Is “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” a Biblical Allegory?


If The Chronicles of NarniaThe Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a Biblical allegory, then why we are unable to figure out Bible or Christ ever mentioned?


Yeah, that’s true. This novel serves as Christian and spiritual allegory, as its main characters are parallel to Christian figures such as Judas and Christ. Though, author has not explicitly mentioned religion, however you may notice allusions and references to Biblical principles and history. He explores religious truth in general that is based on feelings, than describing didactically. In author’s point of view, beauty and truth are great ways for experiencing spiritual truth.
