From the Author:

C.S. Lewis & Narnia For Dummies is a guide and traveling companion as you journey into the life of C.S. Lewis, the enchanted world of Narnia, and his other classic fiction and Christian apologetics works.

This book illuminates the underlying symbolism in Narnia and examines the many parallels between The Chronicles of Narnia and Christianity. C.S. Lewis didn’t dream up a master theological plan and then set about writing fairy tales to fit into that framework. Instead, he simply aimed to tell a good tale. However, because his Christian faith was such an integral part of him, the Christian gospel "came bounding into it." As a result, all the major questions in Narnia are answered by Lewis’s Christian faith: How did Narnia begin? How is sin introduced into the enchanted world? How can traitorous Edmund be restored? How do the children and Narnians live "by faith" in Aslan? How active is Aslan in the lives of his followers? How is Narnia going to end? In this book, I explore these questions and many more.

Beyond Narnia, the book also tackles other great fiction and apologetic books, such as The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Problem of Pain, and The Abolition of Man. I don’t merely survey or summarize these works. Instead, I dive into these meaty and often challenging writings and make them approachable and accessible to normal readers.

Finally, the book explores the fascinating life of Lewis, his relationship with Tolkien and the Inklings, and the story on how this died-in-the-wool atheist was transformed into arguably the most influential Christian spokesman since Martin Luther.
