"But it'll be a long story," said the Dwarf.
"All the better," said Lucy. "We love stories."
Douglas Wilson begins this series of meditations on C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia with the observation, "I have learned far more in Narnia than I can even begin to tell you. I hope you will read these books over and over for the rest of your life." In these talks before a youthful audience, Wilson highlights the practical themes of mature, Christian living that emerge from these classic tales—nobility, confession, complete grace—a joyful contrast to the thinness of modern life.

A fine book. Douglas Wilson knows that the best way to learn from the Narnia Chronicles is by approaching them as stories to be read and reread. Only when we freely enjoy them as tales of adventure will they ever truly edify. Love is the great opener of eyes, and this book is full of insights. ---Michael Ward, author of Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis and Chaplain of St Peter's College, Oxford
The best reading is the kind that weaves in and out of our own lives, so that it's hard to tell where the books end and we begin. C. S. Lewis wrote books that ask to be read that way, and here Douglas Wilson heeds the call. What I Learned in Narnia is a rich response to stories that hold a world of wisdom. Wilson draws forth that wisdom and shows it to us. ---Alan Jacobs, author of The Narnian: The Life and Imagination of C. S. Lewis and professor of English, Wheaton College
For me, Doug Wilson is like his mentor Lewis--even when I disagree I find myself spiritually challenged, thoughtfully provoked, and longing for more child-like wonder and enchantment. I trust this book will do the same for all who read its pages. ---Justin Taylor, managing editor, ESV Study Bible and blogger, The Gospel Coalition
