By Shirley Priscilla Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 21, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Narnia Beckons is truly a wonderful work. Packed full of information, photos and stories about C.S. Lewis, his life, his writings and some inside information on characters in his book that I found fascinating. I read this book in one sitting and reread it just for the enjoyment of the read.

I was literally charmed by this work. If I could put it in simple words, this is not a heavy read, but a delightful run through of a master writer, a model Christian, dotted with information that will enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the works of C.S.Lewis. A definite must have!

Format: Hardcover
This beautifully illustrated hardcover is the perfect gift this Christmas for fans of C.S. Lewis's The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

Having reviewed the other three books on C.S. Lewis published this autumn by Broadman & Holman, I can't help thinking that this one is the culmination of the others. Filled with lovely, black & white illustrations of the story characters, as well as fascinating photographs about Lewis and his time, this is one of those books that not only will look great on your coffee table, but will definitely attract lots of attention as well.

The book is a treasure of interesting facts, quotes and anecdotes--in sum, everything you ever wanted to know about C.S. Lewis's most memorable work. It is divided into four parts. The first part offers a profile of Lewis's life; the second part dives into the fantastic world of Narnia; the third part looks at some of the most fascinating hidden meanings and allusions in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe; the fourth part offers a glimpse into this work through the eyes of television and the movies.

Though the authors' language is laced with a heavy Christian tone, this is a work that can be enjoyed by anybody, no matter their religion. Intriguing, informative, and a pleasure to look at, Narnia Beckons is a valuable reference book, especially for schools and libraries.

I bought this for an adult niece who loves the movie, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I thought I'd skim through it before I sent it. Well, it is too good to skim! If you love the books, love C.S.Lewis' writing and want to understand the connection between his faith and the Narnia series, you will enjoy this book.

C. S. Lewis was able to communicate the mysteries of the Kingdom of God by following the example of Jesus Christ who spoke in parables. His writings were uniquely inspired by the Holy Spirit who is the master communicator reaching beyond the veils that blind the eyes and minds of mankind in a world of darkness. The sword of Truth alone is able to divide between darkness and light, and set the captives free. Ted Baehr and his son Jim are to be commended for creating a magnificent synopsis of the life and literary works of C. S. Lewis in "Narnia Beckons." We thank the entire Baehr family for the great influence they contribute to the realm of communication.
