Last night I attended a screening of the new movie, The Voyage of the Dawn Trader. Being a C. S. Lewis admirer and a dedicated reader of The Chronicles of Narnia, I really enjoyed the movie. It strayed from the original story, but was good none-the-less. It is full of insightful character and value emphases based on Biblical principles. The Undragoning of Eustace gives tremendous insight to the Holy Spirit's Process of Sanctification.
For a great presentation by Jim Burgen on "Undragoning Your Life", go to www.undragonyourlife.com.
Pastors check out www.narniafaith.com. You'll find 20 different Narnia-themed sermon outlines and discussion guides from various Christian leaders like Luis Palau, Fuller Seminary, Group Publishing, and Young Life. You can even download clips of the film.
As with most movies, however, it doesn't compare with C. S. Lewis' original written story. But it is well done. It hits theatres on December 10th.
