I have to admit that, for years, I did not want to read these and did not want my children reading them. I didn't like the terms "witch" and "wizard" because of the huge amount of occult (witchcraft) so obvious in France, where I lived for 5 years. I still do not like those terms.
We finally relented and allowed our children to read the books.
I have only read the 7th (but plan to read the first 6 this summer).
I want to think about all this before I write more. I have ordered a book that was highly recommended called "Looking for God in Harry Potter" . It's due to arrive in a few days. After I read through it then I might have something more intelligible to say.
Meanwhile, I enjoyed the book. It was very well written and it's clear to see some very Christian themes coming through. The difference between good and evil is quite clear. Love wins.
