Historien om hvordan der opstod forbindelse mellem vores verden og landet Narnia.Det hele begyndte, da onkel Andrew narrede Polly til at røre ved den magiske ring.Polly forsvinder til en anden verden, men hendes ven Digory tager efter hende for at få hende tilbage igen.
Da drengen Shasta finder ud af, at han ikke er søn af den hårde og ukærlige fisker, der vil sælge ham som slave, flygter han. På sin desperate rejse møder han en pige, Aravis, der er på flugt lige som ham selv. Selv om de absolut ikke kan lide hinanden, bliver de – og de to talende heste de rider på - enige om at følges ad. Men for at komme til Narnia skal de først gennem storbyen Tashbaan, hvor mange farer lurer og bagefter gennem ørkenen og over bjergene. I Tashbaan kommer det fra hinanden, og hver for sig får de oplysninger om et planlagt angreb på Narnia. Vil det lykkes dem at advare Kong Peter og hans søskende før det er for sent? Vil det lykkes for den store og gode løve Aslan endnu en gang at indgyde indbyggerne i Narnia den kraft og det mod, der skal til for at vinde over de onde magter, som truer?
Denne fortælling begynder på en jernbanestation, hvor de fire søskende Peter, Susan, Edmund og Lucy sidder og venter på et tog. Pludselig føles det, som om nogen trækker i dem og i næste øjeblik er hele stationen forsvundet, og de er tilbage i det magiske land, Narnia. Men Narnia har sin egen tid, og der er hundrevis af år siden børnene var der sidst. Alt er anderledes. Menneskefolket Telmarinerne har erobret landet, dyr og træer er blevet gjort tavse, og dværge og faune er fordrevet. Løven Aslan giver børnene opgaven at jage indtrængerne ud, og give tronen tilbage til Narnias retmæssige leder Prins Caspian.
Edmund og Lucy, som vi kender som de to yngste af de fire søskende i Løven, heksen og garderobeskabet, er på sommerferie hos deres umulige og irriterende fætter Eustace. En dag finder de ved et tilfælde en indgang til det fortryllede land Narnia gennem et maleri. De tre børn bliver samlet op af skibet Morgenvandreren, og sammen med kong Caspian og musen Rippitjip drager de videre for at finde de syv venner af kong Caspians far, som har været forsvundet i årevis. Det bliver en eventyrlig rejse, hvor de blandt andre møder en drage, en søslange, en flok usynlige mennesker og en troldmand – og på den anden side af verdens ende venter den den mægtige løve Aslan.
Fætter Eustace, som vi kender fra Morgenvandrerens rejse, trækker sin veninde Jill med til Narnia, hidkaldt af Narnias skaber, Aslan, som har brug for deres hjælp. Sammen med den tungsindige marskmule Muddermukke får børnene til opgave at finde den forsvundne prins Rilian, som er den retmæssige arving til Narnias trone. Det bliver en farefuld rejse, som blandt andet fører dem til de menneskeædende kæmpers borg og til et land langt under jorden. Mange før dem har forsøgt at redde prinsen, men det er endnu
Det er et Narnia fuld af forvirring, Eustace og Jill, som vi husker fra Sølvstolen, kommer til denne gang. Den unge konge Tirian er ved at tabe en ulige kamp mod de fjendtlige calomenere og mod den listige og grumme abe Finte, som optræder i Aslans navn. Landet er ødelagt og folk ved ikke længere, hvem de kan stole på. Sammen med kong Tirian udkæmper de to børn og nogle tro væbnere Det Sidste Slag. Og da den magiske løve Aslan efter slaget kalder sejrherrerne til sig, begynder sære og vidunderlige ting at ske.

C.S. Lewis's dazzling allegory about heaven and hell - and the chasm fixed between them - is one of his most brilliantly imaginative tales, as he takes issue with the ideas in William Blake's 'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell'.In a dream, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed from his expectations, from the disgruntled, ghostly inhabitants of Hell to the angels and souls who dwell on the plains of Heaven.This powerful, exquisitely written fantasy is one of C.S. Lewis's most enduring works of fiction and a profound meditation on good and evil.
The Chronicles of Narnia have enchanted millions of readers over the last fifty years and the magical events described in C.S. Lewis's immortal prose have left many a lasting memory for adults and children alike.
For many years an atheist, C. S. Lewis vividly describes the spiritual quest that convinced him of the truth and reality of Christianity, in his famous autobiography."e;In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God ... perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England."e; Thus Lewis describes memorably the crisis of his conversion.'Surprised by Joy' reveals both that crisis and its momentous conclusion that would determine the shape of Lewis's entire life.
C.S. Lewis's famous inspirational work on the nature of love.'The Four Loves' divides love into four categories: Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity. The first three are loves which come naturally to the human race. Charity, however, the Gift-love of God, is divine in its source and expression, and without the sweetening grace of this supernatural love, the natural loves become distorted and even dangerous.
For centuries people have been tormented by one question above all - 'If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?' And what of the suffering of animals, who neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it?The greatest Christian thinker of our time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C.S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungry for a true understanding of human nature.

'The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this.'This is the key statement of 'Miracles', in which C. S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in his creation.Using his characteristic lucidity and wit to develop his argument, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics and deists on their own grounds and provides a poetic and joyous affirmation that miracles really do occur in our everyday lives.

C. S. Lewis's illuminating reflections on Milton's Paradise Lost, the seminal classic that profoundly influenced Christian thought as well as Lewis's own.In Preface to Paradise Lost, the Christian apologist and revered scholar and professor of literature closely examines the style, content, structure, and themes of Milton's masterpiece, a retelling of the biblical story of the Fall of Humankind, Satan's temptation, and the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. Considering the story within the context of the Western literary tradition, Lewis offers invaluable insights into Paradise Lost and the nature of literature itself, unveiling the poem's beauty and its wisdom.Lewis explains and defends the literary form known as ?Epic,? pondering simple yet perceptive questions such as: What is an Epic? Why, in the seventeenth century, did Milton choose to write his story in this style? In what sense is Paradise Lost similar to the Homeric poems or the Anglo Saxon Beowulf? In what sense did Milton develop Virgil's legacy? With the clarity of thought and style that are the hallmarks of his writing, Lewis provides answers with a lucidity and lightness that deepens our understanding of this literary form and both illuminates Milton's immortal epic and its meaning and inspires readers to revisit it. Ultimately, he reminds us why elements including ritual, splendor, and joy deserve to exist and hold a sacred place in human life. One of Lewis's most revered scholarly works, Preface to Paradise Lost is indispensable for literature, philosophy, and religion scholars and for ardent fans of Lewis's writings.
