The Ring of Truth
Xulon Press, 2004 - 304 pages
Tolkien wrote that his fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings "is about God, and his sole right to divine honour. The Eldar and the Númenoreans believed in The One, the true God, and held worship of any other person an abomination." Consequently, Tolkien's novel contains Christian truth and wisdom that have much to say about our beliefs, our world, our spirituality, and ourselves. Divine providence, ethical absolutes, beauty, temptation, mercy, joy, courage, and self-sacrifice are but a few of the twenty-four prominent themes from Middle-earth that resonate with the ring of truth.
