Writing in Canada's National Post, Michael Coren wonders how Prince Caspian will turn out. This is Disney's second film based on the Narnia series by CS Lewis, and will open in movie theatres on May 16. Critics of the first Narnia film wanted children warned that it was "a Christian story".

Coren proceeds to describe CS Lewis, "perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England", and the logical lucidity of his Christian beliefs. Lewis taught at Oxford and Cambridge.

Coren's interesting summary of Lewis, whose "humility equalled his brilliance" is here.
