These seven beloved stories by C. S. Lewis bring warm thoughts to those of us who read them as children or adults. Many of us have been greatly affected by the view Aslan has given us of Christ. Great scriptural truths worm their way into our lives through the power of these creative stories. In light of that, we've created a Bible Study Course which covers all of these books separately, so when you receive the course, you can study one particular book or all of them in a series. You'll enjoy thinking through the spiritual principles these books bring to the forefront, and how they apply to your life.
