Readers have repeatedly called The Lord of the Rings the most important book of our age--absorbing all 1500 of its pages with an almost fanatical interest and seeing the Peter Jackson movies in unprecedented numbers. Readers from ages 8 to 80 keep turning to Tolkien because here, in this magical kingdom, they are immersed in depth after depth of significance and meaning--perceiving the Hope that can be found amidst despair, the Charity that overcomes vengeance, and the Faith that springs from the strange power of weakness. The Gospel According to Tolkien examines biblical and Christian themes that are found in the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Follow Ralph Wood as he takes us through the theological depths of Tolkien's literary legacy.
Ralph C. Wood is University Professor of Theology and Literature of Baylor University.
