Books by Denise Roper

THE LORD OF THE HALLOWS examines the Christian themes present in J. K. Rowling’s HARRY POTTER, and compares Rowling’s series with THE LORD OF THE RINGS by J. R. R. Tolkien and THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA by C. S. Lewis. This book also gives a fascinating explanation of the sources of Harry Potter’s subtle religious symbolism, which includes a study of iconography derived from the Bible, the writings of the Early Church Fathers, Ancient and Medieval bestiaries, Christian artwork, and the Arthurian quest for the Hallows of the Holy Grail.
