Several weeks back, I posted a short thing on Conglomerate and Blogcritics about my search for Harry Potter & The Half-blood Prince. After the book was released, people started commenting on the Blogcritics post, and the debate is still raging: 388 comments and counting!
That debate — plus a provocative post from Russell — got my juices flowing, and after completing the book, I engaged my oldest daughter in an extended conversation about Snape’s true nature. Last week, she attended Especially For Youth at BYU, where she shared some of our insights with one of her dance partners. She said that he listened attentively then remarked, “Wow! Do you study the scriptures like that?”
