Publisher's Description

We must decide what to do with the time we are given.


The Lord of the Rings trilogy, consisting of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King, is a moral fantasy pitting good against evil in a world where Wizards are the stewards of mankind, Ents shepherd forests, Dwarves mine mountains, Elves preserve beauty, and Orcs, Trolls, and Uruk-hai serve a dark master. The three-part epic shows darkness battling light, evil struggling against good, pride fighting with humility, and despair wrestling with hope.

This study guide will help you discuss some of the deeper themes of the movie. What does this film say about the struggle for virtue, the temptations of power, the providence of God, and the ennobling power of story?
