I read one that seemed determined to do nothing but cite every quote in LotR that supported the idea of a divine power behind all the events. Elrond himself states that he think Frodo was meant to have the Ring—and not by Sauron. Keep that in mind as you read! However, he may simply have wanted readers to explore the questions more deeply without his guiding them all the way to certain conclusions.

I liked that he explained the questions before he answered them, so that the book really is an introduction to philosophy of sorts and not only about Tolkien. I liked reading it more as a reminder of why Tolkien is so awesome. It was sort of like chatting with a good friend about your favorite author and realizing you both agree on certain key aspects of a work of literature.

    Peter Kreeft

    The renowned literary biographer has studied Tolkien for decades and has written many books on his fellow Englishman. Pearce will be the first to tell you that to understand Tolkien, you have to understand his Catholicism. The descriptions below are either from the publisher or from Amazon. Thus, Kreeft takes the reader on a voyage of discovery into the philosophical bones of Middle earth.

    Since many of the great questions of philosophy are included in the theme outline, this book can also be read as an engaging introduction to philosophy. For each of the philosophical topics in The Lord of the Rings , Kreeft presents tools by which they can be understood. He may be the most popular writer of our age, but Tolkien is often misunderstood. This major new study of his life, his character and his work reveals the facts and confronts the myths. It explores the background to the man and the culture in which he wrote.

    Tolkien: Man and Myth observes the relationships that the master writer had with his closest literary colleagues.

    The Catholic Imagination of JRR Tolkien

    It reveals his unique relationship with C. Lewis, the writer of the Narnia books, and the roots of their estrangement.

    In this original book about a leading literary life, Joseph Pearce enters the world created by Tolkien in the seven books published during his lifetime. Myth, to him, was not a leap from reality but a leap into reality. It is the Christian journey of self-sacrifice out of love for others, and abandonment to providence and grace.

    Tolkien well, offering a rare insight into the man behind the myth.
