Have any lingering questions about Narnia? We are wrapping up next week, so hit us up with questions on twitter or at email@example.com.
A few highlights from our conversation:
Was C.S. Lewis a univeralist? Sort of.
Discussed the book Roar!: A Christian Family Guide To The Chronicles Of Narnia
Taylor points out that having some good brown people doesn’t make The Last Battle not racist, it’s just tokenism.
The idea that myths point to Jesus is invalidating… “your beliefs and stories are valuable because they are secretly about Jesus and you don’t know it yet.”
This book bring up the question: Is death good? The Pevenses watch the world end and its a positive experience.
Calormen gets all the criticism for sacrifice, while there’s a sacrificial slab (stone table) right in the middle of Narnia.
Religion often pushes away death anxiety, so we don’t get a chance to make peace with it.
Much of the time, Lewis was having fun… he wasn’t THAT intentional.
Lewis’ themes are beyond Christianity.
We can see the limits of Lewis’ imagination, and where his imagination pushed the limits of his context.
Racism in The Last Battle is possibly worst than Horse & His Boy.
Is Tash Satan? That’s certainly up for debate.
Taylor believes that Narnia is a world of henotheism, where western gods are good characters, eastern gods are not.
