The book is structured as follows: Chapter 1: a discussion of Lewis's life
Chapter 2: how Lewis wrote the series and exposition on Lewis's views on the genre
Chapter 3: synopsis of each book in the series. These summaries were very well written.
Chapter 4: description of the land of Narnia
Chapter 5: in-depth review of the character of Aslan. One of the best chapters in the book, Sammons explores the symbol of Aslan in each book and His role as the moving force in the plot
Chapter 6: discussion of the good/neutral characters of Narnia
Chapter 7: discussion of the evil characters of Narnia
Chapter 8: Christian concepts in the books
The book also includes an index of character and place names, but the reader would be advised to obtain a copy of "Companion To Narnia" by Paul F. Ford instead.
Sammons explores the question whether the Narnia Chronicles are allegory for Christian faith. She is not "preachy" but seems to honestly describe the faith and the symbols within the novels. She does a fine job in providing quotes from C.S. Lewis's writings to back her points.
