According to an article by Andrew Greeley, HarperCollins plans to "purge the Christian content" from C.S. Lewis\' The Chronicles of Narnia in an effort to make the series more palatable to "secularists."
The situation\'s not as bad as Greeley makes it out to be. As the New York Times article cited by Greeley indicates, the original Chronicles aren\'t being censored of their religious content. Rather, it\'s a marketing campaign for the re-issued books, as well as spinoff merchandise (including new books by unidentified authors), which will be void of Christian themes.
