The Pyromaniac (Phil Johnson, elder at Grace Community Church) has a pretty fair take on the Harry Potter series. Though he has not read any of the books, he is evenhanded and reasonable here. Stay out of the comments section of his blog. At times the pooling of ignorance there is enough to drown in. I myself am in the middle of writing an article on the Harry Potter series and plan on submitting it to Baptist Press when finished. It will show up here first. Give me another week, and I'll have finished the most recent book and the article will follow.
