I'm probably biased in that I enjoy John Granger's analysis of the Potter books more than any other author's, and that's probably because this isn't the only one of his books that I've read, and that I've met the author, but who cares. Granger's work on Potter is pretty unrivaled (except by Nancy S. Villaluz, who lives up to her arrogant dust-jacket by writing an extremely good book - she can talk the talk and walk the walk). This specific book is a series of essays devoted to the events in the seventh Harry Potter books, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. At the moment and to my knowledge, it is the only book of its type. I was delighted to see his essays on analyzing the epilogue (the "All Was Well" ending) and his essay on Potter and Dante. Both of these essays were on his website, but there were also new essays on the meaning of the Hallows symbol, etc. This is probably one of his most well-edited books (his early books have some typos) besides "How Harry Cast His Spell" (another good book of his). Again, I highly recommend ordering this one.

For anyone who believes that Harry Potter is evil this book is an eye-opener. I find all of John Granger's books on Harry Potter and use them often to explain to people the Christian content of the books

I am only 8 pages in but this is an AMAZING book. Do not think it is an easy read though...the topics and diction are both very advanced. THis is an amazing book for those looking to design a HArry Potter curriculum for High School or College classes.

John Granger Wriites so well that one reads this book for its style as much as for the sometimes convoluted theories about Harry's adventures and their theological and philosophical meaning.It is a touching and meaningful book.

I have read John Granger for years since there are so few Christian Potter analysts. As is typical with Granger's self-published books (he owns Zossima Press), he tends to spend just a few weeks assembling his long, disjointed lectures into an "instant book" (as he informed us in an interview last fall). This inevitably causes a certain amount of repetitiveness, odd pleas for money/book-sales, grammar errors, overlong passages, and reader fatigue. Page 189 of my copy even has some peer editors suggestions accidentally left behind ("You used this line above elsewhere..." "...made no sense as used so I suggested cutting it.") Despite its length, I actually don't feel that this book is as complete or entertaining as the adventurous first installment of Nancy Solon Villaluz' new Harry Potter/J.K. Rowling study trilogy, "Does Harry Potter Tickle Sleeping Dragons?" (Which I thoroughly enjoyed and believe will appeal to a much broader audience than Granger's book's style.) However, that is not to say that there isn't any information that makes one's effort in this book worthwhile. I suggest buying both Granger and Villaluz' books if you're the PHD type. If you're not the PHD type, then you might not enjoy being lectured by The Deathly Hallows Lectures.
