I like this! Makes me want to read them again too! You will have to let me know what you think if the book you ordered. It looked interesting. Chronicles of Narnia are so full of….”stuff.” Got to love them and got to love Lewis….he is one of the most quotable guys I know!
I had never thought of Susan’s reaction to Aslan like that, but on reflection, I agree with you. It is a very perceptive comment. (BTW I have been reading Narnia for over 45 years and I still enjoy rereading the books.)
Susan has always reminded me of the passage that says:
“Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth…”
It makes me wonder, what happened to Susan’s heart to harden it like that? Why does she turn her heart away from Aslan/her relationship with Christ and the gift of Faith? What is she afraid of, or what does she think she’ll have to give up if she opens herself completely to Him?
Then a gnarled craggy finger comes out of nowhere (horror movie style) and points itself at me and drones, “Aren’t you really asking these questions about yourself?”
Which promptly makes me wonder, “What are the times that I harden my heart against the love our Savior offers? What do I think I’ll be expected to do/give up if I give in to a life of faith?”
