Saw this quote in the review of the new movie, “The Golden Compass” – it’s in a discussion of the economics of making movies with overtly religious messages:
“New Line made a bid [for financial success] with The Nativity Story in 2006, a prequel to The Passion. It bombed.”
So much information about the interaction between faith and culture is present in that one sentence.
At least, perhaps unknowingly, the author got something fundamentally right – the Nativity is a prequel to the Passion.
I think I’ll need to pray on it for a while.
Read the rest here.
