Where:
Many Christians today have responded to not only J. K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” book series but also C. S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” by demonizing them because of the pagan imagery and mythology they borrowed and placed within their works.

Within our discussion of this subject we will look into the revelation in Deathly Hallows chapter 16, “Godric’s Hollow” and Rowling’s reference to the basis of life after death and her direct quotes from the Christian Bible – we will discuss these verses in relation to Harry’s struggle to understand the life after death question. We will draw upon our discussion to gain an understanding of the Christian faith of J. K. Rowling and its effect upon the reader in a secular, post-modern world.
