We finally saw Narnia today. At the risk of sounding blasphemous, it was a spiritual experience.
As a movie, in the technical sense, Narnia is outstanding, verging on great. Not quite in the league of Lord of the Rings, but then, what is? But the combination of the acting (moving in and of itself) and the story of sacrifice, redemption, and resurrection is beyond my ability to describe it in mere words.
Aslan is not the Christ. At least, not our Christ. But he does fill that bill for Narnia. Those ignorant of the gospel message might be tempted to read a little C.S. Lewis (go for it). Then check Jack Lewis’ sources in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Those of us who have already received the gospel message know that the story of Narnia is Truth. With a capital “T.”
