Philip Pullman Vs. C.S. Lewis

Author Philip Pullman has accused C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia as having a "reactionary," "dishonest" agenda, which I found interesting as I thought the last book in Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy for teens was the most proselytizing piece of atheistic fantasy I've read in a long time. (It's about to be made into a movie, by the way.) Here's a great article by Michael Nelson called "For the Love of Narnia" from the Chronicle of Higher Education that argues against Pullman most convincingly.
