"This excellent book makes me want to spend my next Advent in Narnia. Haverkamp's week-by-week guide is great for families, as well as for adults of any age who are looking for a delightful way to reflect upon the Advent season." --Paul Jarzembowski, Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Ministries, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
"Heidi Haverkamp writes that Advent is a borderland. Her book is a reliable map for exploring this border country. She leads us with a lively faith that moves from the world of flat practicality and cynicism to the possibility of one filled with delight and risk and enchantment, one in which Christ is 'on the move' in our lives." --The Right Rev. Jeffrey Lee, Bishop, The Episcopal Diocese of Chicago
"Heidi Haverkamp 's Advent in Narnia is both delightful and profound: delightful because it provides a vehicle for Christians of all ages to experience the joys of C.S. Lewis's classic fantasy; profound because it explores Advent's themes of hope and expectation with real theological depth."--The Very Reverend Gary R. Hall, Dean, Washington National Cathedral
From the Inside Flap
With its enchanting themes of light and darkness, temptation and sin, forgiveness and hope--and even an appearance by Father Christmas--C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe naturally enhances the Advent season of reflection. As the reader anticipates the glorious coming of Christmas, Advent in Narnia inspires us to consider the holiday season from a new perspective.
These twenty-eight devotions feature Scripture passages and excerpts from C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, prompting meditation on Advent themes such as grace, love, and sacrifice. Questions for reflection are included with each devotion, ultimately guiding the reader to know God better while journeying through Narnia. Four sessions for small group discussion, along with information on creating a "Narnia Night" for families, are also provided to deepen your church's Advent experience.

I suspect that many people might presume that this book is geared toward families, since the Chronicles of Narnia are children's books. While there are wonderful, kid-friendly suggestions for a "Narnia night", it's really more for adults. I think the perfect way for families to use it would be to spend the weeks of Advent reading the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe aloud to children, and then by reading these beautiful, rich reflections with the older youth and adults of the household. (There is one devotion that acknowledges the "truth" about Santa.) That being said, our elementary-school aged daughter still enjoyed reading and discussing the devotions each night as we lit our Advent candles.
A wonderful gift for Christians who yearn for spiritual sustenance during the weeks of Advent, especially those who are fans of the Chronicles of Narnia.
Thank you for the gorgeous Advent book, and for the inspiration to sit down and read these books from cover to cover to glean even more Truisms and comparisons from the text.
