Books for Advent December 15

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

In this children’s classic, Lucy finds that an old wardrobe in a professor’s country house is a gateway to a magical land of fauns, centaurs, nymphs and talking animals – but also of the beautiful but evil White Witch who has held the land of Narnia in eternal winter for a hundred years. A firm favourite with adults and children alike, this fabulous story is well worth re-reading.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

The impact of this story has had a lasting and significant influence upon our ideas about the Christmas spirit, and about the season as a time for celebration, charity, and memory. Ebeneezer Scrooge is visited by three spirits on Christmas Eve who give him the choice of either changing his ways or suffering a terrible fate.
