FINDING GOD IN NARNIA
HONESTLY, ITS NOT HARD TO SEE BIBLICAL REFERENCES IN C.S. LEWIS' BOOKS.HOWEVER ITS A TREAT TO HEAR ABOUT IT.FINDING GOD IN LORD OF THE RINGS WAS BETTER THOUGH BECAUSE IT POINTS OUT THE SUBTLET OF IT ALL.TOLKEIN AND LEWIS WOULD HELP EACH OTHER ON THEIR BOOKS SO THERE MIS A LITTLE BIT OF TOLKEIN IN NARNIA AS WELL AS A LITTLE BIT OF LEWIS IN LORD OF THE RINGS.NARNIA IS EASIER TO UNDERSTAND EVEN FOR CHILDREN WITH THEIR IMAGINATION.LORD OF THE RINGS HOWEVER IS MORE FOR ADVANCED READERS.
This really is a fantastic book. I have never listened to the audiobook, but I read the printed version and was amazed by the insights I found there. Bruner and Ware look at Narnia from a Biblical perspective, the way Lewis intended for the books to be interpreted. They use their own eloquence and wisdom to draw deep lessons out of Lewis's wardrobe. Whether you are a Christian whose faith has been enriched by the truths the Chronicles of Narnia portray, or a wanderer looking to understand Narnia and the Christian faith, this book is an essential for going "further up and further in" in your enjoyment of The Chronicles of Narnia.
