Following Gandalf : Epic Battles and Moral Victory in the Lord of the Rings [Paperback]
by Matthew T. Dickerson, J.R.R. Tolkien

Matthew Dickerson's Following Gandalf explores the importance of free will and moral choices in Tolkien's Middle-earth, where moral victory, rather than military success, is the real story. Although he explores specifically Christian themes throughout (including salvation, grace, and spiritual hope), Dickerson suggests in the end that Tolkien's epic both is and is not a Christian story.

Not only does Dickerson seriously engage the literary texts, he peppers his arguments with fascinating excerpts from Tolkien's letters, illuminating the author's own compositional and thematic intentions.

Brazos Press (October 2003). Trade paperback. 234 pages.
