Exploring Aslan’s Country: PDF Download


The Chronicles of Narnia are some of the most beloved children’s books of all time. But are they really just for children? Or is there more in Narnia than meets the eye? This twelve-week course will examine The Chronicles book by book as powerful stories designed to shape the hearts and minds of their readers. In the process, we will explore C.S. Lewis’ motivation for writing The Chronicles, as well as probe the connections between The Chronicles and Lewis’ other writings. From characters to plot, from symbolism to structure, we will seek to ‘breathe the air’ of Narnia in hopes of both contemplating and enjoying the Christ-saturated world conceived by Lewis. Our goal will be to heed the words of Aslan: “This was the very reason you were brought into Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you might know me better there.”
