Harry Potter has now been around for twenty years, and while some Christians condemn the books as evil, or even satanic, others praise them for their good Christian values.  This class will look at the issues involved in this controversy, exploring the ways people come to these two different conclusions.  Theology, history, even an exploration of how language works are all topics that will come into play.  The class will require reading (or having read) all seven Harry Potter books, as well as other materials.
