Discover Timeless Truths among the Hobbits
It's been named the most popular book of the twentieth century, but J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" is more than just a great story of adventure and triumph.
In this book of reflections on Tolkien's trilogy, you'll discover deep connections between Earth and Middle-earth-and inspirational truths pointing to God's work in the world. You'll gain insights into the powerful faith that fueled Tolkien's imagination.
Let yourself be newly inspired by a tale of hope, redemption, and faith against all odds. And feel your own faith grow as you contemplate your role in another story-the greatest story of all.
"God is the lord, of angels, and of men-and of elves."--J. R. R. Tolkien

On the negative side, the book was a bit less than what I had hoped for. I was expecting a book set up with multiple deep essays on the various subjects, but it not quite as in-depth as I would have liked. It is a good surface analysis, but it fails to go into the depths that the more intense fan would prefer.
This is an excellent informative book for parents who are concerened about exposing their children to something that they might be worried about. It is in this regard that the book could do its greatest good because many Christians could end up tossing something out in the name of "evil" that truly can be seen as a testimony of God's glory. Honestly, it a challenge for me to withhold the tears when I am reading Tolkien's work. When I read his words, I see the infinite beauty of God's creation coming forth through the hands of a man who truly realized who his God was.
Bruner's book is a delightful way to uncover many nuggets of God's truth, threaded throughout The Lord of the Rings, that a reader might miss on a cursory reading of the trilogy.
