Lewis for the Ages

Have you read The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis? I asked myself this too, and although I had read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, I realized I hadn’t read the whole series. So now I’m reading straight through all of them for the first time. If you’re not familiar with his children’s stories, you’ll find they’re enjoyable reading for adults as well. There’s enough mystery, battles between good and evil and weird characters to keep everyone’s interest. And Christian values are expressed throughout, including a huge, golden lion that obviously portrays Jesus. I like to read between the lines to discover what Lewis is expressing in his choice of characters and themes. If you want more adult reading, try Miracles or Mere Christianity by Lewis. He’s written more than 30 books and if you’re not familiar with his writings, it’s time to get started! He’s a must-read Christian author.
