my advice on the Golden Compass

So I had a comment on my last post, a woman asking me if it is appropriate for her 10 & 11 year old to see the movie or read the books.

Me personally, if I had kids, I wouldn't worry so much about it. But that is because I read all the books and saw the movie on Friday. I think that a lot of the discussions surrounding the book do need to happen with adults. Discussions about the church abusing power through centuries, discussions about how we put God in a box and forget that God is in everything.

So... here's my advice. Read the books, see the movie, then make an informed decision.

In the meantime, check out these interviews with Philip Pullman on beliefnet. I think they say a lot about Pullman's intentions, and really opened my eyes to even more of the theology that weaves its way through the books. Fascinating stuff really...
