Fantasy can help children see with spiritual eyes, says Richard Abanes, bestselling author of Harry Potter and the Bible. It confirms the reality of good and evil. But is every fantasy story appropriate for everyone?
In this evenhanded exploration of the books of J.K. Rowling, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as the films based on their writings, Abanes - a fantasy fan himself - answers key questions:
· What is inspiring and healthy in these works? What is misleading and harmful?
· Do I need to be concerned about occult influence from fantasy?
· How do movies and merchandising impact kids' minds?
Pro-literature and pro-fun, Harry Potter, Narnia, and the Lord of the Rings helps you evaluate fantasy's strengths and dangers from a balanced Christian perspective.
