This new book by Joe Rigney, Live Like A Narnian: Christian Discipleship in Lewis’s Chronicles, just in time it seems for the Desiring God conference The Romantic Rationalist: God, Life, and Imagination in the Work of C.S. Lewis, looks very interesting. Here’s the publisher’s description:
In Live Like a Narnian Joe Rigney shows that Owen Barfield was right–What C.S. Lewis thought about everything was secretly present in what he said about anything. From apologetics to his thoughts on education, from his view of science to the role of government, from Natural Law to true manhood and womanhood–the breadth of Lewis’s bright vision of life shines through in his beloved Chronicles. Come, learn to breathe Narnian air.
A few endorsements:
“As a long-time lover of C. S. Lewis and the world of Narnia, I have read countless books about both. Joe Rigney’s Live Like a Narnian is one of the best. It overflows with an authentic sense of Narnian brightness, wisdom, and wonder. Rigney seems equally at home with Lewis’s fiction and nonfiction. He draws them together beautifully, with truth and imagination. I highly recommend this delightful book!” — Randy Alcorn, author, Heaven and If God Is Good
“The immediate effect of Live Like a Narnian: I want to. Written with a fun, lively, muscular style, it succeeds both as a work of popular literary criticism and as a readable call to follow Aslan all the way to the end.” — Owen Strachan, author, Risky Gospel: Abandon Fear and Build Something Awesome
