I love Interlibrary Loan. It’s such a fine way to read books that my own Library doesn’t have, including obscure, scarce, or expensive titles and ones that for other reasons I’m just not in a position to buy. Today I’m returning an Inter-Library Loan that I enjoyed very much – The Lord of the Hallows by Denise Roper (Denver: Outskirts Press 2009.) It’s a compact and insightful summation of the Christian symbolism in J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. That the series is loaded with Christian symbolism was blazingly obvious by the climax of the seventh book . Roper places the Harry Potter books in the tradition of Christian fantastic novels that includes Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia. Recommended!
