Description
 
Just as the visionary material in Scripture gives us a chance to reframe our lives in the light of God’s purposes, so Tolkien carefully creates a secondary world to help us recovery our bearings in the primary world. Just as it makes sense to put a Psalm to contemporary music, or to teach a carefully outlined Sunday school lesson on the book of Romans, so it is appropriate to use our creativity to capture the imaginative beauty of the Bible’s apocalyptic texts. Seen in this light, Tolkien’s work is not an escape from reality but an escape to reality.

As the course title suggests these lectures concern both the Bible and its Apocalyptic Revelation, and the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Looking through Tolkien’s writing, and looking with Tolkien, we can see that he has glimpsed some valuable truth and has presented it in a fascinating way. Our aim in this course is to look at the light, especially as it is refracted through Tolkien.

Please note: This course does not include lecture workbooks.
