Chattaway’s Email Conversation with “Golden Compass” Author Philip Pullman

Peter T. Chattaway has a new article about The Golden Compass up at

But even more interesting… here is the transcript of his email interview with author Philip Pullman.

If there is anybody out there agreeing with Donna Frietas… that The Golden Compass is a work of deep Christian theology… I recommend you consider the things Pullman says in this interview.

Plus, Pullman says a few things about his upcoming work, in which he says he’ll be saying “a whole lot” about Jesus.

In case you missed my own perspective on the book, the movie, and the controversy, I posted it here last week.
