Do you seek to escape reality? To what end? Br. Francis of the Child Jesus, author of the new book “The Theological Landscape of Middle Earth”, has joined Trending with Timmerie to discuss the world of fantasy, J. R. R. Tolkien, and theology. They discussed the role of beauty, truth, virtue and myth in fantasy, why the Lord of The Rings is such a beloved story and how various characters from Gandalf to Sam play a Christ-like role.
