FM 740 Rethinking Narnia: The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia have delighted readers for more than sixty years. One title in the series is one of the top ten bestselling books of all time; popular movies have been based on them. C. S. Lewis, their author, described them as books that sneak theology “Past watchful dragons.” This class will focus on what Lewis meant by that and how it works. After the introduction, we will be discussing one Narnia book per week, in the order of publication. This class also includes a day trip to the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, a museum and study center at Wheaton College that focuses on C. S. Lewis and his friends.
