Millions of readers have been captivated by C. S. Lewis???s famed Chronicles of Narnia, but why? What is it about these seven books that makes them so appealing? For more than half a century, scholars have attempted to find the organizing key???the ???secret code??????to the beloved series, but it has remained a mystery. Until now.
In The Narnia Code, Michael Ward takes the reader through each of the seven Narnia books and reveals how each story embodies and expresses the characteristics of one of the seven planets of medieval cosmology???Jupiter, Mars, Sol, Luna, Mercury, Venus and Saturn???planets which Lewis described as ???spiritual symbols of permanent value.???
How does medieval cosmology relate to the Christian underpinnings of the series? How did it impact Lewis???s depiction of Aslan, the Christlike character at the heart of the books? And why did Lewis keep this planetary inspiration a secret? Originally a ground-breaking scholarly work called Planet Narnia, this more accessible adaptation will answer all the questions.

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.
