  • Book Binders – John Granger discusses Harry Potter and the Great Books. Fantastic article.
  • The Alchemist’s Tale – Literary alchemy is probably the most important (and under-appreciated) issue to understanding the Harry Potter series. John Granger gives us a great introduction in this Touchstone article.
  • Pro Harry Potter – Michael Spencer, the Internet Monk, writes a letter to the administration of the Chrsitian school where he’s employed, in favor of the novels.
  • The Good Spell of Harry Potter – Leif (Eric) Rigney of the BHT writes an excellent essay in defense of the books for children – even Christian ones.
  • Harry for Catholics? – Regina Doman tackles the issue.
  • Harry Potter is a Hobbit – Amy H. Sturgis, PhD. This is a pdf file.
  • Saints and Serpents – Echoes of an age-old war in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter, by Jonathan King.
  • Harry Potter and the Charmed Christians, Part I and Part II – LaShawn Barber defends Harry Potter from a Christian perspective.
