    Oh yeah! These books were totally anti-religion/Church (especially by the 3rd book). However, they were still enjoyable to read…and I'm a Christian (though admittedly a liberal one who knows how not to let other people's beliefs upset me too much).

    I do suggest you guys give the books a try ifin you've got the time. If I had HBO, I'd check out this series for sure.

    Also, YAY XANTH NOVELS!! I loved those growing up!!

    one of my favorite series but only read them once, and it's been awhile. I recall that Philip Pullman publicly talked about his atheism, and I think it may be a facet in the storytelling. They mention in the trailor stealing children, but it's not for the reasons we see children getting kidnapped in our society. As I'm starting to remember the ambience of these books and certain plot points that I won't spoil, it makes me want to re-read them. I hope they are interpreted well in this show. I'm quite excited about seeing it.

    Dave F says:

    Yeah, it was lumped in with 'books that Christians don't approve of' – but unlike Potter, these books don't approve of Christians either. And, yeah, the controversy was about a bit more than just 'magic.
