A faithful companion to take on this classic adventure! Mar 3, 2006
Looking for a family-friendly and faith-filled tour through the first book in the Narnia series? That's exactly what you will find in these cleverly arranged pages. Author Christin Ditchfield has gleaned some spiritual truths and organized them in a very readable and concise manner. Fans of C. S. Lewis, as well as newcomers to the series, will appreciate the dovetailing of the fantasy story with the Word of God.
The author has provided an overview of the Narnia tale, beginning with an interesting biography of Lewis. The original idea, which sparked this famous series, is explained and becomes the perfect place to start the adventure. After readers step through the wardrobe, they will find a chapter-by-chapter look at the symbolism and biblical teaching that make up the framework of the story. Each chapter is quickly analyzed for scriptural parallels and principles. Appropriate Bible verses are also included. The concepts highlighted are simple enough for younger children to grasp, while being pertinent to the adult world as well. Illustrations grace these pages and bring both the characters and the action to life.
The remaining part of the book is called, "Continuing the Adventure," and includes some entertaining and easy ways to prolong the reader's stay in Narnia. Recipes for English scones and Turkish Delight are included, as well as some ideas for personalizing the story, through crafts and skits.
Christin Ditchfield's book definitely enriches the reading of the first Narnia tale by emphasizing some important spiritual insights.
