These The Chronicles of Narnia quotes come from several of the books, which have been adapted for radio, television, the stage, film, and even computer games.

I remember the first time I was transported to the magical land of Narnia thanks to British author C.S. Lewis.

I discovered the books in my middle school library and was hooked! 

The Chronicles of Narnia, a series of seven fantasy novels, was originally published between 1950 and 1956.

The first book published was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

Narnia is a fantastical world of magic, mythical beasts, and talking animals.

It narrates the adventures of various children, primarily Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter, who play central roles in the unfolding history of Narnia.

Aslan, the Lion is also featured in the novels and is a supposed reference for Jesus.

Many of these The Chronicles of Narnia quotes illustrate the correlation between Jesus and Aslan.

What did you learn from these The Chronicles of Narnia quotes

Most people read the books in the order they were published which is: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (1950), Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia (1951), The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952), The Silver Chair (1953), The Horse and His Boy (1954), The Magician’s Nephew (1955), and The Last Battle (1956).

However, some people choose to read the saga in chronological order.

This would mean you would need to start with The Magician’s Nephew. 

Next, you would read The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, The Horse and His BoyPrince Caspian: The Return to NarniaThe Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and The Silver Chair.

The Last Battle is still the final book of the series.

Regardless of the order you read them in, these books are wonderfully imaginative.

The movies, which you can watch on Netflix really bring to life a story that has captivated people for generations.

My son is currently reading the saga, and enjoying it as much as I did.

The themes of good vs.

evil, betrayal and forgiveness, courage, transformation, the natural world, and magic are timeless and Lewis’ stories do an excellent job of capturing your attention.
