I recently reread some of Joe Rigney’s book ‘Live Like a Narnian’ and, as always, was more inspired to be a better Christian and person by the Narnia stories. So I wanted to ask you Connecters out there - how has Narnia shaped your Christian walk?
For me, I think the longing for ‘Narnia and the North’ that is the undercurrent of ‘The Horse and His Boy’ is a part of the Narnia chronicles that taught me something about desiring God’s country. Lewis awakened that deep longing for something beyond this world - for a place where the people are good and kind and the king is a man filled with humility and joy and self-sacrificial love. It is that thirst for righteousness.
Live Like a Narnian by Joe Rigney
Really enjoyed reading this book and later listening to the talk. Rigney discusses how we can grow as disciples through the Narnian stories. I don’t necessarily agree on the topic of submission, though I certainly do agree that male / female roles are indeed distinct and different.
