A Christmas Classic : The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

“The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” known by many children and adults around the world from the Disney movie released in December 2005, has become a Christmas classic. Based on the first in a series of seven books in C. S. Lewis’s "Chronicles of Narnia," it was written in the 1950s at the height of Lewis’s career as an Oxford professor.

Lewis became one of the acknowledged Christian apologists of the twentieth century, spending most of his life writing about faith. Lewis wrote that the story of Aslan was meant to be a retelling of the “actual incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection” of Jesus as described in the Gospels.
