Reasons the Narnia books are better than Lord of the Elfmovies # 4

Apathy Jack writes:

Okay, they may all be increasingly obvious Christian tracts, but I’m beginning to think that CS Lewis was onto something.

In The Last Battle, he hypothesises that the battle of Revelations will be fought against people who wear Turbans and look awfully Arabic. Also, that this war will, in fact, be started primarily by the Narnians themselves, after they allow themselves to become ruled by a corrupt thing that looks like a monkey but claims to be a human, and claims to rule with the divine right of the One True God. However, the Monkey is stupid, and allows himself to be manipulated and lead to war by his advisors.

I think there might be something to this...
