       "In this insightful and playful analysis, Dr. Smith uncovers some of the secrets of visiting imaginary places. He is a trustworthy guide, telling us not what we should see but what he has seen and encouraging us to look for ourselves. He does this with a maturity of judgment, a wide-background, and a sophisticated theological perspective rarely found in such commentaries. He makes you want to read the stories all over again."

I had long been a fan of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien when I was approved to teach a university course entitled "The Life, Religion, and Fiction of C.S. Lewis." When I began reading J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, I could not help but make comparisons. This very short book is meant to be a think-piece for the readers of these three fantasy authors. I also compare their general themes to biblical motifs.
