The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Is Christianity in film adaptation a Jewish concern?” The question is posed by Joe Eskenazi, staff writer for “J” magazine. In fact, Eskenazi’s article was the cover story in last week’s edition of the magazine. He quotes one rabbi as saying:

“Should Jewish children see this movie or read the books? I’m unsure. My personal jury is still out. I read them. Clearly it didn’t affect my personal theology.” But he also says years after the rabbi read the books, he “was told they were steeped in Christian allegories” and he was “surprised and embarrassed. I hadn’t realized. I felt duped.”

Read the article in its entirety.

As for Jews for Jesus, we had fun writing a new broadside tract about the film. Download a free copy that you can duplicate and hand out.
