Redemption in the Lord of the Rings – Dr. David Russell Mosley
For Dr. David Russell Mosley, one of the authors that had the biggest impact on his journey to the Catholic faith was J.R.R. Tolkien. In Tolkien’s vision of Middle Earth, Dr. Mosley found a world of heroism and mystery, but he also found a deeply Christian understanding of sin and redemption. Dr. Mosley reflects on how Tolkien’s Catholic faith helped inform the way he wrote about morality and character development in his fiction.
