Just to round things out, I have a nice paperback on my shelf called The Gospel According to Harry Potter: Spirituality in the Stories of the World's Most Famous Seeker, by Connie Neal. The back cover says Neal "persuasively demonstrates that Harry Potter need not be rejected as a threat to the Christian faith, as some have claimed." Neal asks, "Is our own faith so fragile that we dare not know what those of a different sect of Christianity or those of undisclosed religious persuasions, or those of different religious backgrounds are thinking?" She notes, "The kind of literary criticism being used by some Christians to discredit Harry Potter while touting Tolkein's and Lewis's fantasy writings is certainly not what Tolkein and Lewis taught their students."
