More for Narnia review:
Harry Potter is cheerfully humanist: no god or devil, just human beings (and magical creatures) with good and bad intentions.
His Dark Materials is aggressively humanist: the church exists, God does not, and human beings are responsible for all good and evil and the church is evil. (Controlling maniuplative, etc.)
Dark Rising is also humanist, but the good and bad magic seem grounded in the Judeo-Christian ethic (the grail, for example, has great power).
Narnia is thoroughly "Christian."
