and old? Does Narnia betray some hidden Universalism in Lewis’ theology? What are we to think of the evil dark-skinned Calormenes from the South who seem to represent the Arab race? What really prevented Susan from entering Narnia? What does Aslan’s characterization as a “tame lion” say about Lewis’ thoughts on providence?
