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.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

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