A book of fantasy?

Dear Editor: There is a book that has been in the news a lot lately and is being sold in most local bookstores. This bestseller is adored by both adults and children. But this book is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is full of wizardry, evil demons and preposterous magic that are causing millions to doubt science and abandon reason. Many even believe that the gods and spirits in this work of fiction actually talk to them and grant their requests. Some gullible readers go so far as to believe that this fanciful book should be the basis for our American laws and government.Yes, the Bible is a dangerous book. Read it with caution.
