The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Michael Williams went and saw the movie. But he’s never read the books. So, since he was watching the movie for its own sake, he thought the pacing was slow. He hasn’t read the books! Oh my goodness. I personally think they are wonderful books. The Horse and His Boy is one of my favorite novels of all time. (It’s in the series.)

I told him to pull them off his shelf and read them, but then I thought of my student’s family who thinks that fantasy fiction is Satanic and who, having read the Narnia Chronicles to their daughters, credits the books with terrifying the girls.

I was going to put up the post that I wrote on that, but it turns out I didn’t write on that. I wrote on their response to science fiction. (We were reading H. G. Wells’ Time Machine.)

Science Fiction is from the Devil?

Sci Fi and the Devil was a continuation of that response. Since I wrote that, in fact quite recently, LaShawn Barber has started a Christian fantasy fiction site. It’s here. It’s had some interesting posts.

At one point Xianworldview had new reviews of science fiction and fantasy novels, but it hasn’t been updated in a long time. As a reader of both, I am a bit sad about that.
