Once again, we’ve been blessed to have Dr. Dwain Tissell take us on a journey through a part of C.S. Lewis’ life! In this new course, Dr. Tissell explores each book of the Chronicles of Narnia and helps us discover how they carry God’s deep truth. He also addresses ways to talk to children about the stories as you read them together!
What can we learn from the most beloved children’s novels of the last century? The Chronicles of Narnia is not only compelling from a literary or entertainment level, but it carries in them deep truths of God’s timeless word. It is for this reason these stories are still so compelling today, even though our world has changed through upheaval and discovery. As a pastor and adjunct seminary professor, I’ve come to love these interactions, and it is exciting to see the truth of what Jesus planned for us ages ago come alive even in these days. The big idea for this course is to awaken the wonder, longing, and value of the Christian worldview that is not only portrayed but experienced in The Chronicles of Narnia. My prayer is that we will find ourselves, like the eight children in the Narnia stories, pulled into another world. And that we would know the real “Aslan,” the Lion of Judah.
