Jesus Potter Harry Christ: Derek Murphy
This book is available as a free PDF so just click on the link. We’ve choosen this book because it links mythology and fiction, speaking heavily on ancient mystery cults, astronomy, etc. The thesis is that Harry Potter is a christ figure despite JK Rowling’s desire because that’s what our society is at the moment — heavily savior-based. Speaks about how history/human myth cycles all form into jesus and the probability that he (jesus) is just another mythological figure.
