Recently named the #1 piece of twentieth-century literature, The Lord of the Rings trilogy is more than a great story. It’s a much-needed reminder that, like J. R. R. Tolkien’s hobbits, Christians are all on an epic quest. In examining the Christian themes in the trilogy, authors Kurt Bruner and Jim Ware find that truth and fiction are not as far apart as they seem. Even though Tolkien never intended for these books to present the Gospel, when read in the light of the Scripture, they offer a rich tapestry of redemption, values, and faith against all odds.

    " Movie-a-thon was fun - book was helpful - but much more along the lines of recognizing themes in the movies. The book was good overall, but not fantastic. a good and worthwhile read. "

    " I really enjoyed the little nuggets of wisdom in this book! If you're a Tolkien fan, you'll enjoy how Kurt Bruner and Jim Ware have weaved in words from the Bible that relate to the characters and experiences found in The Lord of the Rings. It's a quick read and quite insightful, too! "
