The Heavens are Telling the Glory of God: C.S. Lewis, Narnia, and the Planets
Wed, 29 May 2019
Tolkien thought Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia were written in a slap-dash manner, and many have shared his view, describing the books as a ‘hotch-potch’. Other readers have argued that Tolkien was wrong and that the Chronicles have an underlying coherence, pointing to such possible unifying themes as the seven sacraments or the seven deadly sins. But these explanations haven’t proven persuasive and Narnia's inner meaning has remained a puzzle. Michael Ward has finally solved the mystery. In this talk, drawing on his best-selling and award-winning book Planet Narnia, he shows what Lewis was really up to in these seven classic stories.
