The Living Hope Book Review is currently reading and discussing
The Chronicles of Narnia
Some of the other books we have read and discussed in the past include Mere Christianity and Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, The Shack by William P. Young and The Circle Series by Ted Dekker.
Class participants read a few chapters each week at home. When we meet together on Sunday morning we share our thoughts and Bible verses in regard to that week’s reading. This class is open to all adults. We strive to keep our class relaxed and encourage participation and discussion by everyone.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven high fantasy novels by C. S. Lewis. It is considered a classic of children’s literature and is the author’s best-known work, having sold over 100 million copies in 47 languages. Written by Lewis between 1949 and 1954, illustrated by Pauline Baynes and originally published in London between October 1950 and March 1956, The Chronicles of Narnia has been adapted several times, complete or in part, for radio, television, the stage, and film.
Set in the fictional realm of Narnia, a place where animals talk, magic is common, and good battles evil, the series narrates the adventures of various children who play central roles in the unfolding history of that world. Except in The Horse and His Boy, the protagonists are all children from the real world magically transported to Narnia, where they are called upon by the lion Aslan to protect Narnia from evil and restore the throne to its rightful line. The books span the entire history of Narnia, from its creation in The Magician’s Nephew, to its eventual destruction in The Last Battle.
