The Horse and His Boy, by C.S. Lewis

Here's another kids' book I read to myself rather than to David. It had been a tiring day, and I wanted a comfort book. This one filled the bill admirably. I don't intend to say much about it; I expect that most of my readers have already made up their minds about the Narnia books one way or another.

However, this book does illustrate one of the points I made in my recent post on The Two Churches: it shows how Christ (in the person of Aslan) meets us where we are--and then takes us further than we could have imagined, and often not in a direction we'd have been willing to go without his prompting.
