C S Lewis' Narnia books have delighted millions of readers with their captivating otherworld. In this compelling book, Lewis scholar Michael Ward reveals deeper layers of meaning encrypted in the Narnia series, drawing on medieval cosmology and symbolism. - Koorong

The Narnia books are mysterious. Millions of people have been captivated by them, but are left with unanswered questions. Why are there seven books? Are they biblical allegories? If so, why do four of them seem to have no biblical basis? Why do they lack uniformity? Why does Father Christmas appear in them? ^In The Narnia Code Michael Ward attempts to answer this puzzle. Drawing on Lewis' love of Medieval astronomy, Ward breaks the Narnia 'code' and demonstrates the single theme that provides the link between all seven books. The author takes us through each of the seven Chronicles of Narnia and draws from the whole range of Lewis' other works to reveal the secret. Based on a groundbreaking scholarly work (Planet Narnia, OUP) that entered the Sunday Times best seller list, this fascinating book will cause the reader to understand Lewis in a whole new way. It has some important things to say about how we understand the universe and Christian faith today.

Michael Ward

Michael Ward was born in Cuckfield, Sussex, England. He is Senior Research Fellow of Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, and Professor of Apologetics at Houston Baptist University, Texas. He has loved the Narnia Chronicles since he was a boy.

He first wrote about C.S. Lewis while working for his English degree at the University of Oxford. He lived at Lewis' former home in Oxford, The Kilns, as resident warden for three years (1996-1999), sleeping in the late professor's old bedroom and studying in his study. He appeared in Shadowlands, the film about Lewis' marriage and bereavement. He did his PhD at the University of St. Andrews, and his dissertation was published as Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis (Oxford University Press, 2008). The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) commissioned and broadcast a television documentary about Planet Narnia called The Narnia Code in 2009.

Dr. Ward has written numerous scholarly articles on C.S. Lewis and has lectured around the world on his life and work. He is also the coeditor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis (2010) and Heresies and How to Avoid Them: Why It Matters What Christians Believe (2007).

On the fiftieth anniversary of Lewis' death, Dr Ward unveiled a permanent national memorial to him in Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey, London.
