Journey Into Narnia

Cover
Hope Publishing House, 1998 - 227 Seiten
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.

Über den Autor (1998)

Kathryn Lindskoog plunged into an independent academic-honors project on C. S. Lewis in 1954, met him in 1956, & has been writing & teaching about him ever since. Although crippled with progressive multiple sclerosis, she has taught literature courses at several colleges as well as New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary & Fuller Seminary. Lewis originally opened the door to George MacDonald & Dante for her, & that has now led to this extraordinary array of discoveries about all three.
