Gary Copping5 Stars Out Of 5February 2, 2010Gary CoppingA very good spiritual theology book. One is challenged by the LOTR characters to emulate their virtues. It puts spiritual matters in easy to understand examples.
Susan Simon1 Stars Out Of 5June 5, 2009Susan SimonOrdinary virtues is indeed what you get not Biblical. Things like loyalty etc. are explored but I was hoping for more direct Bible references or overall concepts and was disappointed. Many books have goodness, loyalty, honesty etc. as underlying themes. I was hoping to finally answer my questions about the direct corelation that LOTR and the Bible might have. Did not find it here.
Lynnmarie Couvillon4 Stars Out Of 5May 14, 2009Lynnmarie CouvillonI already knew that The Lord of the Rings had many Christian connotations, but I never thought of them in the light that Mark Eddy Smith tells. It was totally awesome. I believe Mr. Smith not only understands The Lord of the Rings, but also the Lord Jesus Christ very well. A must read for all who appreciate Tolkien.
Mary Mccurdy5 Stars Out Of 5March 27, 2009Mary MccurdyNeat book to help see the underlying themes in The Lord of the Rings. Very helpful if you are doing a unit study on the book.
