The Chronicles of Narnia and Philosophy — Our Book for August 9th

On August 9th the C.S. Lewis Society of Harrisonburg will be reading The Chronicles of Narnia and Philosophy, subtitled The Lion, The Witch, and The Worldview edited by Gregory Bassham and Jerry L. Walls.  It's a 285 page book divided into four sections.  Each section is composed of several essays by a wide variety of C.S. Lewis scholars.  Our discussion of The Chronicles of Narnia and Philosophy will be led by Jane.

The four sections of the book are:

Part I: Farewell to Shadowlands: Believing, Doubting, and Knowing

Part II: The Tao in Narnia: Morality and the Good Life

Part III: Further Up and Further In; Exploring the Deeper Nature of Reality, and

Part IV: The Deepest Magic: Religion and the Transcendent

You can pick up the book from Barnes and Noble (SEE HERE) or Amazon (SEE HERE)

The C.S. Lewis Society of Harrisonburg meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble in Harrisonburg at a little reading nook set up by the philosophy books just outside the DVD section of the story.  You don't have to have read the book to join in the discussion but of course it helps.  Everyone that is interested in C.S. Lewis and his friends, the Inkings, is very welcome.
