The Narnia Code - DVD review

Millions of readers have been captivated by C. S. Lewis’s famed Chronicles of Narnia, but why? What is it about these seven books that makes them so appealing? For more than half a century, scholars have attempted to find the organizing key—the “secret code”—to the beloved series, but it has remained a mystery. Until now.

This documentary describes C. S. Lewis from a young child, to a multi-talented and highly gifted author.  The viewer is taken on a journey in which C. S. Lewis' life is explained in more detail, and the background for the "why" of his writing the Chronicles of Narnia is examined. Shown also are his reasons for growing up as an Athiest; to his meeting and befriending of J.R.R Tolkein. Conversations with Tolkein were instrumental in Lewis choosing to question his Athiestic beliefs; and finally come to the conclusion that God truly is alive and real.   Michael Ward is noted as discovering the "secret code" to these wonderful stories.  I was intrigued throughout the DVD, and kept taking notes so I would not forget anything.  I recommend that all adult C. S. Lewis, and Narnia lovers would benefit from watching this DVD.   I won't tell more than this, for fear of spoiling the wonderful "secrets" held within this DVD.

Also look for Michael Ward's book:  Planet Narnia -
