Leland Ryken: Exquisite Article and Captivating Lecture

Leland Ryken, Professor of English at Wheaton College, takes us on a tour of Narnia through the lens of Lewis' own thoughts on literature in his brand new release of A Readers Guide Through the Wardrobe. He has recently given a short twenty-five minute lecture on his book giving, I think, a proper and informative methodology that stays both true to Lewis' original intent and helps illuminate passages within The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

Mr. Ryken has also written an article similar to his lecture entitled, "Reading the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with C.S. Lewis." In this piece, Ryken highlights what he describes as "the three most important lessons that I learned from Lewis himself as I interacted with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe during the process of writing a reader's guide to the book."
