Tolkien: A Celebration begins and ends with two writers ‹ George Sayer and Walter Hooper ‹ who knew J.R.R. Tolkien well, offering a rare insight into the man behind the myth. Between these delightful memoirs are twelve essays that explore the threads of inspiration and purpose in his major works ‹ The Lord of the Rings, the Silmarillion, and The Hobbit. The works are examined theologically, philosophically, culturally, ecologically, mystically, and historically, as the various contributors seek to understand the profundity of Tolkien¹s achievement. Above all, these collected essays reveal a writer of inspired creativity and profound spiritual depth.About the Author:
