Voyage of the Dawn Treader is Back On

Apparently, Disney is set to film Voyage of the Dawn Treader after having previously indicated the movie was off.   In a previous post, I discussed my feelings about this.   Essentially, I was unhappy with the embellishments in the movie and believe that the drop in revenue was associated with Lewis fans showing their displeasure.   I reviewed Prince Caspian.  The title was:  A Review of Prince Caspian- One Disappointed Christian.

From my readings in the blogosphere, it looks like we may be in for more with the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  This is unfortunate, as this is one … continue reading...

Disney Drops Narnia Movie, Dawn Treader Voyage Cancelled

I read today on Worldnetdaily that Disney is not going to produce the next in line in the Narnia series, the Dawn Treader.  Article:  http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=85538

This is disappointing but not entirely surprising.  I have always thought that it would be difficult to make a full length movie out of all seven books in the Narnia series.   I was concerned that if the books were forced to fit into the ‘full length movie’ paradigm that ‘enhancements’ and ’embellishments’ would necessarily have to follow.   I find that many Christians much preferred something true to the text.  A cinematic version of the … continue reading...

A Review of Prince Caspian: One Christian Disappointed

I’ve heard a handful of rave reviews for Prince Caspian the movie but can’t say that I can join them in their enthusiasm.  I feel even like I ought to title this review something like “A review of that movie which is titled after Prince Caspian and has characters similarly named and slight plot resemblances.”  But that is too long.  I probably would not be as disappointed if the first Narnia movie hadn’t been so faithful to the text of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, which I favorably reviewed here.  I assumed that the same careful attention … continue reading...

the ChristianPost runs my column in defense of CS Lewis against the charge of Paganism

I was delighted to learn today that the ChristianPost.com ran a column I wrote defending CS Lewis against the charge of Paganism. I mentioned this column a week or so ago, as my friends at LaiglesForum.com also ran it. You may not know that Lewis has been charged with such things, but even a half hearted google search will show you what I mean.  Below I have also linked to my other entries on my blog where I have opined on the Narnia series.

Without further ado, here is a snippet of the article, which you can read in its … continue reading...

the Christian Themes of CS Lewis’s Prince Caspian of the Chronicles of Narnia

I have been getting requests for this information as well as requests for a bulletin insert, which I am working on.

Philip Pullman (author of the Golden Compass) is on record expressing his distaste for the Chronicles of Narnia but I strongly suspect that he didn’t understand what CS Lewis was doing in his series.… continue reading...

The Fellowship of the King: Graduation Speech, 2005.

At long last I have managed to get the video of my graduation speech online in a workable format. I have them up on Youtube right now in two halves and on Apologeticsvideos.net in whole (shown below). This is a graduating class that I had for their 7th and 8th grade years, teaching religion, social studies, and PE. This is one of the few presentations that I have given from a written text. Below the video I have the full text.

Fantasy Role Playing Games

I wrote the following for another blog but thought it would be appropriate here.  It was inspired by the fact that I have a role playing game built around my book series, which you can find here.

——————————-

What is about fantasy role playing games that appeal to so many people? Never mind the games- what about the movies? The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, the Matrix… these and more appear to appeal to something deep inside of nearly every human being. Why?

There are some people that think that humans are just the … continue reading...
