Summary, etc.:
In this accessible and engaging book, Ralph Wood shows us that J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece is a deeply Christian work because it does not blink back the horrors of these terrible times but confronts them with startling honesty. Listnerers keep turning to this work because here they are immersed in significance and meaning, perceiving the Hope than can be found amidst despair; the Charity that overcomes veangance; and the Faith that springs from the strange power of weakness. The Gospel According to Tolkien will be loved by both longtime Tolkien fans and those recently drawn to his books through the popular feature films.
