Overview

A missing prince . . . a mysterious Green Lady . . . an underground world of gnomes and giants . . . and an enchantment that must be broken by three unlikely companions. This is a journey into the depths of Narnia—where magic, darkness, and deception await at every turn.

As The Silver Chair begins, Eustace and his schoolmate Jill are running away from bullies at school, when they unexpectedly find themselves in the enchanted land of Narnia and in the very presence of the great lion Aslan. Soon they join their strange but courageous friend Puddleglum on a dangerous quest to find and rescue the heir to Narnia’s throne.

Fully dramatized and produced with cinema-quality sound design and music, The Silver Chair is the sixth of seven audio dramas in the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre production of The Chronicles of Narnia. Hosted by Douglas Gresham, stepson of C. S. Lewis, and recorded in London, these timeless adventures are brought to life by a cast of talented actors, including award winners Paul Scofield, David Suchet, and Ron Moody.

This is a repackaged, individual title from the bestselling Radio Theatre resource The Chronicles of Narnia, which has sold more than 950,000 copies.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo.
