I am really looking forward to seeing “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”. It debuts on December 9 and it looks like the redemptive themes that we are familiar with in C. S. Lewis’s works appear to be faithfully preserved in this film. From what I have seen in the trailers, it looks cool!
To help you in using the film to bridge to the Gospel, Jeff Bridgforth, Webmaster, GodSquad has gathered a variety of resources from various sources. You will find them in his Narnia Resource Center. Some of what you will find on that page include:
- A Film Synopsis (from NarniaResources.com)
- Outreach ideas.
- Narnia Discussion Starters to use in conversation.
- Questions to ask your friend after watching the film.
- Themes to discuss in conversation.
- A page called “If you’ve seen Narnia” Event ideas. There are several links from this page to information about C. S. Lewis, trivia and even a recipe for Turkish Delight!
- One page has posters and other resources and links to NarniaResources.com, Outreach.com, and Sermon Central.com.
- Evangelistic talks and talks for weekly meetings.
- And finally, a web links page.
Jeff is also working on an evangelistic tract that we can use. He told me that this resource center is a work in progress. If you develop a survey or some other outreach idea and think it would be helpful for others, let him know. You can reach him through mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to seeing this film.
