Shamuel2 Stars Out Of 5Interesting story - yet take much caution!January 6, 2016ShamuelQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Once, 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, since so many believers have shared it with their children? 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 me on this, you might 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.

There are a few differences but it was a good read. It does a good job of teaching correct decision making and how God works with individuals as well as teaching biblical truth.
