Christian book monitors have found a literary savior in G.P. Taylor and his young-adult novel "Shadowmancer," which they call a Christian or faith-based alternative to J.K. Rowling's magic-filled Harry Potter books ("Hey, J.K., Meet G.P.," Oct. 17).
Taylor himself, as a Christian, is concerned about the "dark powers" in Rowling's series.
Faith in something greater than ourselves doesn't have to involve a deity from a major religion or one created by a Christian author. What's magic if not faith in a higher power?
