The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe—Teen Version

Walt Disney Pictures’ special-effects-filled adaptation of C. S. Lewis’s classic fantasy about four British children who step through a magical wardrobe into the land of Narnia.


Lewis's story is a tale rich with metaphors that reflect our sinful failures and God's endeavors to save us from their consequences. This study will explore the ways in which the adventures of the four Pevensie children in Narnia illustrate humankind's corruption and sinful behavior, the role of conscience, the power of trust, the value of forgiveness, and the way that Christ's sacrifice and resurrection liberate us from death's curse.
