Another Quiz?

Here's another quiz from Fred Sanders at The Scriptorium Daily. It's a vocabulary quiz from A Horse and His Boy, by C.S. Lewis, that Fred put together for a college course he taught on the book.

I've been mulling over for some time putting together lessons to teach The Chronicles of Narnia for an adult Sunday School class. The only thing that has caused me to hesitate is that I'm afraid we'd have to rush through them in order to get the set completed within a year, but I still may do it. What has not caused me to hesitate, is that they are children's books. These books were written for children, but they are the best kind of books written for children, with the bigger themes of life woven through them, such as: our relationship to God, God's reaching down to us, Gods providence and our free will, sin, repentance, forgiveness, results of unrepentance, redemption of all of creation. Not exactly lightweight books, but lots of fun and very touching and relatable. If they help improve one's vocabulary, all the better.
