The book is already receiving some wonderful endorsements:
I am asked again and again by lovers of Narnia if there is a book out there that will help them understand the deeper Christian meanings of The Chronicles of Narnia. I am happy to say that that much desired book now exists. Will Vaus’s The Hidden Story of Narnia offers a clear and concise analysis of the spiritual architecture that undergirds each of the Chronicles, and it does so in a language that should prove equally challenging and accessible to academics, non-academics, college and high school students, and even well-read children. Vaus makes clear all the links between Aslan and Christ and between the Narnia books and the Bible. But he goes far beyond this. He also links the themes of the Narnia books to the vast corpus of Lewis’s other works so as to make clear the unity of Lewis’s Christian worldview. He further challenges his readers to see and wrestle with the greater moral and ethical dimensions of the Chronicles, highlighting the nature of virtue and vice in a manner that would surely have gained Lewis’s hearty approval. He concludes by laying down seven guidelines for living like a Narnian that are practical without being didactic and that will help his readers to carry the message of Narnia into their own lives.

The Hidden Story of Narnia splendidly connects all seven of the Narnia books with not only their biblical correspondences but also with relevant passages from Lewis's other works, allowing readers to journey further up and further in with their understanding of and their appreciation for this great writer and thinker.

In this book, noted C. S. Lewis scholar Will Vaus charts the points of spiritual intersection between the seven Chronicles of Narnia books and the Bible. The Hidden Story of Narnia maps a path into Narnia and back again into our world for those who wish to understand the spiritual ideas and allusions in Lewis’s beloved Narnia tales. Suitable for group study as well as individual benefit.
