Anticipating the great amount of interest in Tolkien’s writings due in part to the major theatrical movie release on his classic The Lord of the Rings, this highly readable collection of writings celebrates J.R.R.Tolkien’s great literary legacy and the spiritual values that undergird his imaginary Middle-earth.
Tolkien: A Celebration includes personal recollections by George Sayer and Walter Hooper, and many fascinating pieces by authors such as James Schall, S.J., Stratford Caldecott and Stephen Lawhead, exploring the threads of inspiration and purpose in his major works. These dip into subjects such as The Sense of Time in Lord of the Rings, Tolkien: Master of Middle-earth, and Tolkien, Lewis and Christian Myth.
Fourteen writers contributed to this insightful work on Tolkien, and it will be much-treasured by those who regard him as a literary hero.
“Tolkien needs to be celebrated, because he and his writings were celebrations of the human spirit, imagination and spiritual genius. Joseph Pearce has given us a fine compilation of wit and wisdom about the great man, one that should be read by everyone concerned with the permanent things."Michael Coren, Author, Tolkien: The Man Who Created Middle-Earth
