Finding Unauthorized Faith in Harry Potter by Nicole L. Rivera

Finding Unauthorized Faith in Harry PotterBook Description:
The Harry Potter story as a guide to life's deepest truths, offering inspiration about faith, friendship, courage, loyalty, love, and other wisdom of the Bible. Advice on how to to live like Christ and Harry Potter heroes.

My Thoughts:
I was completely intrigued when I saw this book and have to say that it didn't disappoint in the least!  Nicole Rivera's book takes the Harry Potter books and links them to Bible Passages in a devotional book.  The devotional is easy to read and follow.  There are links between scripture and what she is telling.  While this is a devotional, it is not written from a 'high and mighty' standpoint but from a humble one and I completely and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I adore the Harry Potter books and while there was a lot of controversy and such, I had never read any of the books about it one way or the other.  I had seen the good qualities of the characters but I had never actually linked it to the Bible.  That being said, now that I've read this book, I can completely agree with the author (Nicole Rivera) in her comparisons.  I love the passages of the stories (yes she uses all the HP books) and then follows it up with scriptures that make you say 'oh, yeah'!  I think everyone needs to read this devotional because 1. you will enjoy it and 2. it will make you take a look at yourself and the world around you.
Absolutely a 5/5.  This is staying on my bookshelf!
Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
