Narnia news

Narnia is winning rave reviews from Protestant church leaders.

Audience members were enthralled with the film clip. They also think the movie provides an opportunity to reach out to moviegoers who might otherwise not be receptive to religious appeals.

"It has a gospel message,'' said Pastor Jarvis Ward of Mission America, an evangelical group.

Some local ministers at the sneak preview said the film could lead moviegoers to explore Christianity.

"I think there is a lot of potential for using this movie,'' said the Rev. Matthew Gunter of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Glen Ellyn. He said his church is likely to organize groups to see and discuss it.

I think that this is all a very good sign that the movie will remain essentially faithful to Lewis' message and hopefully it will encourage a greater interest in Lewis' other works.
