Becoming a Reader: The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe
It was so fun rereading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It really got me in the Easter mood. I love how C.S. Lewis can write such a brilliant story that both children and adults can enjoy. It has been years since I read it last, and it meant so much more to me now that I understand the symbolism better. One thing that really struck me was how much I didn't like Edmund. He was proud and selfish, and part of me didn't want the perfect Aslan to sacrifice himself for this boy whose own poor choices brought on the punishment. I quickly changed my mind though and thought that I'm so grateful that a proud and selfish person like me, whose own mistakes should bring punishment, has been given the gift of forgiveness through, the perfect, Christ. It's a masterpiece. Who else has read it? What did you think?
