159. The Last Battle

New Warhorn Media post by Nathan Alberson:

This was an uncomfortable and disappointing book to read even when I wasn’t prepared to be critical of it. I might save listening to this episode until I have a drink and some quiet time.

Anyhow, I can’t say I’m looking forward to hearing what I expect to be an excoriation of Lewis, but I will listen.

We are not as excoriating as we thought we would be

This is a very saturnine book.

Nitpick… the Emeth episode is a worrisome display of inclusivism as opposed to universalism. They are both false and tempt us to complacency but universalism is worse. Sorry if you clarified that and I missed it.

I’ve been telling all of our friends for years that they should be more like me and my wife so THANK YOU!!!


You are correct! In fact your lasting positive impressions have given me cause to go back and re-read The Last Battle, so thank you!

Also, I think I must just be bad at criticism, despite my degree in English. My favorite Narnia book is still A Horse and His Boy and the objective second best Harry Potter book is The Order of the Phoenix. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


You kicked this episode off with some great Narnia puns. Not the October puns I was prepared for…

We aim to please. :smiling_imp:

Speaking for myself, I love the episodes where they go after C.S. Lewis. I love contrarians. They keep us honest.
