Non-Fiction Biography

J.R.R. Tolkien transformed his love for arcane linguistic studies into a fantastic world of Middle Earth, a world of filled with characters that readers the world over have loved and learned from for generations.

Devin Brown focuses on the story behind how Tolkien became one of the best-known writers in the history of literature, a tale as fascinating and as inspiring as any of the fictional ones he would go on to write. Weaving in the major aspects of the authorís life, career, and faith, Brown shares how Tolkienís beloved works came to be written.

With a third follow-up film and the bookís release the same month, thereís a large interest in the faith values for these works. This book addresses that deep hunger to know what fuels the world and worldview of The Hobbitís celebrated author, Tolkien.
