The Spirituality of JRR Tolkien - Kevin O'Brien's Recorded Courses at Homeschool Connections


The Spirituality of JRR Tolkien

JRR Tolkien was able to create the most popular work of literature of the 20th century, The Lord of the Rings, out of the depth of his spiritual insight and because of his profound Catholic faith.  This course will examine Tolkien’s spirituality by reading his letters, by studying his life story, and by examining the works he created.  We will thereby learn, through Tolkien’s example, how faith and personal sanctity can and should play itself out in the life and works of every Christian.  This course will be more than an examination of JRR Tolkien; it will also be a glimpse into the power of God’s grace working through an artist and his art.
