Awake. Love. Think. Speak: Language, Ikon, & Creativity in a Discordant World
With his wondrously life-giving breath, Aslan speaks, his voice deep and wild as it soars above the silence of a new creation, "Narnia, Narnia, Narnia, awake. Love. Think. speak. Be walking trees. Be talking beasts. Be divine waters." C.S. Lewis, in The Magician's Nephew, so presciently expresses the mere Christian foundation upon which we base our creative responses to the current complexities of our culture.
