To See the World As It Really Is — Joe Rigney begins to wrap up his “Live Like a Narnian” series by showing how C.S. Lewis’ approach to education led him to write the Chronicles of Narnia in the first place. Lewis believed that a good fairy tale is simply an imaginative way to see the world as it really is. I love this quote from the end of the article:
“A child raised on such stories will have developed the patterns and habits of thought and affection that will be well prepared to embrace the True, the Good, and the Beautiful (that is, to embrace Jesus Christ) when he finally encounters them (Him!) when he is grown. Like John the Baptist, Lewis and his cast of Narnians will have prepared the way.”
