In C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia, Mr. Beaver describes the Christ-figure, Aslan the Lion, in these words to Susan: “Aslan is a lion—the Lion, the great Lion.” “Ooh” said Susan. “I'd thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion”…”Safe?" said Mr Beaver. "Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.”
