This book has two main sections. The first section discusses the storyline of C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and the allegory and symbols that Lewis weaves into this book (and others in the series). I found that interesting, but already had identified most of the ones discussed.

The second main section discusses the role of fantasy fiction in a Christian's live and compares and contrasts Lewis's Narnia series with two other popular fantasy serieses contemporary to the publication time: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling and His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I was familiar with the former but not the latter. I enjoyed Vieth's take on why there are objections to all 3 serieses and what the similarities and differences between them are. I also enjoyed his discussion of whether fantasy fiction has a place and why. ( )
