I'm a few days late in discovering it, but, especially as I prepare to speak on the Christian Emphases in Harry Potter tomorrow afternoon, I was delighted to discover the following item on John Granger's "Hogwarts Professor" blog (check it out):
Of course, I share the good "professor's" pleasure at seeing this public confirmation of what he and I and a number of others have been saying for some time now. And I likewise relish the irony that it was MTV that broke the news. One wonders where the pundits are who have been toting the line that Rowling's work never had anything to do with Christianity, or that it was downright anti-Christian. Public repentance, retractions and apologies ought to be forthcoming from all those who have publicly borne false witness against their neighbor, J.K. Rowling.
