In response to the heated controversy surrounding the Harry Potter phenomenon, Christian Publications is excited to present the book “Harry Potter and the Bible: The Menace behind the Magick.” (The word Â“magicÂ” refers to stage illusions by sleight-of-hand, where-as Â“magickÂ” refers to occult practices.) In this timely book, Richard Abanes — nationally recognized cult researcher — skillfully answers the questions parents and others are asking about the mega best-selling series by J.K. Rowling. From the Publisher In Part One: “The World of Harry Potter, Abanes provides a brief but enlightening summary of each of the first four books. He then exposes the various forms of occultism, some subtle, some more glaring, that are woven into the Potter books. Abanes offers appropriate scriptural responses and discusses numerous psychological and spiritual dangers associated with the Rowling volumes. In Part Two: Out of the Darkness, he presents a critical overview of occultism in America, the place of fantasy in Christian literature and the controversy surrounding the use of Harry Potter in public schools. The book concludes with an insightful explanation of why occultism is unquestionably condemned in Scripture.
