    It would be so sad to seeing people handing out leaflets outside of the cinema, much in line with a lot of what happened with ‘The Passion Of The Christ’.
    It just does not show respect for the artform. These books aren’t written for propaganda purposes.

    It’s a bit off topic, but they just had a showing of TLTWTW right next to my hometown and one of my teacher friends was lucky enough to get in to see it (sans special effects). She said it was amazing…even without all the effects!!!

    Yay!!!

    I agree. Great art speaks for itself. I had a Muslim friend who greatlt enjoyed the Narnia books as a kid, and was shocked to find out it was a Christian allegory. Rather than blatantly using it as propaganda, a better use would be to explore the themes in the Narnia books – what is evil, how is it overcome – in a non-religious manner. Let people come to their own conclusions.

  • The Cubicle Reverend

    Any discussions of this nature will come naturally. To force it by “evangelistic attempts” will be forced and impersonal. Let the movie stand for itself and the conversations on faith, etc. will come on it’s own.

  • Peter T Chattaway

    Turning this film into a mere evangelism tool is almost certainly a bad idea. I blogged this a few days ago, using quotes from an e-mail interview I did a few months ago with Doug Gresham.
