Shock and Awe

Steve Baarendse muses on Harry Potter and its effects in his post, “The Muggle’s Protest“:

Christians must understand that divine worship depends on a functioning sense of awe in the worshiper. Our most tragic loss today may be the capacity to be enthralled with God alone and to find the “ordinary reality” of His creation wildly romantic. How sad if Christian readers of HP come to find that they once felt this thrilling wonder, before the dementors sucked the pleasant memory out of them.

About B Treece
loved by God before I ever loved Him, saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone by the authority of the Bible alone to the glory of God alone, made to enjoy Him forever, happily married with wonder-filled children.
