Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Baird Hardy
God and Harry Potter at Yale: Teaching Faith and Fantasy Fiction in an Ivy League Classroom (Unlocking Press 2010) is a delightful read, covering the creation and implementation of the first semester of her beloved course of Harry Potter and Christian thought, as well as visiting the major themes covered in the class. Rev. Tumminio's writing is engaging and approachable, making the reader often wish for the opportunity to be in an actual class with her.
