    Revisiting Narnia is good but not great There are 25 essays on display some are fantastic, some are good and others are dull and or difficult reads The essays vary greatly in content and tone some are humorous but most are seriously scholarly works There s even an essay by the founder of PETA and it was fairly reasonable The essay I disliked the least was well written but displayed poor form It was one written by a man who hates Christianity it happens and hates Narnia say what Revisiting Narnia is good but not great There are 25 essays on display some are fantastic, some are good and others are dull and or difficult reads The essays vary greatly in content and tone some are humorous but most are seriously scholarly works There s even an essay by the founder of PETA and it was fairly reasonable The essay I disliked the least was well written but displayed poor form It was one written by a man who hates Christianity it happens and hates Narnia say what That s just stupid Why the crap would you write an essay about Narnia to include in a book, when you dislike it so It s like professional trolling He then has the gall to offer a Greek Orthodox version of LWW that shows he doesn t understand the fundamental basics of the Christian faith There are a number of essays written by people I have little in common with eg a wiccan, a feminist etc but they wrote some of theagreeable and enjoyable pieces All in all, the book is probably worth a read if you re a hard core Narnia fan but it doesn t hold a candle to the brilliant essay anthology, The Lion, the Witch and the Worldview 7 10

    It would be nice if this was mostly a book with several people analyzing Narnia as a literary work Instead, this book is mostly filled with angry, whiny authors who are taking out their vendetta against Lewis as a Christian and so finding ridiculous faults with his characterization of Aslan and other things that happened in the books The authors endlessly twist and misinterpret everything Lewis wrote, to the point where it seems intentional If Lewis had followed the advice of these know it It would be nice if this was mostly a book with several people analyzing Narnia as a literary work Instead, this book is mostly filled with angry, whiny authors who are taking out their vendetta against Lewis as a Christian and so finding ridiculous faults with his characterization of Aslan and other things that happened in the books The authors endlessly twist and misinterpret everything Lewis wrote, to the point where it seems intentional If Lewis had followed the advice of these know it all authors, Aslan would have been another boring cipher cliche, the stories would be dreadful, and no one would still be talking about the books 60 years later There are a few authors in the book who praise Lewis work, but none of the articles addresses and corrects the ludicrous, false claims made by the other authors, presented here as fact

    Some of the essays in this book were interesting and thought provoking unfortunately some were not A number of the contributors had their own axes to grind, which they did far less entertainly that Lewis.

    Fascinating collection of perspectives Just when you think you ve delved into every concievable metaphorical and allegorical aspect of Narnia, a new one flowers before your eyes If you didn t find any value in the Chronicles of Narnia before, you won t be able to deny it once you read this book.

    Collection of 25 short essays on C.S Lewis Narnia books What makes these especially interesting is the wide range of the authors Protestants, Catholics, a Greek Orthodox person as well as agnostics and pagans I especially liked the essays discussing the order in which the books should be read.
