What’s it about?
It all started with a wardrobe. When the four Pevensie children are sent to a big, old house in the country during World War II they never expected to find themselves leading another war in a another world so different than their own. The ordinary-looking wardrobe that the youngest Pevensie, Lucy, finds is in fact not ordinary at all. Soon all four children find themselves in the snow-covered land of Narnia. However, all is not well in this beautiful place. The good creatures of Narnia are being ruled and terrorized by an evil tyrant, the White Witch. As the old prophecy foretells, only two “Sons of Adam” and two “Daughters of Eve” can rule the land justly, but there is only One who can defeat the witch and bring back spring, The Great Lion who has not been seen in Narnia for many a year.

Emma’s Thoughts:
-C.S. Lewis’s most famous book, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe definitely deserves it’s fame.
-I grew up reading the Chronicles of Narnia, and they have had a great impact on my life. If you haven’t read them yet, then stop reading this review- and immediately begin reading this amazing series. Why are you still reading this? Go!
-(Just kidding, keep reading.)

Good things:
-There are so many amazing things in this book, I don’t know where to start! Lewis was a strong Christian and an amazing writer, for both adults and children. It is very easy to spot parallels with scripture in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, specifically with regard to the crucifixion and resurection. Throughout the Chronicles of Narnia you can see stories based on Bible accounts and Biblical teaching portrayed in these fantasy books.
-Themes from the Bible that are evident in this book are forgiveness, redemption, nobility, loyalty as well as many other honorable things. This book is a masterful fairy-tale, extremely edifying and a true classic.

Till We Have Faces

October 13, 2015

What’s it about? “That moment I resolved to write this book. For years my quarrel with the gods had slept, now, instantly, I knew I was facing them. I could set down the truth. What had never perhaps been done in the world before should be done now. The case against them should be written.” […]
