The Chronicles of Narnia series has sold over 85 million copies worldwide and single-handedly introduced people of all ages to the central doctrines of Christianity. Anticipating the December 2005 Walden Media/Walt Disney Pictures release of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, this book guides readers through the novel that started it all. Inside Narnia offers a close reading of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Tracing through the book chapter by chapter, Devin Brown explores the features of C. S. Lewis's writing, supplies supplemental information on Lewis's life and other books, offers comments and opinions from other Lewis scholars, and shows the work's rich meanings. Insightful and thorough, Inside Narnia will dig deeper into Lewis's magical world to reveal biblical truths that often go uncovered. Fans of C. S. Lewis and those who will meet him through the upcoming film release will want to read this book.… (more)

Learn more about the book that started it all—The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe—and about its creator, C. S. Lewis. Discover how Professor Lewis first came to write his wonderful story about a magical land where it is always winter and never Christmas. Uncover the story-behind-the-story of how four children and a great lion named Aslan brought springtime back and rescued its inhabitants (beavers, fauns, and even centaurs) from the spell of the evil White Witch.

Without taking too scholarly a tone, Brown breaks down The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe chapter-by-chapter. His discussion focuses on the literary (rather than theological or philosophical) aspects of the text. This is a good, accessible companion to the book. ( )
