Fifty Shades of Grey: A Constructive Response

I’m going out on a limb here, but I’m guessing you’ve heard about a book (now a film) entitled Fifty Shades of Grey, by E. L. James. When the film was released a month or so ago, my Facebook wall was plastered with Christian responses (or responses by Christians) to it, all pretty much decrying its presentation of a ‘romantic’ relationship. My friend, Jon, is the first Christian I know to be offering a more constructive reading of James’s book, taking into account its origins as Twilight fan fiction, and I thought I’d link to the posts he’s, um, posted so far. Here’s part one and part two.
