Do you believe that C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia are books that Christians should read?

Christian themes[edit]
Main article: Religion in The Chronicles of Narnia
A convert to Christianity in later life, Lewis had authored a number of works on Christian apologetics and other literature with Christian-based themes before writing the Narnia books. The character Aslan is widely accepted by literary academia as being based on Jesus Christ.[60] Lewis did not initially plan to incorporate Christian theological concepts into his Narnia stories. Lewis maintained that the Narnia books were not allegorical, preferring to term their Christian aspects a “supposition”.[61][62]
The Chronicles have, consequently, a large Christian following, and are widely used to promote Christian ideas. However, some Christians object that The Chronicles promote “soft-sell paganism and occultism” due to recurring pagan imagery and themes.[63][64][65][66][67][68]
