An Introduction To The Magician's Nephew

The opening paragraph of The Magician's Nephew tells us we are about to read an "important" story--important because it shows "how all the comings and goings between our world and the land of Narnia first began." When Uncle Andrew, the magician, tricks his nephew, Digory, and neighbor girl, Polly, into trying on his magic rings, the children discover that there are countless worlds beyond their own. They first visit Charn, an ancient world in ruin and decay, destroyed by the wickedness and corruption of its people. The last survivor of Charn, and the one ultimately responsible for its destruction, is Jadis. (This wicked Queen later becomes the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.) Jadis grabs onto Digory and follows the children back to our world, where she begins to wreak havoc on the city of London. In an attempt to return her to Charn, the children accidentally stumble into Narnia--just as Aslan is singing it into existence. They have become eyewitnesses to the miraculous creation of a glorious new world. But Narnia's beauty and perfection is marred almost immediately by the presence of Jadis, whom Digory has unwittingly brought along. Unable to bear being in the presence of the great Lion, Jadis flees to the Wild Lands of the North. She will return to threaten Narnia in the future. it." This foreshadows the story of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe--just as God's promise to Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:15 foreshadows the defeat of Satan at the cross, where Jesus destroyed the power of sin and death by sacrificing His own life for ours. Power is a central theme in The Magician's Nephew--the power of pride, the power of temptation, and the power of evil. Jadis, like Satan, is thoroughly corrupted by a lust for power and dominion over others. Uncle Andrew has devoted his entire life to acquiring secret knowledge and mysterious power through "scientific" experiments with the occult. Even Digory is tempted by a desire for power--though his motive is good, he wants the power to save his dying mother. In the end, it is only by refusing to grasp for power--and instead obeying Aslan's command--that Digory and his mother are saved.

Digory discovers the power of faith and trust-- the power that comes from obedience and submission to the will of God. "For when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 12:10) The Magician's Nephew also includes illustrations of the following truths: "The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them. . . ." (1 Corinthians 2:14) "A friend loves at all times. . . ." (Proverbs 17:17) The Magician's Nephew is essentially the story And "As a father has compassion on his children, of Creation and the Fall of Man. Digory is so the Lord has compassion on those who fear responsible for bringing evil (Jadis) into Narnia. him." (Psalm 103:13) ". . . sin entered the world through one man, and These lessons are just a few of the spiritual death through sin. . . ." (Romans 5:12) As Aslan treasures you will discover as you witness the prophesies, "Evil will come of that evil, but it is creation of Narnia in The Magician's Nephew. still a long way off, and I will see to it that the worst falls upon myself. . . . And as Adam's race has done the harm, Adam's race shall help heal
