Drawing from diverse spiritual and scholarly sources, it is an open-minded guide to the rich layers of meaning and symbolism we encounter in all seven of the novels.The Seeker's Guide doesn't try to 'read' J.K. Rowling's mind about the symbolism she may or may not have meant to put in the books, but to read the symbols as they appear, with some of the layers of meaning that they have traditionally held. Drawing from anthropology, theology, psychology and the history of the human experience of the Sacred, The Seeker's Guide to Harry Potter offers fans of any or no spiritual faith a deeper sense of magic and meaning in the novels and in their own lives.

    Loved this book!!!!

    This book was very insightful and opened my eyes to many things I had missed in the Harry Potter series! Only problem was that the print was small and could not be enlarged (yes, I do know how to do that on my Nook!), but that didn't keep me from reading every word of it. Obviously an intelligent author and an engaging writer. Highly recommend!

    eBook TEXT SIZE changing doesn't work

    I am going to buy the hard copy book since the Text sizing on the Nook doesn't work at all and the default text is very, very small. This book looks very good and I'm not going to rate it on the technical formatting problem. The chapter titles look very interesting and the book is based on this author, teaching a college course in Scotland. I'll return with a genuine review once I purchase the hard copy but would suggest NOT purchasing this particular book as a Nook unless you want to read a font size of about 6 or 7 instead of 11 or 12, not to mention you will never be able to change to an Extra Large with this faulty IT issue.
