Near the start of this book Carl McColman very helpfully distinguishes the two words 'spirituality' and 'mysticism'.

I read the Narnia books to my daughter when she was learning to read. When we started she'd work her way through the first page of a chapter and I'd read the rest. By the time we finished she was reading most of the chapter's herself.

I'll admit that I never thought much about the series' spirituality back then. I got Aslan, of course. It wasn't till I was older that I realized and Carl's wonderful book explained The Lion, the Mouse, and the Dawn Treader spirituality well. I re-read the S.S. Lew
