Wish I could find that newspaper photo we scanned of a Bible professor we know standing in line with his daughter dressed up like wizards for a Harry Potter book release party.
J.K. Rowling said:
Yes, I am [a Christian]… Every time I’ve been asked if I believe in God, I’ve said yes, because I do, but no one ever really has gone any more deeply into it than that, and I have to say that does suit me, because if I talk too freely about that I think the intelligent reader, whether 10 or 60, will be able to guess what’s coming in the books.
We just finished book 7 and pretty much loved it. It’s been said that last weekend may have been the single biggest mass reading in the history of the world. Gazillions of books sold in a matter of hours, etc., etc.
It’s easy to find stuff online where people see Christian messages in the HP series, like here (of course, there’s lots online saying Harry Potter’s the devil, too!). It will be a while before we decide what we think it’s all supposed to mean, but in the meantime Harry Potter freaks can geek-out here. Or, if you’ve read it, tell us what you think!
