"Now comes a fine appreciation of Rowling's achievement from a first rate writer, believer, and (to top it off) Chestertonian Catholic. Thanks, Nancy Brown, for doing justice to the greatest Christian fantasy epic of our generation." -- Mark P. Shea, Senior Content Editor, CatholicExchange.com
"At last, the voice of Christian common sense is heard! Nancy Brown's careful study will provide reliable guidance to Catholic parents who seek to practice, and impart to their children, an attitude to contemporary fiction that is both open and discerning. I warmly recommend this book." -- Father Pierre Ingram, CC, S.T.L.
"Nancy Carpentier Brown has done us all, especially parents, a great service. [The Mystery of Harry Potter] is an informative and original assessment of the Harry Potter books, examining why they are not only great literature, but great Christian literature as well. Harry Potter should be on every Catholic family's bookshelf, right alongside Nancy's book." --Sean P. Dailey, editor-in-chief of Gilbert Magazine.
"At last a book by a devout Catholic mom about Harry Potter! Nancy Brown puts to rest the objections raised by Catholics who have not read Joanne Rowling's wonderful books and raises concerns for prudent Christian parents to consider. This is a must for every Catholic parish library and RCIA teacher!" --John Granger, author, Finding God in Harry Potter
"The Mystery of Harry Potter is a great resource to enlighten Catholic parents and educators that JK Rowling is on the side of the angels." --Robert Trexler, Editor, CSL: The Bulletin of the New York C.S. Lewis Society
