Harry Potter and the Bible: The Menace Behind the Magick by Richard Abanes

Harry Potter books are flying off the shelves of secular bookstores at an astonishing rate. Some evangelicals are buying them, too. Should Christian parents be exposing their children to these wizard-in-training manuals? Is there a sinister side to Harry Potter and his pals that is spiritually dangerous for young readers?Characterized by astronomical publishing statistics, controversy and opposing voices, the Potter phenomenon begs the title question of this book: Is it a harmless fantasy or is it a dangerous fascination? The book responds by cataloguing the various forms of occultism included in the first four books, offering scriptural responses and discussing the psychological and spiritual dangers associated with the Rowling volumes.

The latter half of the book includes:
-- an overview of good and evil from the Garden of Eden through cultures ancient and modern
-- a mini-encyclopedia of various occult practices, with special attention to those glamorized in the Potter books
-- an explanation of the difference between the Potter books and those written by C.S. Lewis or Tolkein, for instance.

Finally, the book explains why God has forbidden involvement in the occult and takes a hard look at Americas present propensities for the dark side -- a fact the interest in and content of the Potter books all too obviously corroborate.

Aside from my atrocious handwriting, it is 12 full-size pages filled with my scribbled, jotted, many underlined thoughts, reactions and questions, as well as quotes, semi-quotes, references to quotes and page numbers for still more quotes. It's not pretty. But it WAS necessary.
