But several questions must be asked: Does Harry Potter offer any positive moral lessons for today's children? Is Harry's magick truly fictional or is it based on actual occultism? How do the Harry Potter tales compare to other fantasy books like those written by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien? In this user-friendly and helpful volume, Richard Abanes answers these questions, provides a hard look at society's not-so-subtle drift toward paganism and examines the reasons why God says "no" to occultism.
