Narnia: A magical land full of wonder and excitement. A place where you will meet Aslan, the bravest of lions, and a beautiful but wicked Witch. There are lots of other fabulous creatures too: giants and dwarfs and animals that talk. It all begins when four children -- Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy -- discover a strange old wardrobe. Stepping inside, they find that it's stranger still, because behind all the fur coats there is a wondrous land of trees and mountains, all glistening with snow. The White Witch has spread an icy winter everywhere. Only Aslan can defeat her and reverse her wicked spell. The children must find the lion before it is too late. If they fail, the Witch will make them her prisoners forever. In the fifty years since it was written, The Lion, the Witch And the Wardrobe has become one of the great classics of children's literature. Now younger children can share the magical experience, stepping into a world of enchantment that will forever lure them back.

The Chronicles of Narnia series has entertained millions of readers, both children and adults, since the appearance of the first book in 1950. Here, scholars turn the lens of philosophy on these timeless tales. Engagingly written for a lay audience, these essays consider a wealth of topics centered on the ethical, spiritual, mythic, and moral resonances in the adventures of Aslan, the Pevensie children, and the rest of the colorful cast. Do the spectacular events in Narnia give readers a simplistic view of human choice and decision making? Does Aslan offer a solution to the problem of evil? What does the character of Susan tell readers about Lewis’s view of gender? How does Lewis address the Nietzschean “master morality” embraced by most of the villains of the Chronicles? With these and a wide range of other questions, this provocative book takes a fresh view of the world of Narnia and expands readers’ experience of it.

Renowned C. S. Lewis scholar Kathryn Lindskoog has here expanded and updated her classic study of Lewis's Narnia series originally titled, "The Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land: The Theology of C.S. Lewis Expressed in his fantasies for Children." Now with the addition of a study guide, including a look at the chronological order of the series of the seven books, the "Journey into Narnia" is filled with abundant and fresh new background information that not only puts the series in its context but explains many of the English terms unfamiliar to the American reader. Ms. Lindskoog provides many Biblical parallels which illumine the plot. These concise insights and applications are designed for personal reading pleasure as well as being practical helpers for teachers, parents and ministers. When C. S. Lewis read the first draft of this manuscript, he commented, "You are in the center of the target everywhere. For one thing, you know my work better than anyone else I've met; certainly better than I do myself.... You (alone of the critics I've met) realize the connection or even the unity of all the books-scholarly, fantastic, theological-and make me appear a single author, not a man who impersonates half a dozen authors, which is what I seem to most. This wins really very high marks indeed." This important text of Lewis scholarship has been copied, widely used but never surpassed.
