Publisher's Description

"Walking into Advent can be like walking through the wardrobe."

With its enchanting themes of snow and cold, light and darkness, meals and gifts, temptation and sin, forgiveness and hope--and even an appearance by Father Christmas--C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe fits naturally into the Advent season. As the reader seeks a storied king and anticipates the glorious coming of Christmas, these twenty-eight devotions alternate between Scripture and passages from the novel to prompt meditation on Advent themes. Each devotion also includes questions for reflection. The book also provides several resources for churches, including four sessions for small group discussion and ideas for creating a "Narnia Night" for families. Readers will ultimately come to know God better while journeying through Narnia.

Editorial Reviews

"This excellent book makes me want to spend my next Advent in Narnia. Haverkamp's week-by-week guide is great for families, as well as for adults of any age who are looking for a delightful way to reflect upon the Advent season." --Paul Jarzembowski, Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Ministries, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

"Heidi Haverkamp writes that Advent is a borderland. Her book is a reliable map for exploring this border country. She leads us with a lively faith that moves from the world of flat practicality and cynicism to the possibility of one filled with delight and risk and enchantment, one in which Christ is 'on the move' in our lives." --The Right Rev. Jeffrey Lee, Bishop, The Episcopal Diocese of Chicago

"Heidi Haverkamp 's Advent in Narnia is both delightful and profound: delightful because it provides a vehicle for Christians of all ages to experience the joys of C.S. Lewis's classic fantasy; profound because it explores Advent's themes of hope and expectation with real theological depth."--The Very Reverend Gary R. Hall, Dean, Washington National Cathedral
