Book - 2002

The Hidden Key to Harry Potter is the first book to take Harry Potter seriously as literature. Low read critics have panned the bestselling novels as the literary equivalent of fast food and as a gateway to the occult. But no one has explained the worldwide popularity of Ms. Rowling's fiction or read it as one would read Tolkien, Hemingway, or Shakespeare. The Hidden Key takes the high road to understanding Harry Potter's success through an exploration of the series' structure, themes, and symbolism. The astonishing conclusion of this investigation is that Ms. Rowling, demonized by some Christian critics because of its magical setting of her books, is ironically writing the most charming and challenging Christian fiction for children since Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia.
