The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is C.S. Lewis’s classic children’s book and parable of the Easter story.

Many of you know the story, but I’ll give you a quick summary. Edmund, the younger boy, is seduced by the witch’s chocolates and turns traitor on his friends. According to the Ancient Law written on the Stone Table--Deep Magic from the Dawn of Time--the witch now has the right to demand Edmund's blood. As she explains: "Every traitor belongs to me as my lawful prey and...for every treachery I have a right to a kill."
