A fantastic book of insight for the land of Narnia
August 19, 2013
This book is not only a phenomenal value, given the low CBD price; but this incredible little book is an easy read which provides an in-depth, insightful overview of Narnia. The book is well-titled. The authors do a great job of revealing the heart behind CS Lewis as an allegorical, fictional author who brilliantly conveys the many parallels between our lives here on earth and the fantastical land of Narnia (reality in this world vs. reality in the spiritual realm). Both of these realities dovetail and fit together. The authors of Finding God in the Land of Narnia point out some excellent areas where biblical truths can be found in the Narnia books. The authors of this book do a super job of boiling down CS Lewis's symbolism. I highly recommend this book as a helpful tool for readers of The Chronicles of Narnia, especially those who may struggle, fail and/or doubt to see the many parallels between Christianity and Scripture in CS Lewis's wonderful, classic masterpiece. The beauty is that although Narnia is fictional; our nonfictional, earthly lives share this very same parallel with the spiritual realm of good and evil.
Finding God in the Land of Narnia by Kurt Bruner and Jim Ware reveals the profound spiritual insights throughout The Chronicles of Narnia. By reading this book, the reader will discover the Christian parallels in the land of Narnia, and the corresponding connections with the Christian faith. Explore Narnia and find that there is a deeper and far richer meaning inside this classic tale than at first it may appear. This book not only provides a better understanding of the The Chronicles of Narnia books, but also a better perception of God and the many inspirational truths in the Bible.
I was surprised by how good this book is. Brings back fond memories of reading the series. Some might find the content obvious, but since repetition is one of the most useful learning tools, I find this a good read.
"The Chronicles of Narnia" is my all-time favourite besides the Bible. I know and can see many parallels between "that world" and "this one", but "Finding God in the Land of Narnia" opened my eyes even further! Kurt Bruner and Jim Ware dig deeper into C.S. Lewis' mind and unearth the most unexpected results! This is definitely a book I recommend, especially for Narnia fans!!Long live Aslan!
