A “His Dark Materials” Caution… back in 2002

My brother-in-law Derrek just brought something to my attention I’d forgotten.

Five years ago, I posted an alert that The Golden Compass was about to be made into a movie. Then I invited people to suggest how Christians should respond, considering the content of the books.

Now that the film has come and gone and made very little fuss at the U.S. box office, it’s interesting to look back and reconsider such early tremors.

So if you’re curious, here’s that five-year-old link.

And isn’t it interesting that very little happened in the way of discussion about the books. It was only when the movie arrived… more than a decade after the book’s publication… that suddenly folks started acting as if this was some new “threat,” and the chain-email protests began.

Anyway, we now return to 2008.
