Focus on the Family has been creating family-friendly audio drama for a few decades now. One of their most well-known shows is Adventures in Odyssey, which now has over 800 episodes to listen to. But they've also produced audio drama adaptations of a number of great, classic books over the years. One such example is The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. These children's stories have been delighting families for well over half a century. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a favorite for many. And this month The Silver Chair, another book in the Narnia series, celebrates 65 years since its original publication. Focus on the Family has produced an audio dramatization of all seven stories in The Chronicles of Narnia. They were each recorded in London with an all-star cast of England's brightest talent from the stage and screen, an original orchestral score, and cinema-quality digital sound design. The complete Chronicles of Narnia set includes over 22 hours of entertainment on 19 CDs. You can find this and more Focus on the Family Radio Theatre productions on CD and MP3 from Amazon, iTunes, Tyndale and Christianbook.
