Free Download: Ken Myers and Alan Jacobs Discuss “The Golden Compass”

Check out this free Mars Hill Audio download of Ken Myers talking with literary critic Alan Jacobs about Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass.

There are a lot of hysterical Christians out there speaking in ignorance about Pullman’s books and the upcoming film. But there are also some Christians offering perceptive examinations of the stories… at least as perceptive, if not more so, than any other reviews yet published. See what you think of Jacobs’ perspective. (You’ll also find his review of The Amber Spyglass at First Things.)

Coming soon: The Kindlings Muse features a discussion of The Golden Compass, hosted by Dick Staub.

    I loved this episode of Auditions. I wasn’t too up on the whole Golden Compass fracas until I listened to the podcast.
