In the spirit of continuing full and fun explorations of Christian themes in important stories for today, here is The Theology of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.  My dad read these to me when I was a kid.  My appreciation and love for the story has grown ever since.  Hope you enjoy!

There is also a longer 2 hour lecture version that I broke up into four pdf files: part 1; part 2; part 3; part 4.
