What, seriously? Dude, I found A Wrinkle in Time entirely too Christianity-based, myself. I guess this is the same strain of not-grasping-a-metaphor that had Jack Chick recommend burning Narnia books in early editions of Dark Dungeons.

Yeah, seriously. And yes: Wrinkle does skew pretty heavily Christian. Christian imagery/morality in Harry Potter, too, for that matter.

Aslan would've had to have been named "Jesus H. Aslan" for some readers to have gotten it.
