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...

Prince Caspian and Open Theism

Some friends took issue with a statement by Aslan to the effect:  “We can never know what would have happened.”

Aslan of course is a type of Christ.  And Christ is God.  The idea that God could not know what would have happened smacks a great deal of some modern trend in theology called ‘open theism.’

The book, however, has Aslan saying something quite different:  “No one is told what would have happened.”  In the same package of insight, Lewis shares through Aslan, “One is only told their own story.”  [these are paraphrases]

That comment was the only one I … 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...

Article on Lewis and Paganism Published

My friend Don Hank at Laigles Forum has published my article defending Lewis from the charge of paganism.  Some of you might not even know the charge has been levied.  Honestly, I don’t want to link to them, so you’ll have to Goodsearch your way to them.

Below I have the first couple paragraphs and then from there you’ll need to click through to read the rest of it, at least for now.

When they appeared in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, it was easy to look the other way in the face of the undeniable Christian … continue reading...
