Interviews with atheists and agnostics ("just chilling until we find out otherwise that the Big Guy exists") = insomnia cure. Zzzzzzzz.

Carl-- good timing!

I think I want to prepare a small presentation to give at local parishes, CCD programs, etc., to help parents and younger readers 1) see what's wrong with these books and 2) explain #1 to others coherently.

Can you point me towards any good books or articles? I gave similar presentations a few years ago when the Da Vinci Crock movie came out, and drew heavily on an invaluable book by Sandra Miesel and some guy who's name I forget. Maybe you're familiar with it... :-) Anything of a similar vein regarding His Dark Materials??

Margaret

Doh!!! Whose, not who's...

Carl Olson

Anything of a similar vein regarding His Dark Materials??

Sandra Miesel and Pete Vere are finishing up a pamphlet about Pullman and "His Dark Materials" that Ignatus Press will be publishing ASAP. That guy whose name you have understandably and rightly forgotten is writing an intro to the pamphlet. Information to come very soon, so stay tuned!

Margaret

Ex-----cellent.

And seriously, Carl, The Da Vinci Hoax was unbelievably helpful. I did not have the time to go pouring through tons of books about church, art and ancient-medieval history to find what I needed.

Me either. Which is why I hired Tom Hanks to do it for me. ;-)

Thanks for the kind words!

Great post. Captures some main points against Pullman very well. Someone asked about resources. There aren't very many out there, but give that time. Ya'll might want to consider my 15 page analysis linked off of the link associated with this comment.
