Description


Had there been no Great War, there would have been no Hobbit, no Lord of the Rings, no Narnia--perhaps even no conversion to Christianity by C.S. Lewis.Discover the untold story of how the First World War shaped the lives, faith, and writings of J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis in A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War by Joseph Loconte. This thought-provoking book delves into the profound impact of World War I on J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, illuminating how the horrors of the Western Front shaped their faith and the timeless tales of Middle-earth and Narnia.Witness how the Great War not only tested their faith but also ignited their remarkable Christian imaginations. Unlike many of their contemporaries who lost faith amidst the chaos, Tolkien and Lewis used their experiences to infuse their epic stories with themes of guilt and grace, sorrow and consolation. Their works offered a beacon of hope in a world scarred by doubt and disillusionment.In A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War you will:
