Harry News

Finally, I've managed to wrestle our copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows away from Snuffles.

In other Harry news, check out Claw of the Conciliator, who has a review and a list of links and info including some to debates about the Potter novels.

Also, the blog As in the Days of Noah has given us due warning that those who find Christian parallels in Harry Potter are going to Hell. Is it okay if I still find parallels in The Epic of Gilgamesh?

By contrast, the blog ephesians 4:14 has a largely negative but genuinely thoughtful discussion.

On the other hand, The Wittenburg Door Magazine has a parody of the whole Harry hysteria. It turns out that J. K. Rowling's name, with enough tweaking, equals 666!

For an excellent discussion see the post "Potter 'According to the Scriptures'?" at The Old in the New.

John C. Wright is wild about Harry. He gives a brief but sound defense of the books, and some spoilers.

All in all, I think Harry Potter's enemies have some serious backpedaling to do, and a few apologies to make.
