Fantasy and Your Family [Paperback]
by Richard Abanes

From the book jacket:

Should Christians be reading fantasy literature? Is there really a difference between the magic and wizards in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series? What about book burning, or banning books? Isn't it better that children read Harry Potter instead of watching television? If you are not satisfied with quick easy answers to these questions, this book will help.

Richard Abanes is a cult/occult expert. He is also a huge fan of fantasy and science fiction literature. The Harry Potter series gave him a unique chance to combine his two passions, and this book is a fascinating look at both the fantasy genre and the two series which best exemplify it. It is also an exposition of the themes, characters and spirituality in The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. Abanes casts an educated eye on the genre of fantasy, looking at both its positive and negative aspects. He even uses child development information to examine how fantasy affects children at various stages of development. He offers parents the information necessary to make wise decisions about what their children are reading.

"A thoroughly researched and well-balanced resource that should be on the shelf of every parent, educator and youth worker." —Bill Myers, best-selling children’s author "McGee and Me!", "Journeys to Fayrah", "Forbidden Doors"

"I believe Richard has helped us move toward recovering the great tradition of children’s literature from the wasteland of modern commercialism, adult manipulation, and a spiritually impoverished culture." —Gene Veith, Ph.D., English professor Concordia University
