Item description for Journey into Narnia by Kathryn Ann Lindskoog, Patrick Wynne & Patrick Wynn...

Overview
Hope Publishing House Renowned C. S. Lewis scholar Kathryn Lindskoog has here expanded and updated her classic study of Lewis's Narnia series originally titled, "The Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land: The Theology of C.S. Lewis Expressed in his fantasies for Children." Now with the addition of a study guide, including a look at the chronological order of the series of the seven books, the "Journey into Narnia" is filled with abundant and fresh new background information that not only puts the series in its context but explains many of the English terms unfamiliar to the American reader. Ms. Lindskoog provides many Biblical parallels which illumine the plot. These concise insights and applications are designed for personal reading pleasure as well as being practical helpers for teachers, parents and ministers. When C. S. Lewis read the first draft of this manuscript, he commented, "You are in the center of the target everywhere. For one thing, you know my work better than anyone else I've met; certainly better than I do myself.... You (alone of the critics I've met) realize the connection or even the unity of all the books-scholarly, fantastic, theological-and make me appear a single author, not a man who impersonates half a dozen authors, which is what I seem to most. This wins really very high marks indeed." This important text of Lewis scholarship has been copied, widely used but never surpassed.

Reviews - What do customers think about Journey into Narnia?

The Wisdom of Narnia  Dec 31, 2002
I love the book. It has the best quotes from all the chronicals.
A good item for collecters.
 
A Great Travel Guide to Narnia  Aug 12, 2001
Chronicles of Narnia is a set of books that adults readers want to reflect on, to figure out what it all means. Lindskoog knows these books at many levels---the concrete and story-line connections across stories, how the connections were put there by the authors who did not write the books in chronological order, and the connections between story elements and philosophical and religious themes. All adult readers of the Chronicles should also read this book. Teachers who want to include any of the Narnian books in their classrooms will really benefit from the insights and the instructional aids provided by Lindskoog.
 
a deepened appreciation of Narnia  Aug 8, 2001
Kathryn Lindskoog is one heck of an author. I have greatly enjoyed reading her books. Journey into Narnia is no exception. In fact, I believe she brings the most passion to her work here.

The first half of this volume, "The Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land" is a masterpiece. It is like a theology of Lewis' Narnian tales. Lindskoog is not just another fan of Narnia, she is an insightful scholar. She demonstrates her deep knowledge of Lewis' other work while examining Lewis' views on Creation, Humanity, and God as expressed in the Narnian stories.

I must make mention here that one should read Lewis' books at least once all the way through before reading this book...a lot is given away (The conclusion is quoted within the first fifty pages). So don't spoil Narnia for yourself...read the books before you read this.

Part two is a book by book look at the stories. It has trivia questions, things to ponder, and benedictions based on each story (I love the one for The Magician's Nephew). The most startling thing I took away from part two is how much Lewis owed and made allusion to E. Nesbit's children's stories within the Narnian books.

The Chronicles of Narnia are some of my all-time favorite books. Mrs. Lindskoog has added to my appreciation of them. I recommend this book highly...may the Great Lion be with you.

 
Great book!  Apr 30, 2000
This book is fabulous! It explains all of the sybolic and religous meaning in the books and has a lot of interesting facts about Lewis and Narnia. It also includes the ages of the children in each book and has the recipies for the foods in the books, like Turkish Delight and alot of other stuff. This is a great book for anyone who has ever read the Chronicles. I highly reccomend it.

This book and all the Narnia books are excellent books andshould be shared by everyone.Narnia seemed so real, and yet so faroff.They were the greatest books and I think I'm going to read them over 10 times(kidding).
