    C.S. Lewis is brilliant in his way of being able to put into understandable and user-friendly language and images, the consequences of sin or our bad choices. In Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", the Prince becomes on the outside what he truly is on the inside and LOVE is the only power that can transform him into a decent human being. Ditto on Eustace. Aslan is the only one that can remove that final horrific layer of nastiness. Conversion: the result of grace moving a person to accept (and repent) his past failings and begin the journey toward becoming a person who eminates goodness, tolerance, patience, and love.

    I love how Lewis makes Reepicheep's character develop over 2 books. In Prince Caspian It my be presumed that Reepicheep was one of the mice that responded to being drenched by Wimbleweather's tears with yelling at him causing the giant to find somewhere where he could be miserable in peace. But in VDT when Dragon Eustace is loney laying by himself felling his worst Reep, unlike with Wimbleweather, goes over and cheers him up. That's one reason why the characters in the Chronicles are very realistic, it happens over time not overnight.

    These podcasts really make you enjoy Narnia even more than you already did.
    I really like how you guys pick the most noteable situations in the books and try to analyze them to get a better understanding.
    I can't wait for discussions on Old Father Time or Tash etc..
