Show synopsis From the author of the new BIG BOOK OF CHRISTIAN MYSTICISM comes an engaging look at how the principles and practices of Christian mysticism are illustrated in C. S. Lewis's Narnia series. Releasing to time with the third film in the blockbuster Narnia series The Voyage of the Dawn Treader December 10, 2010!! The Lion, The Mouse and The Dawn Treader shows the reader how C. S. Lewis was guided by two "templates" in writing Dawn Treader: first, an ancient Celtic folktale known as the immram, or wondrous sea-voyage, in which great saints like Brendan the Navigator sought to reach paradise itself. But on another level, Lewis also built his adventure story around the traditional stages of the Christian life: from initial resistance to God's grace, to discovering how sin enslaves us and "turns us into dragons," to experiencing both the relief found in Christ and the cleansing waters of baptism.
