Since its publishing in 1954 and the release of the movies in 2001, The Lord of the Rings trilogy has become one of the best-selling books of all time and has been cemented as a corner stone of the fantasy genre. Its story is rich, adventurous, and extremely captivating. Come hear a unique and humorous talk about what the popular work means for the world today and specifically, what it means for theology.
