2. C.S. Lewis. The Magician's Nephew. 208 pages. HarperCollins Press. Alright, I cheated. I listened to the first two books of the Narnia series. This one is the sixth book in series, but chronologically is first. Two kids use magic rings to get to Narnia--and see how it all began.
3. C.S. Lewis. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. 176 pages. HarperCollins Press. The first book in the series. There are a number of great illustrations for our spiritual lives: the crucifixion of Jesus, the rebellion of the sinner, and the victory of Christ.
