    One thought on “Finding God in the Land of Narnia”

    1. 4.75 I really enjoyed diving back into the world of Narnia and seeing all the connections between the bible and Narnias world and characters I knew when i first saw Narnia it had symbolism of Jesus but this story took the world and its iconic images and described all the depth and meaing behind it I loved it.

    2. Amazing I wanted to read this book and Finding God in the LOTR , but the library doesn t have either of them Thankfully, my church library had this one Bruner and Ware take you through each of the seven Narnia books and expound on the Christian, Biblical elements found within each By no means do they cover all of the symbolism, the books is only 175 pages, including the introduction and afterthoughts Each chapter is only a few pages in length and end with a reflection You could almost use this b [...]

    3. Es triste decir adi s.El a o pasado me desped de cada uno de los personajes de las Cr nicas de Narnia y me doli demasiado el coraz n Ahora con este libro fue como reencontrarte con amigos y ahora al fin me he despedido de estos personajes, pero duele.A n que fue hermoso ver el trasfondo de C S Lewis que dej en estos libros.

    4. This wasn t as enlightening as I d hoped The lessons are fairly shallow and the connections pretty obvious I was hoping for something deeper, and was disappointed, as I was with Finding God in the Lord of the Rings It contains only a small sampling of the biblical truths in Narnia the authors missed many opportunities Even the ones they chose don t seem to be the strongest examples It s of a devotional than a book for study.It covers all 7 Narnia books, but has only 3 or 4 short chapters from e [...]

    5. If you wanted a book that poorly recapped all the highlights from C.S Lewis s excellent Chronicles of Narnia and another tacked on page of how it connects to various aspects of Christianity this book is for you Also for you if you wanted to know how the great epic Russian novel War and Peace ends thanks a lot, it was on my to read shelf If those weren t enough reasons for you, the obvious parallels the author draws Narnia being created by the breath of Aslan, Aslan as Jesus, the real Narnia as h [...]

    6. A somewhat simple overview of some Christian themes in the Narnia series Some of it was too simplistic, chapters were too short to go into any depth Some of it seemed to contradict itself in its theology I don t think Lewis believed in decision theology, for instance I just can t get over one line that kind of ruined the book for me God is a lover, not a rapist That s just offensive The Bible says that no one comes to the Father unless he is drawn to Him by God That s not even close to rape And, [...]

    7. C S Lewis made it clear that the Chronicles of Narnia were not written as, and were never intended to be read as, allegories Rather, the story grew out of a supposition, an imagination of what another fallen world, its history, and its redemption might look like Bruner and Ware, while maintaining an obvious respect for Lewis s original intent, select brief passages no than a sentence or two from the Narnia books and explore applications to real life, drawing connections to holy Scripture, Lewis [...]

    8. A fantastic devotional for those who already love Narnia, as well as those who are interested in unlocking the deeper magic beneath the stories, this book is divided into thematic chapters that pull from various Narnia stories to illuminate the spiritual truths inside them I thoroughly enjoyed it and even wept at times, as the authors write tenderly and truthfully about Narnia in ways that I find I need to read even an adult The book works beautifully as a devotional to read on your own or with [...]

    9. Hello Blessings in Christ.In my opinion, i believe that is an excellent bookshleves because explain all the fantastics scenes and theirs relationship with many spiritual topics of the Word of God The Autors, are people that perceive aspects of the christian life and the Presence of God from the scriptures of the C.S Lewis the creator of the C N I can saw a special thing chapter by chapter and is a little phrases in the final, such as a abstract that contains the central idea of the chapter, is w [...]

    10. C.S Lewis never ceases to amaze me As a die hard fan of Narnia, I enjoy any work that delves deeper into the tales that delighted me during childhood and later guided me in my quest for Truth Kurt Bruner s book offered some new insights that I had not previously encountered in my Narnia reading, specifically on the roles Desire and Grace play in our lives and in guiding our faith journey Like any true Narnia fan, Bruner ends his book expressing the desire we all feel when we finish a Narnia nov [...]

    11. This was a quick and easy read but interesting It examined various Christian themes found in the Narnia series beyond the obvious resurrection allegory and discussed C.S Lewis conversion from atheist to agnostic to Christian Because I have read the Narnia series multiple times it was easy for me to follow the various examples I don t know if it would have made much sense to those less familiar with the story.

    12. Though I already knew some of the allegories, it was neat to read someone else s take on it I also liked how the author would link it in to some of C.S Lewis other writings which I haven t gotten around to reading yet, e.g The Great Divorce etc and I enjoyed that it covered than just The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

    13. With the possible exception of J.R.R Tolkien, no twentieth century writer masterfully married the enchantment of fantasy with the enrichment of faith The Narnia stories are like a meal with the nourishment of meat and vegetables but taste of cake and candy Kurt Brunner, Finding God in the Land of Narnia

    14. This is a book that I picked up as a source while writing a paper on TLTWTW my senior year of high school It makes some interesting points, but there is not a lot of mind blowing material in it Just some interesting stuff for Christian and maybe non Christian Narnia lovers.

    15. Not an analysis of the Chronicles of Narnia like a reading guide of where to find spiritual points and how to relate them to Christian spirituality Not bad as a reading guide, but not what I was looking for.

    16. I love C.S Lewis and I love the Narnia books so I had high hopes But this book provided no new insights for me and it really sounded like someone s master s thesis or an academic paper Listened to about half of it on audio and then gave up.

    17. Because C S Lewis is a favorite Christian author, the comparisons between his series with scripture seems a lot evident as the authors travel through the Narnia tales Worth a read.

    18. Not bad I would ve liked this book better if the chapters were longer, not short little Sunday School lessons.

    19. The Chronicles of Narnia was such an amazing series to read with my kid I loved this book it helped us all to see so much of the symbolism in these beautiful tales.

    20. Excellent book that walks you through the Chronicles of Narnia books and points out the Christian messages weaved throughout the series.

    21. I enjoyed seeing the various points Bruner wrote about It was enriching and not stuffy, making it all the better.
