The Complete Chronicles of Narnia: The Classic BBC Radio 4 Full-Cast Dramatisations [Audiobook]

Mark Alder writes-:

My wife and I have just finished listening to the Chronicles of Narnia audible book. We both found this immensely enjoyable and heartily recommend this for your children (and adults as well!).

I suppose the age group for this audible book depends on your particular child. Some children as young as 6 could get something out of this. Older children obviously will get more out of the audible book.

There is I believe a ‘cumulative effect’ operating here. As a child listens to each book he or she will get more endeared with the characters - particularly Aslan!

I feel that many children who have listened to the whole audible book will be deeply touched and this could affect the spiritual direction of their future lives.

Although I don’t want to elaborate on this here, I must state that there are other children’s books which do not have such a positive effect on children. For this reason, I feel it is necessary to disseminate this particular audible book as much as possible.

Are these just children’s stories?

At one level the Narnia Chronicles can be viewed as a wonderful series of enchanting stories loved by the children of many generations. This is what I have tried to say in what I have written above.

Narnia stories viewed at a deeper level

Many people will however realise that these stories represent at a deeper level, important features of authentic Christianity. C.S. Lewis wrote these stories to help introduce the concepts of Christianity to children. For example Aslan the lion represents Jesus Christ.

About C.S. Lewis

The Chronicles of Narnia series was written by C. S. Lewis in the 1950s, when he was a high-powered Oxford professor and perhaps the 20th Century’s most famous convert to Christianity. An atheist from boyhood, he converted at age 33 to Christianity and devoted much of the rest of his life to writing about faith.

C.S. Lewis - the great Apologist

C. S. Lewis was the great Christian apologist of the 20th Century. His radio programs reached millions and galvanized a new revival in the 1940s in the United Kingdom during World War II. His books including The Chronicles of Narnia have been read by 100 million people, many of whom have seen a deeper truth in them.
