Do the Chronicles of Narnia mirror Christian history?
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe – Christ’s atonement
Prince Caspian – The Reformation
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader – ?
The Silver Chair – ?
The Horse and His Boy – ?
The Magician’s Nephew – Creation
The Last Battle – Apocalypse/Final Judgment
The middle three are harder for me to pin down. Do they just mirror things like sanctification in the life of the believer? Seems it should be more than that, in light of how closely linked the others appear to be.
I suppose The Horse and His Boy could be a mirror of Acts 10 and the inclusion of Gentiles, maybe?
Any thoughts? Would you make the same connections? Would you add any I’ve missed? Which of mine would you change?
