Die vier Pevensie-kinders sit nog ewe mismoedig op die stasie en wag vir die trein wat hulle moet terugneem skool toe, toe Lucy skielik 'n pluk voel. Dan voel Edmund dit ook, en 'n minuut later Susan en Peter ook. In 'n ommesientjie verdwyn die stasie en bevind die kinders hulle in 'n ruie woud langs die see, naby die bouval van wat vroeer hulle kasteel, Kair Paravel, was. Hulle is terug in die magiese land Narnia, waar hulle as konings en koninginne geheers het in Die leeu, die heks en die klerekas. Iets is egter nie pluis nie. Hulle eens majesteuese kasteel is 'n ruine en dis oral vreemd stil en leeg. Deur Troempels die dwerg leer hulle van die tragiese lot wat Narnia getref het: Burgeroorlog is besig om die land te verwoes en die dapper Prins Kaspian probeer moedig om sy regmatige koninkryk uit sy bose oom Miraz se kloue te red. Kaspian het egter hulp nodig en met Aslan se leiding aanvaar die kinders die uitdaging om Narnia weer 'n vrolike en vry land te maak.
Toe Sjasta uitvind hy’s nie regtig die arm visserman Arsjeesj se seun nie, is hy verras en selfs 'n bietjie verlig. Hy’t in elk geval nog nooit soos 'n Kalormeen gevoel nie. Dit beteken hy kan enigiemand wees! In sy wildste drome sou hy hom egter nie die verrassings en avonture kon voorstel wat op hom wag wanneer hy deur die pratende perd Bree oortuig word om Kalormen te verlaat en na die magiese koninkryk van Narnia te vertrek nie. Hulle reis is propvol gevaar en intrige: eers deur die bose stad Tasjbaan, dan verby grieselrige grafkelders van oerkonings en dan deur 'n skynbaar nimmereindigende woestyn tot by die hoe berge van Argenland. En wanneer Narnia reeds op die horison wink, besef Sjasta die grootste uitdaging le nog voor hom: “As jy dit opmors, gaan jy elke geveg in jou lewe opmors. Dis nou of nooit.”
In Die laaste geveg – die sewende en laaste aflewering in Die kronieke van Narnia – keer Jill en Eustace terug na Narnia om die magiese land te red van ondergang. Die slinkse aap Swendel het die donkie warboel verlei om hom met 'n leeuvel te vermom en die diere en dwerge te laat glo hy is die ware Aslan. Chaos dreig en oorlog tussen die Narniane en die Kalormene is onafwendbaar. Sal die kinders Narnia van ondergang kan red? Die laaste geveg is danksy Kobus Geldenhuys se uitmuntende vertaling nou vir die eerste keer in Afrikaans beskikbaar.
Net toe Jill Pole na die langste en goorste skoolkwartaal in haar lewe begin opsien, gebeur iets magies: Sy en Eustace Scrubb beland in Narnia! Aslan gee aan hulle vier tekens en 'n opdrag: om Prins Rilian, wat jare gelede spoorloos verdwyn het, op te spoor en terug te bring na Kair Paravel. Ongelukkig is die kinders so meegevoer deur hulle nuwe omgewing dat die eerste drie tekens heeltemal by hulle verbygaan. Sal hulle die vierde teken ook mis – of sal hulle daarin slaag om Prins Rilian met sy sterwende vader te herenig? Die silwer stoel, briljant vertaal deur Kobus Geldenhuys, verskyn hiermee vir die heel eerste keer in Afrikaans.
Alhoewel die eerste vier boeke in die wereldbekende Kronieke van Narnia met verloop van tyd drupsgewys en deur verskillende uitgewers in Afrikaans vertaal is, is Protea Boekhuis se publikasie van Die vaart van die dagbreker 'n eerste: Dis nie net die vyfde titel in die reeks se debuut in Afrikaans nie, maar ook die eerste van Kobus Geldenhuys se uitmuntende vertalings wat uiteindelik al sewe boeke in die reeks onder die Protea-vaandel sal verenig. In Die vaart van die dagbreker beland Edmund en Lucy Pevensie saam met hulle mislike nefie Eustace Scrubb aan boord van die dagbreker – die skip waarmee Prins Kaspian onderweg is na die eensame eilande op soek na die sewe lords van Narnia wat jare gelede spoorloos verdwyn het. Op die gevaarlike reis trotseer hulle allerlei uitdagings– maar die droom om tot by Aslan se land aan die einde van die wereld te seil bly groter as enige vrees vir die onbekende.
Tydens een van die koudste en natste somers in jare, besluit Polly en Digory om die soldervloer van hulle ou ry verdiepinghuise te gaan verken. Versigtig klouter hulle oor die dakbalke en al met die lang tonnel af wat hulle blyplekke aan die lee huis langsaan verbind. Digory is seker hulle gaan 'n bende gevaarlike misdadigers daar betrap en dan 'n beloning kry. As 'n huis al vir soveel jare leeg staan, moet daar tog een of ander geheim wees, nie waar nie? Dis daarom amper 'n teleurstelling toe hulle maar net op Digory se oom Andrew in 'n geheime werkkamer afkom. Maar dan laat 'n wilde eksperiment vir Polly soos mis voor die son verdwyn – en ontaard die vervelige somer in 'n naelbytavontuur.
Toe die Tweede Wereldoorlog uitbreek, word Edmund, Peter, Susan en Lucy uit Londen weggegestuur om by 'n ou familievriend op die Engelse platteland te gaan woon. Met die dat ou professor Kirke skynbaar heeltemal in sy eie wereld leef, kan die kinders ongestoord na hulle eie vermaak soek in sy yslike ou huis in die middel van nerens. Eers is daar die opwinding van die huis verken: lang gange, eindelose spaarkamers, vertrek op vertrek vol boeke en dan een enorme kamer waarin daar niks behalwe 'n groot klerekas staan nie. Dit, dink Lucy, verdien nadere ondersoek. Terwyl sy nog haar pad deur die rye jasse binne-in die kas oopdruk, voel sy meteens iets sag en poeierig en yskoud op haar val en ontdek dat sy in die middel van 'n woud staan. Dis aand, en daar’s sneeu onder haar voete en sneeuvlokkies dwarrel deur die lug. Lucy het sowaar in die vreemde towerwereld van Narnia beland. Die tweede avontuur in die opwindende Kronieke van Narnia ¬– meesterlik vertaal deur Kobus Geldenhuys.

