Music Inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a collection of songs by various Christian artists with the common theme of C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia. The album was released in anticipation of the December 9, 2005 premiere of the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The artists are Christian music personalities, such as Bethany Dillon, Kutless, and tobyMac. By October 2005, the songs "Remembering You" by Steven Curtis Chapman and "Waiting For The World To Fall" by Jars of Clay were already being played on Contemporary Christian radio.

Relient K, Mae, and the Newsboys wrote songs ("In Like a Lion (Always Winter)" for Relient K, "Where the Falls Begin" for Mae, and "Something to Believe In" for the Newsboys) to be considered to be included on the album. When they were not asked to be on the album, the bands released the songs on their Apathetic EP (Relient K), The Everglow Special Edition (Mae), and Go: Special Edition (Newsboys) respectively. Relient K also re-released their Narnia song on their Christmas album Let it Snow, Baby... Let it Reindeer.
