Moving Theology of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I have always enjoyed reading fiction, especially fiction with the setting and theme similar to the epic fiction novel The Lord of the Rings.  Well, I re-read the epic Hobbitt adventures for the third time this year and fell deeper in love with it.  Upon finishing my wife recommended I read the Harry Potter series.  I thought, “Hmmm….I did like the movies.  I wonder if I’d enjoy the books?  Might as well give it a shot and see what happens.”  Well, it’s been a month since I began the Potter series and after the first 4 books I am thoroughly enjoying the Potter series.  Why?  I think it’s due to the same reason I enjoy Lord of the Rings, I get a taste of eternity on its pages, and see Christ everywhere inside them.  Some of you may think it strange to hear me say such a thing, but let assure I’m not alone in my opinion.  I saw this video a while ago and wanted to post it here for your enjoyment to show that I’m not the only one thinking deeply about Christo-centered theology and Harry Potter.  Enjoy 🙂
