With its enchanting themes of light and darkness, temptation and sin, forgiveness and hope--and even an appearance by Father Christmas--C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe naturally enhances the Advent season of reflection. As the reader anticipates the glorious coming of Christmas, Advent in Narnia inspires us to consider the holiday season from a new perspective.
These twenty-eight devotions feature Scripture passages and excerpts from C. S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, prompting meditation on Advent themes such as grace, love, and sacrifice. Questions for reflection are included with each devotion, ultimately guiding the reader to know God better while journeying through Narnia. Four sessions for small group discussion, along with information on creating a "Narnia Night" for families, are also provided to deepen your church's Advent experience.
"This excellent book makes me want to spend my next Advent in Narnia. Haverkamp's week-by-week guide is great for families, as well as for adults of any age who are looking for a delightful way to reflect upon the Advent season." --Paul Jarzembowski, Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Ministries, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
