Overview

A fascinating look at the fantasy and philosophy of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien. The two men were friends and fellow professors at Oxford, renowned Christian thinkers who both “found it necessary to create for the purposes of their fiction other worlds not utopias or dystopias, but different worlds.”

“The great importance of [Lewis and Tolkien] is that they have succeeded in restating certain traditional values in a way that they make an imaginative appeal to a very wide audience, young and old, traditionalist and non-traditionalist.”
—Richard Purtill, Author, J.R.R. Tolkien: Myth, Morality, and Religion
