Which book is "this book", guest? C. S. Lewis wrote several dozen.
Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.

A few small Christian schools have banned it because it mentions magic in a positive sense.

Not that I'm aware of, and yes, it's a Christian book.

Another of Lewis' books that has been banned by over-zealous Christians is Screwtape Letters. Some uninformed people actually thought it was a demonic book teaching witchcraft or some such thing.
There's a thread about it somewhere around here.

Oh, the ignorance of people. :brood:

Oops, sorry. I'll keep my opinions to myself.

Yes, us self-righteous types can get a bit high on the hog with our over-zealous attitudes.
How would telling people to be nice to one another get a man crucified? What government would execute Mister Rogers or Captain Kangaroo?
