Synopsis: Harry Potter has captivated the imagination of millions of children. And Harry Potter has caused controversy in churches and schools. What's a parent to do with the magical, mystical world of Harry and his friends? Gina Burkart chose to read the books with her own children. As they read together, she discovered many parallels between Christian faith and the themes of these books. Indeed, the escapades of Harry Potter sparked significant conversation between Burkart and her kids. In this helpful, entertaining guide, Burkart shows how Harry Potter fits into the tradition of fairy tale writing and how this type of literature aids in building a moral framework. She highlights specific situations and emotions from Harry's world that children face in their own life, such as fear, anger, bullies, diversity and the choice of good over evil. Instead of magic words or easy answers, Burkart offers solid, practical advice for helping parents and children navigate Harry Potter's world--and our own--together.

From the Author: IVP: In light of the controversy [surrounding the magic and violence in the Potter books], what are we to do with Harry?

Gina Burkart: We should read the Harry Potter stories with our children and discuss the rich issues that are presented. We should have fun with the story yet take the opportunity to connect it with everyday issues. Additionally, the battle of good versus evil that runs through the stories gives us a chance to discuss and apply our faith to some of the toughest issues in life. Because magic doesn't solve Harry's problems--the death of his parents, dealing with Snape, the bullying of Malfoy, etc.--children can learn to problem-solve Harry's struggles, and in turn problem-solve how to deal with their own issues. They learn that magic isn't real. Magic doesn't solve problems. This is a great opportunity to teach children to turn to a mighty and powerful God for support and guidance. God prevails where magic fails. IVP: Where do you find the strongest Christian parallel in Harry Potter?

Burkart: The strongest Christian parallel is that the love of Harry's mother leaves a mark on Harry that saves him from the evil Lord Voldemort. This reminds us of the mark of love that Christ left on us when he died for our sins and gave us the gift of eternal life.
