ideaExchange | Jamie Howison goes to Narnia

While the novels, essays and published lectures of C.S. Lewis continue to be widely read some forty-six years after his death, it is entirely possible that it will be his series of children’s books, The Chronicles of Narnia, which will have the deepest impact and the longest staying power of all of his work.

In this presentation – originally delivered in the fall of 2005 as an ideaExchange session – Jamie Howison offers insight into Lewis’s project as a writer of books for children, and gives points of access for reflecting on how these books – and specifically The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe – reflect a theological view of substantial depth and nuance.
