Narnia Beckons

Dr. Baehr co-authored Narnia Beckons with his son James to bring readers into the fantastical world of Narnia by offering insights into the works and life of C.S. Lewis.



“The book is a treasure of interesting facts, quotes and anecdotes--in sum, everything you ever wanted to know about C.S. Lewis's most memorable work.

- TCM Reviews

“I was literally charmed by this work. If I could put it in simple words, this is not a heavy read, but a delightful run through of a master writer, a model Christian, dotted with information that will enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the works of C.S. Lewis. A definite must have!”

- Shirley J., reviewer

In this beautiful coffee table book of over 180 pages, the custom illustrations and insightful essays reveal the mind and imagination of C.S. Lewis. To approach the life and work of C.S. Lewis is as much like stepping into the enchanted wardrobe that opens to his wide-eyed world of Narnia.

Inside this beautiful hardback book, you will find expert essays on the entire life of the penman known a “Jack,” rare photographs of his childhood haunts, and profiles of family, well-loved authors, and his Inkling friends.
