A noble lion, hobbits; all are characters and settings in classic novels for children and adults--filled with imagination and replete with biblical imagery!
Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and the meek and humble hobbits assigned to save the world, with several storylines alluding to themes from the Bible.
Or the allegory in C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia depicting a noble lion who’s killed and resurrected to save his kingdom.
In the Last Battle, Lucy says, “In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world,”
referencing the story of Jesus’ birth found in the gospel of Luke.
When C.S. Lewis was asked to suggest an approach to spark the creation of Christian literature that might influence a generation, he said: “I have no recipe, no tablets. . .the New Testament shows the greatest variety. God has shown us that he can use any instrument.”
