Further Up & Further In: Understanding C. S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

With the blockbuster movie sensation, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, popular culture has turned its attention again to the writings of C. S. Lewis. Further Up & Further In: Understanding C. S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, written by Bruce Edwards, is a usable companion to the original story. In this work the author proves himself adept at casting the single volume depicted in the movie into the larger context of the seven installments found in the classic series, The Chronicles of Narnia. The title of the book is an expression vital to the overall story of Narnia. If you are looking for some commentary on this series, this book will be your friend.
