chronicles of narnia

When the Lion Shows Up

I’m currently reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by the amazing C.S. Lewis. It has been a really fun way for me to escape from the realities of my world and into the fantasies of the land of Narnia. I’m beginning to realize though that I have that quite backwards.

As I read more and more I am overtaken by the way that Lewis paints the story of the gospel in such an incredible and inviting way. In the story, the youngest brother, Edmund unfortunately ends up in the captivity of the evil Queen. You see, the land of Narnia has been cursed for a very long time, since King Aslan left the scene. All of Narnia is in a constant season of Winter, without ever reaching the time of Christmas.
