Dr. Mohler and The Golden Compass

I just finished reading Dr. Al Mohler’s most recent blog which was written a few days ago on Dec. 4th. He has made comments in the past on The Golden Compass and especially has offered many well-informed insights on the “New Atheist” movement in the country. I only want to direct your attention to his article which is brief, but long enough to get a little technical and critical (in the positive sense of the term) of the issue of Phillip Pullman’s books and their respective forthcoming movies this Christmas. Dr. Mohler has seen the movies and so he integrates his thoughts on Pullman’s story and intention based upon the aggressive atheistic fervor of the books and how that spirit comes out in the movie. Click here to read Dr. Mohler’s blog; I think you will find his treatment of it both fair and wise. We all ought to continue to give thanks to the Lord for men like Dr. Mohler, Alister McGrath, and Charles Colson who are constantly and solidly equipping God’s people while simultaneously standing upright in the firing range of the secular world, admirably defending the faith of Jesus Christ. I pray that God will continue to raise up more and more of us who will take on such a calling.
