Harry Potter vs. Christianity?

Harry Potter vs. Christianity?

Click this link to hear the full two hour broadcast!

The limitations of Christian prudence in regard to the arts is an ever present discussion in Christian circles (Augustine had much to say about the dangers of the theatre). It has been so since the Hebrew era, through the Church Fathers, the Renaissance and the Reformation. Still, as a body of believers we have our own internal critique of faith, of culture, and of the relation between the faith and the culture. Is the culture dictating the content of the faith? Or is our faith transforming the culture? Or have we missed them both and we are just riding the waves of history wherever they might blow? That’s all too heavy a discussion for tonight so we’re just going to talk about Harry Potter from a Christian perspective… both for it… and against it.

Christopher Neiswonger and Lindsay Brooks (and callers with varying levels of affirmation or consternation).
