055 – Third Layer to Narnia pt. 2
June 21, 2012
Previously I mentioned Dr. Michael Ward’s book The Narnia Code…but what exactly is the secret code?
Many people consider Lewis’s Narnia stories to be great books on their own, and others enjoy the Christian parallels they have. If you’ve read all seven stories you may have wondered why they were so different and why it seems Lewis had no unifying theme other than the often vague Christian element.
First in his scholarly book Planet Narnia and then in The Narnia Code we are told Lewis used what’s known as medieval cosmology to design a hidden layer to the stories. Lewis even used the characteristics of the seven medieval planets to communicate the Christian aspect in a deeper way.
If you want to learn more listen to the upcoming special podcast series I created with Dr. Michael Ward and special co-host Dr. Holly Ordway. .
