Christians Finally Getting it About Harry Potter

The article is only moderately maddening in its continuation of the lie (started by Lifesite in the service of its own stupid anti-Potter crusade) that Pope Benedict was some sort of anti-Potterite and some of the theological exegeses of HP are a bit of a stretch, I think. But basically, it’s now bleedin’ obvious that Rowling is drawing very heavily on the Christian tradition for her work. She’s not, one hastens to add, an American Evangelical or a Catholic, so no: she’s not going make everybody happy. But the books, nonetheless, belong quite squarely in the middle of the broad stream of Christian literature.

And they will still be being read a hundred years from now.