Special 65th Anniversary Edition One of the most popular and beloved introductions to the concept of faith ever written, `Mere Christianity' has sold millions of copies worldwide.

Together in one special volume, selections from the best of beloved, bestselling author C. S. Lewis's classic works for readers contemplating the `grand miracle' of Jesus's resurrection. Preparing for Easter is a concise, handy companion for the faithful of all Christian traditions and the curious to help them deepen their knowledge and consideration of this holy season - a time of reflection as we consider Jesus's sacrifice and his joyous rise from the dead. Carefully curated, each selection in Preparing for Easter draws on a major theme in Lewis's writings on the Christian life, as well as others that consider why we can have confident faith in what happened on the cross.
One of C. S. Lewis' works of fiction, or more specifically allegory, this book is clearly modelled upon Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, as Lewis cleverly satirizes different sections of the Church. Written within a year of Lewis' conversion, it characterises the various theological and temperamental leanings of the time. This brilliant and biting allegory has lost none of its freshness and theological profundity, as the pilgrims pass the City of Claptrap, the tableland of the High Anglicans and the far-off marsh of the Theosophists. As ever, Lewis says memorably in brief what would otherwise have demanded a full-length philosophy of religion.

How to Be a Christian brings together the best of Lewis's insights on Christian practice and its expression in our daily lives. Cultivated from his many essays, articles, and letters, as well as his classic works. From the revered teacher and best-selling author of such classic Christian works as Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters comes a collection that gathers the best of C. S. Lewis's practical advice on how to embody a Christian life. The most famous adherent and defender of Christianity in the twentieth century, C. S. Lewis has long influenced our perceptions and understanding of the faith. More than fifty years after his death, Lewis's arguments remain extraordinarily persuasive because they originate from his deep insights into the Christian life itself. Only an intellectual of such profound faith could form such cogent and compelling reasons for its truth. By provoking readers to more carefully ponder their faith, How to Be a Christian can help readers forge a deeper understanding of their personal beliefs and what is means to be a Christian, and strengthen their profound relationship with God.
Sent to wait out the war in the English countryside, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie discover Professor Digory Kirke's mysterious wardrobe, in actuality a gateway to the magical land of Narnia.

Through these works, Lewis explores issues of good and evil, and his remarkable and vividly imaginative descriptions of other worlds cements his place as a first-class author of science fiction adventure.
As well as his many books, letters and poems, C.S. Lewis also wrote a great number of essays and shorter pieces on various subjects. He wrote extensively on Christian theology and the defence of faith, but also on various ethical issues and on the nature of literature and story-telling.
This second volume (of two) collects together all Lewis’s religious essays. Grouped together by topic, there are over 50 essays covering The Search for God, Aspects of Faith, The Christian in the World, The Church, and also a selection of his Letters on the subject of Christianity.
”C S Lewis is the ideal persuader for the half-convinced, for the good man who would like to be a Christain but finds his intellect getting in the way.”
A beautiful paperback edition of The Magician's Nephew, book one in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. This edition is complete with cover and interior art by the original illustrator, Pauline Baynes. On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them.

A collection of Lewis's essays against `the new morality' - a fine collection representing Lewis at his most brilliant. Published shortly after his death, aiming to make available some of his writings which were not at that time publicly accessible, and to counter the prevailing new morality of the sixties, `Christian Reflections' gives a robust defence of the Christian Gospel. Now, fifty years later, when Christian communities are, in our own day, struggling to come to terms with a shifting morality, this little volume will be a comforting reminder of the never-changing truths of the faith. As ever, Lewis's clear and eloquent mind gives plenty of food for thought, especially as he aims his intellectual ammunition at the modern myths still so prevalent in our post-modern culture.
