“The breath of the Almighty gives me life.” —Job 33:4
In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, four children find themselves in Narnia, a land placed under a curse by a wicked queen in which it’s always winter and never Christmas. The queen’s castle is filled with statues of her enemies that she has turned to stone.
Then the children encounter Aslan the lion. They see him lay down his life for Narnia and watch as the curse begins to be reversed. In a breathtaking climax, Aslan puts the sisters on his back and races to the castle to liberate those turned to stone.
“What an extraordinary place!” cried Lucy. “All those stone animals—and people, too. It’s—it’s like a museum.”
“Hush,” said Susan. “Aslan is doing something.”1
This world is under the curse of the wicked one. As far as we can see, he has turned hearts everywhere to stone. But Aslan is doing something.
