Overview

An updated and expanded classic study of C.S.Lewis's Narnia series with a study guide and a chronological review of the seven books. Biblical parallels and applications highlighted are for personal reading pleasure, but provide pracical helps for teachers, parents and ministers as well. Journey into Narnia includes Kathryn Lindskoog's classic "Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land" and her brand new "Exploring the Narnian Chronicles." The pair provide a wealth of information and ideas, as well as personal reading pleasure. C.S. Lewis, in a handwritten letter said: "[The Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land] arrived yesterday and I read it at once. You are in the centre of the target everywhere. For one thing, you know my work better than anyone I've met: certainly better than I do myself." Edmund Fuller, in The Wall Street Journal had said: "An excellent exposition of the sinewy theology that underlies the Narnia tales." Colin Manlove, in The Chronicles of Narnia added: "Lindskoog's success is in enriching and deepening our understanding of the implications of the Narnia stories.... She shows how the books are part of a far larger fabric of imagery and idea.... It is small wonder that C.S. Lewis valued this book."

Editorial Reviews

Ilene Cooper
Educators who use the Narnia chronicles in their classrooms or even adults who are fans of the series should find this book of interest. Lindskoog, has expanded and updated her earlier book first published in the 1950s. Part 1 explores the Christian theology that underlies the books and how Lewis' concept of God and nature affected his writing. Part 2 looks at the books individually. Each of those chapters contains questions for children to think about, vocabulary and factual quizzes.
