It has been wonderful to see our kids so passionate about me and Christy telling them the story about Narnia. I’m a big fan of stories, fairy tales and superhero stuff in general (Batman, Spiderman, Superman, Iron Man etc.) because they are either pre-evangelistic or gospel-clarifying to children. Good exists. Evil must be stopped. Life is struggle. Not everything that dies stays dead.
In the case of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, of course you have the sacrificial Lion laying down his life for the undeserving boy, but you also have more subtle hints. Take for instance the wardrobe. Its inside is bigger than its outside. This is not random. C.S. Lewis brings it up again about the stable in The Last Battle. From the outside something may look small, constricting. But inside it can be glorious and life giving. But you have to go through the door. Sound familiar? So glad stories like this have gospel fumes! Anyway, here is Logie Boy giving his take on TL, TW and TW. Enjoy!
