Fantasy Literature and the Christian

If you are a parent, you have probably had to consider, or will have to consider, whether your child should read Pilgrim’s Progress, the Chronicles of Narnia, the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter books, or for that matter any fantasy books. All of these are considered fantasy literature by the author.

If you are looking for a good, short discussion of fantasy literature, then the series of articles below will be very helpful. Kevin Bauder’s essays are each only two pages long, which makes for quick reading, but they address excellent questions, give good insights, and provide help for assessing and addressing questions pertaining to what your children (and you) should consider when you choose fantasy literature.

Read and grow!
