God's Sovereignty in Lewis

"Thus we see Lewis’ purpose in The Horse and His Boy. His aim throughout the whole story with almost every character was one and the same: to expand and display the reality present in Romans 8:28, 'And we know that God causes all things to work together for good, to those that love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.' Aslan, as you have seen, has this kind of encounter with Shasta and many other characters. All of the characters, even Bree the horse, seem to be down and out when Aslan comes to them with sovereign encouragement one by one." ~ Adam Powers

One of my friends, Adam Powers, is writing a series of entries on his blog about C. S. Lewis's Narnia series. Today's post is about The Horse and His Boy. Adam shows how one of Lewis' main points in this work is to show us the comfort of the sovereignty of God. He makes a great point and it is very encouraging. Read more here.

By His Grace,
