Potter book out to break publishing records


KIND OF MAGIC: JK Rowling, pictured here with Order of the Phoenix, will give a reading of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at Edinburgh Castle. Picture: Phil Wilkinson

GET ready for Harry Potter and the Mother of All Marketing Machines. With just two months to go before publication, a PR operation is swinging into life that will ensure that even if you don’t buy JK Rowling’s latest novel it will be virtually impossible not to hear about it.

And if claims by the bookseller Waterstone’s are to be believed, there is hardly any need to convince adults or children to go out and buy a copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The chain is confidently predicting that the book will smash publishing records when it comes out on July 16.

Waterstone’s says Harry Potter pre-orders are the highest for any book on record, and even the adult version of the novel - which has a different cover and fewer illustrations - is on course to be a best-selling title of the year. ...

I would like to find someone with a voice like that of Alexander Scourby and the funding to commission him to record an English translation of the Septuagint. That is needed sorely. The various readers of other audio Bibles, irrespective of the translation, simply can't hold a candle to Scourby. Scourby used only 47 CDs for the KJV translation of the Masoretic Text, so to hire a dramatic actor for 50 hours of reading at, say, $50 an hour (let's go for perfection) would cost only $2500, plus studio expense (which could be supplied gratis by a Christian radio station). Sponsors, anyone?

You are so right, Russell. We need to be saturated with the word of God. And it should be a translation of the Textus Receptus like the KJV instead of the Textus Rejectus like the NIV (Never Inspired Version).

Agreed, Arch. Meanwhile, one of the best measures to take is to become extremely familiar with the Scripture by reading it over and over, or by listening to someone read it. The MP3 players are marvelous for this. The more familiar we become with the entire body of Scripture, the better we are able to spot inconsistencies caused by mistranslation and misinterpretation, because we know that there are no actual conflicts. Once you have a good understanding of the whole, it is easy to spot things which aren't right.

Russell its all about watering down our protestant heritage, after antichrist had tried to kill all bible believing christians after they seen that this didnt work they started watering the bible down by their translations and now as you say people will run to the left behind rubbish but try and get a good reformed book and you will have a hard job.

My concern is that "Left Behind" is prominently displayed (together with much other rubbish of the same ilk) in "Christian book stores". Not too many years in the past, there were "Bible stores" but few, if any, "Christian book stores" -- reflecting the fact that THE Christian book is the Bible; but a "Bible store" nowadays is rare. And while "Christian book stores" do carry a few Bibles, only by mail-ordering can you access a decent selection. Better than ninety percent of the books in a typical Christian book store are worthless drivel.

No one seems to have thought about which literary series -- the "Harry Potter" series of Rowling, or the "Left Behind" series of LaHaye and Jenkins (both being entirely fictional) -- poses the greater threat of leavening the Christian Faith with false doctrines and myth? Which is the more likely vehicle for the introduction of subtle error and non-Biblical concepts? My point is that, while attention has been focused upon "Harry Potter", "Left Behind" has been accepted by Christians without close inspection. And subtle error is a grave danger.
