Kat Webster This is one of the greatest books ive ever read.


Lora When I read this in my young days, I didn;'t even realize there were other books in the series! That took years to hear about, and I don't know why. Maybe I just wasn't listening. But the book makes my hands shake and my voice crack when I read it to the kids and I usually end up in tears, too. What a book!


Jacqueline Rhoades I had to laugh when, some years ago, a group of parents protested this book in our school library - witches and sorcery, oh my! I tried to explain that Lewis was a Christian writer, but they were having none of it. Imagine if I'd tried to explain about the Christ allegory! It's a wonderful book whether you read it as a Christian or not and it's one of those that changes as you grow and mature. It's worth the re-read each and every time. Thanks for reminding me.

The first time I read this book was during 5th grade, and since I went to a public school where there is separation of church and state, I didn't get the connection between this book and Christianity the first time either. And yes I go to church; in fact, I made my profession of faith this past summer. I realized the connection after one of my long-time friends Randy explained to me that Aslan is portraying Jesus. So it is hard to see the connection the first time through the book. Don't get frustrated when people don't see it.

Hey I first heard of this book in public school too! When kids were off at a school trip people including me had to see a movie. My sixth grade teacher played us the BBC film version of this book. Little did I know the story had Christian themes. I too was a church goer and if I had known that years ago when I saw that in school I probably would have appreciated seeing that film a little more. It wasn't a bad adaptation either. It wasn't like the same-old "Hollywood" type of production values but it still was good.
