Customer Review

on 24 October 2008
The title of this book is really misleading. True, Watkins explores Phillip Pullman's ideas - but his perspective is firmly rooted in his role as a Christian polemicist. For `A Thinking Fan's Guide', read `A Christian Critic's Guide'. This book is published by the evangelical Christian 'Damaris Trust', of which Watkins is a member. So be warned: unless you want to waste your hard-earned cash on a polemical Christian defence of The Authority and The Magisterium, look elsewhere for useful background material to Pullman's excellent trilogy.
