Aslan's Breath: Seeing the Holy Spirit in Narnia

Matthew Dickerson, Ned Bustard (Illus)

Paperback 2024-03-06

In the seven volumes of The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis represents God the Father as the Emperor-over-the-sea and depicts God the Son as Aslan. But Lewis believed in a triune God―one God in the three persons. Is the Third Person of the Trinity to be found in Narnia? Aslan’s Breath answers with a resounding “Yes,” and then demonstrates from the stories themselves that the Holy Spirit is present throughout Narnia in complex and beautiful ways. Return to Narnia, and reflect on the imagery of the Breath of Aslan―not in an academic or esoteric way―but in a readable book that goes further up and further in, exploring the implications and applications of the Breath to the spiritual formation of those fortunate enough to find themselves between the paws of the True Aslan.

Editorial Review “I’ve read lots of books that unpack spiritual themes in Narnia: this one is different. Rather than offering a wide catalog of observations, Dickerson dives deep into one key concept: portrayals of the Holy Spirit. The result? Not only substantial insight into Narnia but a practical vision of ways to welcome that same Spirit into our daily lives. This is a very good book, and, I think, an important one.” ―Diana Pavlac Glyer, Professor in The Honors College at Azusa Pacific University and author of Bandersnatch, The Company They Keep, and Clay in the Potter’s Hands
