This is the second of two podcasts on The Last Battle by C. S. Lewis. This book is the last in the Chronicles of Narnia and tells of the end of Narnia and the discovery of the real Narnia in Aslan’s country, Heaven. From a theological point of view we cover the Last Judgment, Salvation, and Heaven as described by Lewis in this book. The tale contains some of his most beautiful writing as well as some of his best insights about human nature and God. Ultimately it is a message of renewal and hope. Nevertheless, we have to concede that it is unflinching in its insistence that all countries except God’s own must come to an end someday, and that everyone must undergo the experience of death.
The show looks at the forebodings of the end, the examples of treachery and betrayal in the tale, how beings are chosen to enter Heaven, and the salvation of a noble, God-seeking heathen who does not know Aslan.
