J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter
Yes, I am, which seems to offend the religious right far worse than if I said I thought there was no God. Every time I've been asked if I believe in God, I've said yes, because I do, but no one ever really has gone any more deeply into it than that, and I have to say that does suit me, because if I talk too freely about that I think the intelligent reader, whether 10 or 60, will be able to guess what's coming in the books.
Having read the series a few years ago, I think that's probably accurate. If you're very knowledgeable about Christian theology, Christian scripture or Christian literature, it was pretty clear all along where Harry Potter would end up.
I'm still excited about the forthcoming two films, though.Are you excited about the new Harry Potter movies? Does it surprise you that J. K. Rowling is a Christian? What do you think about her comments on her faith?
