Prince Caspian – the book

May 17, 2008 – 9:21 am

In preparation for seeing Prince Caspian tonight, I just finished the book.  I had forgotten a lot of it, but it was still good ( even for an adult ).  Last night it really reminded me to keep my eyes on God, which is always a good reminder.   Also, it was nice to see Lucy, Susan, Peter, and Edmund love Aslan ( Aslan, for those who don’t know, is how Jesus Christ appears to people in Narnia ) – it was humble, bold, and passionate.  I loved seeing the reminder to always trust God, no matter what, even if no one else does ( Lucy is gently chastised for not following Aslan when no one else believed her ).  Very good spiritual lessons, whether you be an adult or a child.  That said, I realized, reading it as a 34 year old, that it is not nearly as exciting as it was when I read it as a child/young adult.  But still good.   Will comment tonight or tomorrow on the movie.
