Editorial Reviews

Review

"Michael Jahosky's simple yet profound thesis, that The Lord of the Rings is a parable rather than an allegory, allows him to open up the world of Tolkien's Middle-earth in such a way as to find the gospel lurking therein. Without putting words in Tolkien's mouth, he demonstrates that Tolkien is telling the same kind of story as the gospel with its promised return of the true king."

--Louis Markos, Professor in English and Scholar in Residence, Houston Baptist University, and author of On the Shoulders of Hobbits: The Road to Virtue with Tolkien and Lewis

"Jahosky's The Good News of the Return of the King is a smashing success! My heart was nourished and my imagination stirred as I read about the power of story and the coming of the king in Tolkien's Middle-earth. This is a book for lovers of Tolkien and lovers of King Jesus who want to understand how stories are a powerful apologetic for Christianity. I highly recommend this enjoyable, well-researched, and riveting book."

--Paul M. Gould, Associate Professor of Philosophy of Religion and Director of the MA Philosophy of Religion program, Palm Beach Atlantic University
