Christian Themes In The Narnia Chronicles

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

C S Lewis, the author, wrote the Chronicles of Narnia books. The books are as popular today as when written more than fifty years earlier. Why, people ask, is this so?

First, letís consider the lion, Aslan. Aslan, is the creator of the world of Narnia. In the book, The Magicianís Nephew, Narnia is a black void. A place so dark, one is unable to see any surrounding things. In this dark void, Aslan commences to sing. A sweet sound never heard earlier and not since. This song brings forth light. This light brings a new world.

This new world which Aslan creates is Narnia. Or can we say Earth? Everything is fresh and clean. The animals and people coexist in peace. Aslan gives some animals the ability to talk. He anoints a simple, not rich, human couple as the King and Queen of Narnia.

Letís move onto the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The world of Narnia is in the evil hands of Queen Jardis, the White Witch. She has Narnia, Earth, in a deep freeze. C. S. Lewis takes poetic license. He portrays the world as freezing cold instead of burning hot.

Queen Jardis, the White Witch is a pretender to the throne of Narnia. The number one reason we know is she is not the true leader, is that she leads people by force. During her one hundred-year reign, she does not allow the appearance of Father Christmas. Father Christmas, to loyal Christians, is a reminder of the birth of baby Jesus. If one is so great, why be afraid of people rejoicing in the birth of Christ?

Aslan, the lion, in one of the most moving scenes in the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe gives his life for the sinner, Edmund Pevensie. Here, Aslan portrays Jesus, the savior who gives his life for the sinners of the world. And thankfully, like Christ, he is resurrected.

The Chronicles of Narnia books are very well written not only as children stories but as lessons to Christians everywhere. Share the books with the children in your life. If they are too young to read the books, take time and read them. Read the books for your own pleasure. There are so many Christian themes in the books. Share with your Bible study class. It is good way to discuss Bible passages.

Roar! A Christian Family Guide to th Chronicles of Narnia is a great book for the family interested in studying The Chronicles of Narnia series. The book is written by the Christian couple, Heather and David Kopp. It is complete with study guide, related bible passages, glossary, plus much more.
