Read full description of the books:
I really hate that this book equates good with disinterested. I couldn't get past that, and then, to hammer in the blurb on the back's "young people are going to enjoy every bit as much as The Golden Compass," on page 138, "There was a certain arrogance about the bird's demeanor as he hung there above them all, passing his benevolent eyes from one to another, as distant as a priest handing out communion."
There are too many places to begin attacking that analogy. My husband is a priest, and he takes the time to prepare himself, body and spirit, to celebrate (not officiate at) the Liturgy, and to pray for each person whom he names as they partake of the Divine Gifts. He does not "hand out communion." I know, there may be some priests of whatever background, but this felt like a slap across the face. Another factor was that I recently asked him whether he ever thought about the baby we lost through miscarriage, and he said he prays for the child each time he celebrates the Liturgy.
I remember my father talking about how it wasn't enough to be pro-life, that you couldn't value human life for the sake of human life. You can value human life because it is a gift from God. This book distorts the truth beyond anything I'd care to read, and I can't maintain the suspension of disbelief for this kind of writing.
I hurt for Ms. Thompson, too. What kind of awful view of Christianity must this writing come from?
