J. R. R. Tolkien: The Mind Behind the Rings, you'll get a never-before-seen look at the man, the artist, and the believer behind some of the world's most beloved stories.

Join bestselling author Mark Horne as he explores lasting impact of the kind of creative freedom that can only come from faith and struggle.

Raised in South Africa and Great Britain, young Tolkien led a life filled with uncertainty, instability, and loss. As he grew older, however, the faith that his mother instilled in him continued as an intrinsic contribution to his creative imagination and his everyday life.

J. R. R. Tolkien explores:

  • The literary giant's childhood, coming-of-age stories, and the countless hurdles he faced
  • What inspired and influenced The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit
  • Tolkien's service in the war
  • The ways that Tolkien's faith influenced his work

Previously published as a volume in the Christian Encounters series, this renewed edition of J. R. R. Tolkien now includes updated information about TV series and films inspired by Tolkien's literary creations as well as a discussion guide designed to keep the conversation going.
