Many people do not believe in God or Jesus and a lot of today’s definition of “art” supports this. However, there are still some authors and movie directors that not only believe but show this in their work. It is stated in Lewis’s biography that The Chronicles of Narnia, did, in fact, have a Christian theme. The main character portraying this was Aslan, the Lion and the King of Narnia, as he is said to have been a Jesus Christ figure. Another example

interest in and to connect with the characters (Brennan). Two major characters that act as large biblical allegories include Aslan and Reepicheep. Aslan is the “noble lion of Narnia,” and acts as a Christ figure. Lewis explains that if there were a world like Narnia, and the world were to become corrupt like Earth, Jesus would enter Narnia as a lion because He would want to fit into the world of talking beasts.
