At what point do we become too old to read fairy tales? Ideally, never, according to Dr. David Fagerberg, professor of Liturgical studies in Notre Dame’s Theology Department. We outgrow fairy tales because they seem simple, and it’s not until we return to them with our own children that we recognize their depth and ability to transport us to another world. Adults would do well to recover the fairy tale, suggests Fagerberg, who is particularly popular for his classes on the fiction of C.S. Lewis. Featured in the McGrath Institute’s annual Lenten lecture series this past year, Fagerberg addressed what Lewis hopes for us to find in Narnia.
