Mohler on Pullman

So Phil leaves for the other side of the world, and I'm thinking I can now relax a bit since he is not here to give me more "suggestions." But, alas, there is now email that keeps us linked. He thinks my readers will appreciate Al Mohler's analysis of both the move "The Golden Compass" and the series of books written by Philip Pullman. It is one of the more thoughtful responses you will read -

Marion - I appreciate Mohler's analysis of the movie and books. A more well rounded discussion comes from Jeffrey Overstreet, film critic for CT, in an interview that I found very helpful. One of his stronger points is that "Pullman has painted a picture of the church... that basically reflects only those ways in which the church has abused power". He also talks about how to discuss the books/movie with your kids by asking questions that challenge Pullman's worldview.
