What About The Golden Compass?

The rumbling is beginning. Christians concerned for the faith of their children are warning about the dangers of Philip Pullman's book "The Golden Compass" and the soon-to-be-released movie of the same title. Some will ask if this is persecution, an attack on Christianity, and wonder how should we respond as believers.

Christianity Today Movies critic Jeffrey Overstreet has written one of the best articles that I have read on the subject. His call is for Christians to respond with discernment but not fear. He writes, "God is not threatened by Philip Pullman. And people who stop to think through Pullman's story, and how he "refutes" Christianity, will see what a feeble "attack" against Christian belief it really is."
