Rowling is the new Lewis

Very interesting article over at Andy Crouch’s blog (it’s the second post down) about how Potter is the new Narnia. Very intriguing, particularly if you consider some of what Tolkien writes about eucatastrophe and fairy story, and what Lewis and Tolkien said about Christianity as a “true myth.”

Crouch has written a little fantasy story to express his POV, and there’s a little extra beneath it that explains why he wrote as he did.

For your enjoyment.
