Of course it is an incredible book. While at BYU I was in the children's theatre production of LWW. The theatre department put on a forum where professors spoke about their various academic and religious insights to the book. The most interesting was a C.S. Lewis scholar who said that this book was not meant to be an allegory of the Christ-story, but a "suppose-itory." This book was not meant to replace the story of the atonement. Instead, it was a musing on Lewis' part as to how the atonement might have played out in another world with different characters.

Frank Acland Yes, I read Lewis say the same thing. I read this book as a child and had no idea it had anything to do with Christianity. It was just a great story to me, and very memorable after all these years.
