As I read for the first time The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe I was amazed by all the Christian symbolism within the story. I was impressed by C. S. Lewis’s ability to take theology and transform it into a children’s novel. One that would open the door for generations of nonbelievers to become intrigued by a story about a world full of fictional characters that is actually based on Bible stories. Aslan is one of the many fictional characters in Narnia and I would like to examine his role in the story, who he represents and determine if his portrayal of his Biblical counterpart was accurately portrayed. In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) by C. S. Lewis, Mr. Beaver says, as he is referring to Aslan, “Course he isn’t safe.
Within the renown fantasy novel, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, author C.S. Lewis chronicles the adventure of four siblings through the mythical Narnia. For the duration of the story, the maturation of the Pevensie children is depicted through their dealings with adversity and difficult decisions in their bid to save Narnia.

Lewis wrote some of his novels in a way to not only educate the world that selflessness will always win but also the fact that selfishness will always lose. One of Lewis’s notable works -- “Till We Have Faces” -- clearly demonstrates how selfishness loses but selflessness wins. In “Till We Have Faces” by C.S. Lewis, Lewis portrays Orual as a villain as a result of her jealous actions which not only resulted in Psyche’s exile but also Psyche being forced to complete difficult tasks in order to regain her favor; however, Orual’s actions highlight the hidden message that Lewis is trying to convey - jealous/selfish love
She makes a strong point about animal rights: “animal rights and human rights go hand in hand. Lack of respect for other species often translates into insensitivity and cruelty towards our own species” (Poorva Joshipura 4). Animal rights is the idea that animals should live free of humans taking advantage of them (“Animal Rights” 1). According to the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, “cruelty to animals is one trait that regularly appears in its computer records of serial rapists and murderers” (Joshipura 4) Additionally, the American Psychiatric Association classifies cruelty towards animals as an indicator of a mental disorder (Animal Cruelty 2). Joshipura’s point of view shows why animals should not be harmed.
Clive Staples Lewis is an amazing author of fantasy literature and is arguably one of the most influential writers of his time. Most everyone knows the worldwide phenomenal tale of Narnia. As a child, he frequently had thoughts of fantastic creatures and his interest of stories grew. In one of his highly successful books he once said “Progress means not just changing, but changing for the better.” (C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, 25) Mere Christianity was written for the purpose of defending Christian belief. Clive was a lay theologian and a Christian apologist who used logic and philosophy in great
C.S. Lewis, a christian apologist writer wrote Mere Christianity in the nineteen-forties during world war two. Lewis wrote Mere Christianity in attempt to bring together a “common ground” of truths for the core of the Catholic Church’s beliefs. Mere Christianity shows readers logical ways of understanding the Catholic faith and he is presenting this central idea to help comprehend such ideas. The preface of Lewis’s Mere Christianity sets forth his ideas and arguments.
