A worldview adventure for readers young and old alike about a boy named Josiah who learns important lessons from some unlikely visitors. Get ready to meet Gilbert, a talking owl, who is joined again by three of his friends in this the second book of "The Owlings" series, to explain some of the greatest truths in all the world — that the world doesn't exist by or for itself.
The new Owlings book is a simple story to help younger readers, older ones as well, to begin to grasp the power of the Christian view of the world. While the book hits on many moral themes like poverty, contentment, bullying, charity, sympathy, generosity, and the like, its main goal is to demonstrate the limits of science.
C.S. Lewis, the beloved author of Narnia, said it well, “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” Like Lewis, DeWitt believes that Christianity best explains not only the natural world, but also the human experience.
Lewis serves as inspiration for these stories in more ways than one. C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien famously met to discuss their stories with a small group of friends that became known as “The Inklings.” Two other British authors are often associated with this group in terms of similar interests and influence: Dorothy Sayers and G.K. Chesterton. These four serve as the inspiration for the owls: Clive, Gilbert, Dorothy, and Reuel.
The Owlings: Book Two also includes a short afterword for parents and a discussion guide.
