A Tale of Two Kitties

Christianity Today has posted an article called “A Tale of Two Kitties” talking about the commercialization of LWW. The article compares Narnia’s Aslan and Hobbes of Calvin & Hobbes. Writes E. J. Park: “If you’re a fan of Narnia, comparing Aslan to Hobbes may seem incongruous, if not sacrilegious. After all, Aslan is the Creator and ruler of Narnia, an obvious Christ-figure who sacrifices his life to save the undeserving Edmund. Hobbes is a stuffed tiger with a weakness for tummy rubs. As feline characters go, Aslan is far more serious than Hobbes. Or so you would think.” Click here to read the article.
