  • 1. BY - JK ROWLING
  • 2.   Joanne "Jo" Rowling (born 31 July 1965[4]), pen name J. K. Rowling,[5] is a British novelist, best known as the author of the Harry Potter fantasy series. The Potter books have gained worldwide attention, won multiple awards, and sold more than 400 million copies.[6] They have become the bestselling book series in history,[7] Born in Yate, Gloucestershire, Rowling was working as a researcher and bilingual secretary for Amnesty International when she conceived the idea for theHarry Potter series on a delayed train from Manchester to London in 1990.[11] Rowling finished the first novel in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (1997). Rowling subsequently published 6 sequels—the last, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2007)
  • 3. Daniel Jacob Radcliffe Born - 23 July 1989 (age 24) West London, England
  • 4.  Daniel Jacob Radcliffe (born 23 July 1989) is an English actor. He rose to prominence as the title character in the Harry Potter film series. He made his acting debut at 10 years of age in BBC One's 1999 television movie David Copperfield, followed by his film debut in 2001's The Tailor of Panama. At age 11, he was cast as Harry Potter in the first Harry Potter film, and starred in the series for 10 years until the release of the eighth and final film in 2011.
  • 5.  It clearly distinguishes good and evil. One of the downsides of suburban America is that the lines between good and evil blur easily. In urban contexts, darkness is much more difficult to hide. The suburban distractions of materialism and entertainment speak much more loudly than the vices more common in urban contexts simply because evil is not as visibly present. (Kathy Keller does a great job of exploring why darkness is easier to discern in the city in her article, ―Why you should raise your kids in the city.‖)  It inspires wonder. Let‘s face it, flying on broomsticks playing quid ditch outside a magical castle is pretty awe-inspiring to modern kids who ride around in mini-vans and play soccer all day. I don‘t want my children limited to the confines of suburban cookie-cutter worlds – I want them to forge creativity, to imagine possibilities beyond their wildest hopes and dreams, to believe in something bigger than what they can actually see. This is how we grow better societies, and in the end, how we also find God.
  • 6.   It values relationships. In our modern, technological world, honest and committed relationships are struggling. Our environment shouts for instant everything, and provides increasingly fewer models of genuine trust, endurance and perseverance. Harry, Hermione, and Ron model an enduring, committed friendship – one in which they are each themselves and appreciated for who they are, not who they wish each other to be. When Harry tells Ron and Hermione information that has the potential to threaten their very lives, they look at each other and gulp, but barely hesitate to declare their allegiance to him. It teaches symbolism. Perhaps the biggest critique the series has received is from those with concerns about the focus on witches and wizards. Like many great stories, the witches and wizards are merely symbols to help children see truth (Narnia and Lord of the Rings also have strong magical themes and haven‘t received near the kind of criticism on this front as Harry Potter). While witches and wizards can have other connotations, they don‘t inherently represent the same thing. Throughout history, symbols have been a powerful influence in the life of faith, and it‘s helpful for children to learn that sometimes there are multiple meanings and layers to what they actually see – people and objects included.
  • 7.  It demonstrates courage. When Voldemort returned to power, my children cowered and cuddled close, concern burrowed in their little brows. My son‘s had nightmares about death eaters and sometimes sleeps with the hall light on, ‗just in case‘. But when they play, they are never Voldemort or death eaters. They are, of course, Harry, Ron, Ginny, Hermione, or Neville. These are characters who, though terribly under-qualified and ill-equipped, demonstrate courage beyond their years to fight evil because 1) it needs to be fought and 2) they are friends who have each others‘ backs. Seeing this courage-in-action is formative to my own children‘s future characters. I don‘t know what they‘ll face in their lifetimes, but I want them to have a frame of reference rooted in courage to do the right thing, even in the face of great cost to themselves.
