Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., 2007 - 175 páginas
Best selling authors of Finding God in the Lord of the RingsKurt Bruner and Jim Ware team up again in a study of Philip Pullman's popular His Dark Materialsfantasy series. Unlike authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis, Pullman writes from an intentionally anti-Christian perspective. As the authors explore Pullman's themes, characters, and charges against Christianity, they ultimately conclude that though Pullman intended to do just the opposite, he has created a cosmos that seems to confirm the existence of a loving God—one where truth wins out over deception, grace trumps the virtue of self-reliance, and relationship is prized above independence. Released in conjunction with the major feature film, Shedding Light on His Dark Materialswill equip parents, teachers, and readers to better understand and respond to Pullman's brilliant but troubling work.
