054 – Third Layer to Narnia pt. 1
June 19, 2012
Nearly everyone is aware of the hidden Christian element in The Chronicles of Narnia, but did you know there could be yet another secret layer to them?
First published in 2008, Planet Narnia is a scholarly work by Dr. Michael Ward that provides a very detailed look at what he calls “the seven heavens in the imagination of C.S. Lewis.” This lead to a BBC TV special in 2010 and that same year a book aimed at lay audiences entitled The Narnia Code.
In all these ventures Dr. Ward presents a previously undisclosed link that connects all seven Narnia stories. While not all Lewis scholars have publically agreed with him, some who expressed skepticism to his view changed their minds after examining his perspective.
Have you read either book or seen the DVD of the TV special? Tell me about by leaving a comment below!
