Tolkien and Christianity II – I recant.

August 24, 2001 at 12:01 am by Tehanu  - 

When I saw the apparently exhaustively-researched essay on Hollywoodjesus.com I thought ‘great, somebody’s done all the work for me.’ I wish I’d read through to Greg Wright’s concluding essay, because a number of emails have pointed out that it’s rubbish. If you want the real skinny on Tolkien’s faith and the way it’s mirrored in his work, somebody who’s done his homework a whole lot better is Joseph Pearce in his book “Tolkien, Man and Myth.” (It’s out of stock at Amazon and B&N, I notice.) Otherwise a cheaper option is to read Tehanu’s Notes numbers 6, 7 and 10 which might lead you to think (and read) in a number of different directions which go a lot closer to the truth than Mr. Wright did, methinks.
