The Issue of Christian Values — 5 years ago
I do think it’s possible to read and enjoy this even as a non-Christian. But it can be difficult to ignore the overt Christian themes and lessons, plus the way it constantly suggests that if you don’t agree with every single Christian value taught in the book than you must be a horrible person. Even so, I still found it an interesting book to read, not only as a good fantasy tale but I enjoy seeing connections between modern day fantasy and ancient mythology/religion. Just because I find it interesting does not necessarily mean I have to either believe every Christian value or despise them. I read them as an adult though so this may have something to do with it.
