“But length of days with an evil heart is only length of misery and already she begins to know it. All get what they want; they do not always like it.”
– C. S. Lewis, “The Magician’s Nephew”
I’m re-reading a children’s classic. I’ve decided to read through all of The Chronicles of Narnia alongside my regular reading. I love how Lewis communicates values, meaning and profound truth (like the example above) in ways that are not only simple enough for a child to understand, but also a challenge for any honest adult to argue with. In Narnia, Lewis doesn’t just make his arguments – he transports the reader to a world and a story where they see those truths all around them.
