The Real Truth about the Chronicles of Narnia

Just picked up a book via the new free inter-library loan program in South Carolina.

It’s one of those crazy books with a crazy premise that only crazy people would write (or, ahem, read…).

I’m told that it says that each of the Chronicles of Narnia was written based on the theme of a particular body in the solar system. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, for example, was written on a sun theme.

Ha!

Right? …ha ha? Why does Lewis attract so many crazies?

Well… No. Apparently not this time. This book was published by Oxford University Press, written by a good friend of Phil Ryken, and is receiving a preliminary hailing around the blogosphere. It’s not actually crazy.

I’m intrigued!

Can’t wait to jump in!
