However, Steve Hays from Triablogue still thought it was worth mentioning, so Ryan posted a link to his review on their group blog. Now, his review is getting some attention.
Today, Hays comments on the growing secular response: "Anatomy of a rumble." Here are some of Hays introductory comments:
Ryan is a Christian who's actually seen the movie. And the point of his review is that, whatever its agenda, the movie unwittingly deconstructs its own message.
Now, I figured that if anyone would be offended by the review, it might be Christians who missed the point of what Ryan was saying.
The film doesn't intentionally present a Christian worldview. Rather, it ends up presenting a Christian worldview in spite of itself.
And, as a matter of fact, his review did trigger a very negative reaction. Mind you, Triablogue is no stranger to controversy, so that's fine with me.
As it turns out, though, all the hue and cry came, not from the Evangelical community, but from a weblog linked to The Secular Outpost, which is an arm of The Secular Web.
And it's very instructive to see how unbelievers behave when their back is to the wall.
It is indeed.
