The Kindlings Muse: A conversation about… yeah, you guessed it…

Okay, my apologies to those who are sick of hearing about The Golden Compass.

For those who aren’t, here’s a download of the latest conversation at The Kindlings Muse. We had a rousing chat about the author, the books, and the new movie.

This special edition of TKM at the Movies with host Dick Staub, focuses on the controversial Phillip Pullman, whose trilogy is getting a big boost from a film based on the first book, The Golden Compass. The show was suggested by a most interesting friend and independent thinker, Adrian Wyard of the Counterbalance Foundation, who desires that Christians not overreact. We are then joined by our regular guests, Jeffrey Overstreet film critic, author of Auralia’s Colors and Through a Screen Darkly, and Greg Wright, Managing Editor of HollywoodJesus.com and Past the Popcorn.

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.
