Kids (and adults) don’t just need the truth in their heads — they need it in their bones. They need to know what courage looks like and tastes like and smells like before they ever have to show it themselves. They need to do justly, and love mercy, and walk humbly — heroes and villains can show them why. They need to loathe the darkness and love the Light.
N. D. Wilson, Stories are Soul Food: Don’t Let Your Children Hunger
It’s almost not an overstatement to say that Narnia saved my soul. In the midst of a dark childhood, under the influence of a church that had lost its moorings, God sent me these seven wonderful books that I read over and over and over again to help me understand and love Him in a way nothing else did. They kept me from starving. Thank you, Jack. And thank you, Nate, for carrying on the baton in your own way.
