Item Description...
The Soul of Prince Caspian reveals the Christian meaning behind the second of C. S. Lewis?s Narnia books, showing you that, while Prince Caspian may be about the land of Narnia, it?s also about your world.

Publishers Description

Through best-selling books and now blockbuster motion pictures, C. S. Lewis’s masterpiece "The Chronicles of Narnia" has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of children and adults. When Lewis wrote this acclaimed series more than half a century ago, many considered it a mere children’s allegory and missed the rich spiritual meaning of the Christian faith that Lewis was clearly communicating.

In The Soul of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Gene Veith revealed the mysteries and meanings of the first Narnia book. And now with the motion picture release of the second in the series, Veith returns to dig deeply into the biblical message behind this beloved story.

In The Soul of Prince Caspian, Veith reveals how Lewis takes on the modern mindset that has literally forgotten Christ—just as Narnia has forgotten Aslan. As Veith unlocks the story of Prince Caspian, you’ll discover how Lewis’s other writings add depth and clarity to his message. And you’ll see that, while Prince Caspian may be about the fantastic land of Narnia, it’s also about your world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A deftly written and through examination of faith  Jun 7, 2008
The Chronicles of Narnia has little veiling of its Christian roots- and author Gene Veith claims that the sequel 'Prince Caspian' has parallels to our world as well. "The Soul of Prince Caspian: Exploring Spiritual Truth in the Land of Narnia" is a look at the spiritual and religious elements found in Narnia and how they reflect into the real world, focusing on the forgotten faith that seems to go with so many lapsed American Christians. "The Soul of Prince Caspian: Exploring Spiritual Truth in the Land of Narnia" is a deftly written and through examination of faith, and highly recommended to community library Christianity collections and for fans of the franchise as well.
Masterful Insights into Caspian  Jun 5, 2008
Veith is certainly culture and Christianity, so this is perfect fit for him and us, the readers. Here he provides his articulate analysis of Lewis' second book in Narnia, which we know by his writing that it is about the restoration of true religion after corruption.

Veith brings his reading and knowledge of literature, mythology, philosophy, and theology among others to bear upon the fantasy symbolism in this wrongful overthrow of Old Narnia by the Telemarines and Miraz. The summons of the Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy is the focal point of this adventure, and Veith shows in his careful probing of the theological and cultural underpinnings of this Narnian tale what application it might have for today's postmodern world and Christianity's engagement with it.

What this reviewer found so useful here is the careful development of the defamiliarization and regress of a culture that lost its spiritual and moral moorings. This is supplemented by questions for study and discussion at the end of each chapter.

A must have for those who want to go deeper into this Narnia offering by a trustworthy guide.
Terrific synopsis  May 5, 2008
Dr. Veith's analysis of both the theology of CS Lewis and his application to Prince Caspian is phenomenal. text features study questions, suitable for Bible study. Caspian is treated in our setting especially in light of post-modernity. Despite the simple allegory of Lewis, this text draws out additional insights I had overlooked. Well recommended!
