Review

WEB LINKThe Hidden Key to Harry Potter

by John Granger

I like this book. A lot.

John Granger boldly contends what millions of fans have already realized: that the Harry Potter books are so popular because they're really, really good books. They're written in the tradition and with the same sensibilities as the books of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Instead of trying to placate those of the Christian community who feel that the Potter books are evil and anti-Christian, John Granger turns the tables on them. These books, he proclaims, are not only Christian in subtle ways, they are also Christian in intentional, overt ways. Then he proceeds to prove it.

Now don't make the mistake of thinking that this book is only for Christians who need a little ammunition for their internal battles. You don't need to be a Christian at all to understand and appreciate the careful analysis of each Harry Potter volume and the carefully-researched predictions about future books. This is a book that every Harry Potter fan will want to own. That's especially true, however, if you've found yourself having to defend Harry Potter against those who would turn it over to the Devil.
