Pub. Date: 01/01/2003
Publisher: Augsburg Fortress, Publishers
Christians have always engaged the world around them and reflected upon the connections between faith and culture. Faith Journey through Fantasy Lands engages popular culture in the hugely successful stories of Harry Potter, Star Wars, and The Lord of the Rings. Author Dalton guides the reader through these contemporary fantasy stories, illuminating them with light from the Christian faith journey. The book opens doors to faith-sharing, particularly with young people, while also taking on the issues within the stories that have led some Christians to reject them.
- Accessible to teenaged readers as well as parents, pastors, etc.
- Great for group or individual use; includes reflection questions
- Promotes healthy interaction between faith and culture, with emphasis on faith
- Takes on the challenge of the "difficult" aspects of the fantasy stories
