The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis

Title: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Author: C.S. Lewis

Format: Hardback



The style was just laid back, even for a children's book. There wasn't much to think about on the surface, but so much symbolism.



White Witch: Obviously by the end of the book, the White Witch was sin/the devil, temptation, in particular, if I'm reading this right. She represented everything that was bad.

Aslan: Here, the lion is Jesus, willing to sacrifice himself to save Edmund in particular. He is forgiving and good and willing to give whatever he can to save others, even his life to make amends for their shortcomings and failings (sins).

Edmund: As much as a person can represent another person, Edmund is Judas. He is the sneaky one that betrays his own family, but ultimately, Aslan is still willing to die to save from the grasp of the White Witch.

Pillar of Stone: This is the cross that we are familiar with Jesus being crucified on just as Aslan is sacrificed in Edmund's place on the pillar.



For people looking for a Christian message within a fantasy book, this is really great. If you are not a Christian, but still looking for a good fantasy story that isn't too complicated, this can be great for you too. Perfect for children of any age and adults as well.
