In this tale symbolic of the gospel, during World War II, four children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, are sent to stay at the country home of an old professor. During a game of hide-and-seek, Lucy steps into a wardrobe, only there seems to be no end to it. Just when she thinks she's found the back she steps out into a wintry forest - and the land of Narnia!
There she meets a Faun named Tumnus who tells her how the White Witch has used her magic to make it always winter in Narnia, but never Christmas. They will all discover the land of Narnia and meet Aslan, the Great Lion and true ruler of Narnia.
Though Aslan's return brings hope to the Narnians, that hope is crushed when Aslan gives himself in sacrifice to save Edmund from the Witch. Who will save Narnia now?

I ordered the Study Guide for one of our school teachers. He is thrilled with it. The little I saw of it impressed me. Greatly appreciate the depth to which it digs into the novel and bringing the light of scripture to bear on the book.
I purchase the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Study Guide for one of our teachers. When asked for his input he said: "Excellent". I managed to briefly peruse it. I appreciated the vocabulary research and the biblical applications.
we have just started using the Study Guide this last week, but already I as a mom love it! And, my 12 year old son- besides loving the book and already falling in love with the whole series- is truly enjoying digging deeper thru the Study Guide. This is our 1st time to use Progeny and the Study Guides and I know it won't be our last!
