For decades, readers and scholars have wondered whether there was a Master Plan for the structure of the seven books in C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia. In his book Planet Narnia, Michael Ward makes a compelling case that the qualities attributed to the seven planets in the cosmology of antiquity and the Middle Ages are embodied in the seven books about Narnia. In this Conversation with Ken Myers, Ward explains why Lewis thought the pre-Copernican view of the cosmos can still be of spiritual benefit; that view may not be true (in the sense of factual), but its beauty reveals deeper truths.
