Anti-Narnia, beware

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes yet another blockbuster from our good friends on the West Coast. According to movie critic Ted Baehr, the new film, The Golden Compass, is actually An Atheist’s Narnia. Based on the first book in Philip Pullman’s fantasy trilogy entitled His Dark Materials, the big budget fantasy won’t be released to theaters until December 7, but it is already receiving a heady dose of Hollywood’s pre-holiday hype.
Another website which has scenes and quotes is Snopes.

According to Baehr, Pullman wrote the book “because he was so upset by the Christian evangelism of C.S. Lewis.” Thus, dedicated to undermining Christianity and the Church among young readers, he represents God as a decrepit and perverse angel “who captures the dead in a prison camp afterlife.” And things only get worse from there. Just what we all needed for Pearl Harbor Day--yet another insidious attack!

Our family was just enjoying Narnia last night and we love a good movie. And I used to like Nicole Kidman too! Guess that one won't be it!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm not sure if this is the catalog you were thinking of but I've bought books through Queen Homeschool supplies, Co. . Blessings!

You know what? I bought that book from a bookstore years ago and gave it to my son to read....
he couldn't get past the beginning.
Thank goodness!
