Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Educators who use the Narnia chronicles in their classrooms, or even those adults who just are fans of the series, should find this book of interest. Lindskoog, has expanded and updated her book The Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land: The Theology of C. S. Lewis Expressed in His Fantasies for Children, which was first published in the 1950s. Part 1 of the book explores the Christian theology that underlies the books and how Lewis' concept of God and nature affected his writing. Part 2 looks at the seven books individually. Each of those chapters contains questions for children to think about, vocabulary, and factual quizzes. Some of those "just for fun" quizzes are on the simplistic side, but teachers might use the activities as a jumping-off place for their own ideas. Pen-and-ink drawings enliven the text. Ilene Cooper

An updated and expanded classic study of C.S. Lewis's Narnia series with a study guide and a chronological review of the seven books. Biblical parallels and applications highlighted are for personal reading pleasure but provide pracical helps for teachers, parents and ministers as well.

An introduction to the Narnia series with study guide and chronological review. Biblical parallels and applications highlighted are practical helps for teachers, parents and ministers.

A deepened appreciation of Narnia--The first half of this volume, "The Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land" is a masterpiece. It is like a theology of Lewis' Narnian tales. Lindskoog is not just another fan of Narnia, she is an insightful scholar. She demonstrates her deep knowledge of Lewis' other work while examining Lewis' views on Creation, Humanity and God as expressed in the Narnian stories.
I must make mention here that one should read Lewis' books at least once all the way through before reading this book...a lot is given away (The conclusion is quoted within the first fifty pages). So don't spoil Narnia for yourself...read the books before you read this.
Part two is a book-by-book look at the stories. It has trivia questions, things to ponder and benedictions based on each story (I love the one for The Magician's Nephew). The most startling thing I took away from part two is how much Lewis owed and made allusion to E. Nesbit's children's stories within the Narnian books.
The Chronicles of Narnia are some of my all-time favorite books. Mrs. Lindskoog has added to my appreciation of them. I recommend this book highly...may the Great Lion be with you. --NotATameLion Amazon.com reviewer

A useful book for teaching: Lindskoog's "Journey" is proving a useful tool for teaching the "Chronicles of Narnia" to middle school age students. The "Chronicles" form the backbone of our Sunday School curriculum. Ms. Lindskoog provides excellent background. Her personal knowledge of both the "Chronicles" and Lewis would take years to duplicate, if it could be done at all. She has provided questions and quizzes to stimulate discussion. Those who have read Lewis' "Chronicles" understand that these children's stories have the depth to interest adults. Ms. Lindskoogs guidance also serves well for an adult discussion of these stories. There is perhaps some reluctance to use a work of fiction to teach biblical truths. Ms. Lindskoog is clear in describing Lewis' theology and his literary sources. She deals directly with the question of what to do when a child confuses Aslan with Jesus. –Amazon.com reviewer

Kathryn Lindskoog is one heck of an author. I have greatly enjoyed reading her books. Journey into Narnia is no exception. In fact, I believe she brings the most passion to her work here.

Lindskoog is not just another fan of Narnia, she is an insightful scholar.

This book is fabulous! It explains all of the sybolic and religous meaning in the books and has a lot of interesting facts about Lewis and Narnia. It also includes the ages of the children in each book and has the recipies for the foods in the books, like Turkish Delight and alot of other stuff. This is a great book for anyone who has ever read the Chronicles. I highly reccomend it.

Format: Paperback
Chronicles of Narnia is a set of books that adults readers want to reflect on, to figure out what it all means. Lindskoog knows these books at many levels---the concrete and story-line connections across stories, how the connections were put there by the authors who did not write the books in chronological order, and the connections between story elements and philosophical and religious themes. All adult readers of the Chronicles should also read this book. Teachers who want to include any of the Narnian books in their classrooms will really benefit from the insights and the instructional aids provided by Lindskoog.
