Author Bio

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Pauline Baynes has produced hundreds of wonderful illustrations for the seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia. In 1968 she was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for her outstanding contribution to children's literature.

    Interesting story - yet take much caution!

    Once, when I had read the chronicle almost to the end, I was thrilled. The stories in the chronicles were surprising and imaginative.

    HOWEVER, now I know that in the ending book of the Chronicle, author C. S. Lewis gives dubious teachings that totally contradict with the whole teaching of the Bible.

    The chronicle, written by the well-know Christian figure, very explicitly claims in the last book ('The final battle of Narnia') that Aslan (as you may have heard, there are obviously clear references to Jesus throughout the Chronicles) and "Tars" (some weird "monster god") are the same.

    Sounds tough, right? Hard to believe it, ? Here's the translation of that claim found in chapter 15, with my translation from the Finnish version: "[Aslan says:] My child, all that you've made to serve Tars, I take it as your service to me". That's some bizarre teaching! So, it clearly states that believing in any other god is the same as believing in Jesus Christ and His Father. (If you dont believe it has this citation, you can well take a look at it yourself). So Lewis totally opposes the message of the Bible and the Gospels.

    What's more, this claim is intentionally in the book. A friend of mine has told me about having read an article written by Lewis, the teaching of which was perfectly in line with this incomprehensible distortion of the Word (as you may have noticed, its a seriously twisted form of Matthew 25:40). This is a tough reality, considering that the books (as separate) have sold more than 100 million.

    Excellent format to this FAVORITE

    I bought this book as a Christmas present for my wife. She has worn out a set of paperback Narnia books by reading them to herself, me , and our kids for the past 20 years. I mean WORN OUT. She wanted to read it to our youngest kids, but they were falling apart. This format is AWESOME for adults to read, and also to read to the kids. This is a sturdy hardcover book that will far outlast the paperback or slipcase books. Also the price is right. This is a prized possession, and I can see her reading it to our kids and Grandkids for the rest of her life.

    One cannot go wrong reading Lewis' most popular "children's story." This volume is set apart by putting the tales in Lewis' preferred order beginning with The Magician's Nephew. Having all the chronicles in one volume is great. I'm glad I made the purchase and intend to read the books again for the tenth time or so.

Q: Would this be ok to give to a child age 11? I was just wondering if this book with all the stories in one, would be appropriate to give to a child this young or would it be better to buy the individual books..Are there illustrations in this book?


Yes - this does have illustrations. As far as an 11 year old, generally it depends on the reading level, but I would think that this is a perfect age for this book.
