Narnia - Christian Themes


The Chronicles of Narnia books remain popular many years after they are written. Some people wonder why. Some people are able to see the way that C S Lewis, the author shares his thoughts and the Christian semblance.

In the book, The Magician’s Nephew, Narnia is a black void. A place so dark, one is unable to see any surrounding things. So, let’s look at the lion, Aslan. Aslan, is the creator of the world of Narnia. In this dark void, Aslan commences to sing. A clear, sweet sound only heard at this moment in time. This song brings forth light, and this light brings a beautiful, new world.

This new world which Aslan creates is Narnia. (or some might say that Earth is now created) Everything is fresh and clean and here 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.

Next, let’s look at the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Now, 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, leads people by force (not a sign of a true leader) she is the White Witch and is a pretender to the throne of Narnia. 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. Why would she (the great Queen Jardis) who thinks she is so wonderful, powerful an all knowing be afraid of people rejoicing in the birth of Christ?

A most touching scene in the movie shows Aslan, the lion, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe giving 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.



Note: The Narnia books are from my private library.
