Another Secret Revealed: From tonight's NBC telecast of their interview with Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling. A young person asks about her religious belief. For those who are still reading the final book, it does become clear that the faith, her belief, is wholeheartedly Christian. NOTE: You can read the entire interview at Shell Cottage or at MSNBC. Please know that both sites are filled with HP Spoilers.
Young voice: Harry's also referred to as the chosen one. So are there religious--
J.K. Rowling: Well, there-- there clearly is a religious-- undertone. And-- it's always been difficult to talk about that because until we reached Book Seven, views of what happens after death and so on, it would give away a lot of what was coming. So … yes, my belief and my struggling with religious belief and so on I think is quite apparent in this book.
Meredith Vieira: And what is the struggle?
J.K. Rowling: Well my struggle really is to keep believing.
Meredith Vieira: To keep believing?
J.K. Rowling: Yes.
