Tree of Tales: Tolkien, Literature, and Theology

Couverture
Trevor A. Hart, Ivan Khovacs
Baylor University Press, 2007 - 132 pages

This work examines the theological relationship between creation and creativity in the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. It does so by bringing together a synthesis of various disciplines and perspectives to the creativity of J.R.R. Tolkien. Hart and Khovacs provide a fresh reading of these important themes in Tolkien, and the result captures the multi-faceted nature of Tolkien's own vivid theology and literary imagination.
