Some Spiritual Truths from the Chronicles of Narnia

Here are a few spiritual truths from the Chronicles of Narnia as listed by Devin Brown in his new book A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C.S. Lewis.

  • Evil rarely appears as evil but usually comes disguised as something else.
  • Help often comes in an unanticipated form—in a manner so strange it may look like help only when looking back on it.
  • Real community is made up of different types of individuals with different gifts and abilities.
  • Celebration, joy, and merriment are central to life, not elements reserved only for holidays or vacations.
  • The self-centered life is not glamorous, fun, or exciting but leads to death and destruction.
  • The virtuous life is an adventure—but one that will involve hardship—and the only path leading to genuine happiness and true fulfillment. (196)
