The Chronicles of Narnia: Wholesome Entertainment Or Gateway to Paganism?

Front Cover
THIS VOLUME EXAMINES THE LIFE, WORKS, AND INFLUENCE OF C.S. LEWIS (1898-1963). THIS IS NO MERE ACADEMIC EXERCISE. FOR YEARS LEWIS HAS BEEN HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM IN THE COLLEGE AND SEMINARY CLASSROOMS. NOW HOWEVER, HE IS COMING INTO THE HEARTS OF ANOTHER GENERATION OF UNSUSPECTING PEOPLE WORLDWIDE BY VIRTUE OF THE NEW MOVIE THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE, AND ITS SCHEDULED SEQUELS. WHILE MOST EVAN GELICALS ARE OVERJOYED AT LEWIS' GROWING POPULARITY, SOME ARE CONCERNED REGARDING WHAT LEWIS REALLY BELIEVED AND TAUGHT - ISSUES THAT HAVE NOT BEEN ADEQUATELY ADDRESSED. AS A PRACTICAL MATTER, WE SHOULD ALWAYS EXAMINE WHAT AN AUTHOR STOOD FOR PRIOR TO ENDORSING HIS WORKS AND HELPING TO EXPAND HIS INFLUENCE. HENCE, THIS BOOK, WHICH IS AN EFFORT TO INVESTIGATE THE INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS NOW BECOME SOMEWHAT OF AN ICON AMONG AMERICAN EVANGELICALS, AS WELL AS OTHERS. BECUASE THE BIBLE COMMANDS US TO, PROVE ALL THINGS; HOLD FAST THAT WHICH IS GOOD. ABSTAIN FROM ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL, WE BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE SCRIPTURAL WARRANT FOR SUCH AN INVESTIGATION.
