    themes are Aslan, the seven deadly sins, the Devil, and the representation of other religions. These themes play a large role in each of the books and are represented differently throughout the series.

Lewis creates Aslan as a representation of Christ and demonstrates Christian ideas in a condensed simplified manner. This allows children to obtain a basic understanding of Christianity.

Lewis has done an excellent job in creating a series that can be understood as a child and when read again as an adult provides a new meaning and…

    In Narnia, as in the Bible, grace is linked to faith. One cannot acquire forgiveness on their own. His own sin is too great and the divine sovereign is too honest for self-justification. One cannot change themselves either. Sinfulness is to grand to overcome on ones’ own. There are some things only Aslan can do, and the only proper human response to these things is faith. As the Beavers in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe tell Peter, it is no good trying to save Mr. Tumnus from the White…

This compulsion to serve Aslan shows the exact same compulsion to serve and be part of Christianity in reality. Another allegory to the bible used by Lewis is the magnificence of Aslan. The children feel the need to…
