Group Launches 'Narnia' Bible Study

Ad Feedback

The new Chronicles of Narnia movie has the top spot at the box office.

Prince Caspian brought in more than $56 million over the weekend in the U.S. and Canada, and an additional $20 million overseas.

That is the second best opening for a movie this year.

For many Christians, Prince Caspian is more than just a movie.

Like The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, this C.S. Lewis classic is providing an opportunity for evangelism.

Just as the new Disney film opens in theaters nation-wide, a Christian group, Outreach Incorporated, is launching a massive Bible study program based on this C.S. Lewis classic.

"With Prince Caspian, we wanted to produce some tools that would make it really easy for churches to reach out and to share some of the spiritual themes that were in the movie," said Scott Evans, president of Outreach Incorporated.

The strong biblical lessons of Prince Caspian drive home spiritual truths, Evans said.

"If we go back to The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, when the kids left Narnia, Narnia was a place of faith. And Aslan was present. When we fast forward and they go back into Narnia a year later it's been 1,300 Narnia years," Evans said.

"During that 1,300 years when the kids go back, there is no more faith," he added.

With that in mind, the Outreach developers came up with The Faith Journal book.

"If people could learn how to write down what God's doing in their lives, what's happening, they can look back and see where God's been active in their lives," Evans said.

"There's also a section to (write down) prayer requests and answers. And a Bible reading checklist to help people read through the Bible."

Their Web site - Outreach.com - also provides free Prince Caspian materials to help churches reach out to others, including sermon ideas and a Vacation Bible School curriculum to download.

"This movie is a great way to be able to build bridges, to be able to have a dialogue, a conversation about faith and to be able to help people grow in their faith," Evans said.
