The Narnia Code

Most of you are well aware of the Biblical references made in the movie, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. You have the representation of Jesus in the character of Aslan the lion, who sacrifices his own life for that of Edmund and comes back at the end to rid Narnia of the White Witch and restore the land from it's perpetual winter.

However are there more references to the Bible in the other six books?

In the book, The Narnia Code by Michael Ward, he unlocks the secrets of C.S. Lewis and the secret of the seven heavens through the Chronicle of Narnia books.

I was surprised at all the references I missed in Prince Caspian as well as the up and coming The Voyage of the Dawn Treader this Christmas. What a wonderful mystery that C. S. Lewis wove through his adventures in Narnia for those willing to seek and unlock the treasures within. For example in Prince Caspian, the book is all about war and the tools used in battle much like the spiritual battle that we all must face each day. I completely missed that reference all together.

In this book, you are taken step by step through all seven books by also the reasons why C. S. Lewis wrote the books the way he did. Now this series provides even more opportunity to discuss with my kids what the Biblical references are within each film and book. I received this wonderful book compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and can tell you it rates 5 out of 5 stars!!

This is a must have resource for anyone who has the series of the Chronicles of Narnia already! It is available in paperback, eBook and DVD formats. For more information on this book, the author and where to purchase a copy for your own, click on the title below:
