Harry Potter Watch

With just a little more than three weeks until Book Seven ...  Alan Jacobs of Wheaton College offers his speculations on how it will all end.  I tend to agree with the author of this enjoyable book, John Granger, that the Harry Potter books are "the most charming and challenging Christian fiction for children since Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia."  The themes of the power of sacrificial love, the dangers of pride, the imperative of justice for the downtrodden, etc., are unmistakable though never heavy-handed.  Then there's this catalog of J.K. Rowling's own statements hinting at her Christian sensibility in the books.
