"Joe Rigney is a writer who really knows how to love something. I am glad that he loves Narnia." -- Douglas Wilson, author, What I Learned in Narnia and Father Hunger
"The immediate effect of Live Like a Narnian: I want to. Written with a fun, lively, muscular style, it succeeds both as a work of popular literary criticism and as a readable call to follow Aslan all the way to the end." -- Owen Strachan, author, Risky Gospel: Abandon Fear and Build Something Awesome
"This book is stuffed full of the must-share Narnian "Aha!" moments that keep you turning just one more page. Even the moments you've only whispered to yourself about. I'm betting that Live Like a Narnian will prove to be a trusted companion to future Narnians who will read and re-read the Chronicles for generations." -- Gloria Furman, author, Glimpses of Grace, daughter of Eve, and a queen of Narnia
"Live Like a Narnian has the quality that all good writing strives for: it is both insightful and delightful. Joe Rigney captures not only the power and poignancy of C. S. Lewis's beloved Narnia series, but also its fun and merriment." -- Devin Brown, author, A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C. S. Lewis
"I have long awaited a brief book that labors to excavate the major theological themes in Narnia in a simple and clear format, a book that calls on Lewis's non-fiction writings as a commentary to illuminate his Narnian stories, and most of all, a book about that bright gold creature more terrible and more beautiful than anything in all of Narnia and this world combined. The wait is over. Live Like a Narnian by Joe Rigney is a masterful achievement." -- Tony Reinke, author, Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books
From the Back Cover
Drawing upon Lewis's other writings and the Chronicles themselves, Joe Rigney shows the intricate and sometimes subtle ways that Lewis intended his beloved fairy stories to shape our hearts and minds. In doing so, he commends Lewis's Chronicles as a fruitful part of Christian discipleship, so that in reading the Narnian stories, breathing Narnian air, and seeking to live like Narnians, we are wonderfully transformed into the image of Jesus Christ--the Great Lion and High King Above All Kings.
