In a book that has already deslighted thousands of Harry Potter fans and spiritual seekers alike, author Connie Neal embraks on an illuminating exploration of J.K. Rowling's created world of magic and mystery. She demonstrates how the stories of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Snape and Dumbledore can be seen as glimmers of the Christian gospel. This second edition, including interpretation of all seven books in the series, The Gospel According to Harry Potter is a fascinating reflection on our time's most cherished literary series.
In this inspiring consideration of the spiritual themes in the popular Harry Potter series, well-known Christian author and Harry Potter fan Connie Neal explores the world of magic and mystery created by J. K. Rowling alongside the stories and grand themes of the Bible. Contrary to those who reject the series as a threat to the Christian faith, Neal demonstrates how the lessons in Harry Potter not only echo many of the stories in the Bible but reinforce the central messages of Christianity. This revised and expanded edition explores all seven installments in the Harry Potter series.

Connie Neal is the author of over thirty books and Bible projects, most recently What's the Christian to Do with Harry Potter?. She toured as a speaker with Women of Faith in 1998 and now crosses the country conducting workshops on Harry Potter's influence in the Christian community. Along with her husband, Connie is raising their three children to remain culturally literate without compromising their love of God.
"Christians who love the Potter series will find this book invaluable. Connie Neal masterfully lays numerous Scriptures side by side with passages in Rowling's books that parallel and echo them. Her analyses of the texts are insightful and illuminating, and the section on Book Seven is especially rich and rewarding. Every Christian reader of the Potter series should read this book." -James W. Thomas, Professor of English, Pepperdine University
