With the upcoming movie release of the Walden Media/Walt Disney production of "Prince Caspian" I began searching for a book which would teach both literary analysis and apologetics to my junior-senior high students. After looking at several books I selected Thomas William's "The Heart of the Chroniciles of Narnia."
The book is divided into three themes: The Story of Narnia, Living Like a Narnian and The End and the Beginning, with an introduction, afterward and discussion questions. Williams explores the Chronicles of Narnia utilizing three principles:
1. Letting C.S. Lewis explain the stories himself, using references from his other writings that illuminate the meaning of the Narnian passages and confirm his thought on given concepts.
2. Confirming the many Narnian principles with biblical references.
3. Drawing on resources from other authors.
This is an excellant resource for those who want to "dig deeper" into the Chronicles of Narnia to discover the biblical meaning within the context of Lewis' celebrated stories.

The Heart of Narnia was a wonderful book to read, for narnia fans all around the world. With Thomas Williams guiding you through the classic stories of Narnia and pointing out the hidden biblical signs and comparisons, it makes a great devotional with review questions in the back! I recommend it to anyone who has heard of narnia.
