In addition to being one of the best-loved books of all time, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is sure to set box-office records when it releases Christmas 2005. Distributed by Disney, directed by Andrew Adamson (director of Shrek), with special effects by WETA Workshop (The Lord of the Rings), and backed by a $150MM budget, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe will draw millions of viewers, both Christian and non-Christian.
In the same way that Christians walked away from viewing Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ with a hunger to share Christ with their neighbors, using Gibson's movie as a conversation starter, Christians will walk away from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe wanting to share with their neighbors that Aslan, who was killed by the White Witch and was raised to life three days later, is a shadow of the One who was crucified and raised to life for the sins of the world.
Using biblical parallels, this quick, easy-to-read book will lead readers to an understanding of Christ and what He did for them by drawing lessons from The Chronicles of Narnia. Christians will want to buy this book in bulk as a non-threatening, warm-hearted evangelistic tool.
