Sierra writes: Those intrigued by the philosophy behind LOTR (in terms of core themes of the ancient wisdom tradition, including the development of higher consciousness, death and rebirth and the triumph of good over evil) may be interested in this new book by author Robert Ellwood. (Interesting last name for someone writing about Elijah’s character, don’t you think?). If you’re in the Chicago area, Mr. Ellwood will be appearing at the famous Transitions Bookplace here next Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 5:30 pm, speaking on “Frodo’s Quest”. [More]
