I very much enjoyed that the author had laid out both positive and negative views with relation to Christianity in three very popular and very powerful fantasy stories, but I must say that I did get rather impatient with his preachings on the subject of how we, as Christians, should respond to each section and the conflict it presented, and how the story could be used as a model to live a more Christian life. Bottom line: enjoyable but heavy on the preaching.
