"The only cure for sagging or fainting faith is Communion." As many know, J.R.R. Tolkien—the English writer, poet, philologist and academic best known for being the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings—was Catholic. After the untimely deaths of both his parents, Tolkien was raised under the guardianship of a priest. Later in life, Tolkien's friendship with C.S. Lewis would be instrumental in Lewis' conversion from atheism to Christianity. The collection of The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien was originally published in 1981 by his son, Christopher, and biographer, Humphrey Carpenter. It contains 354 letters written between 1914 and 1973, the year of J.R.R. Tolkien's death. This episode features part of a letter written by Tolkien to his second son, Michael, in 1963, when Tolkien was 71 years old. It is a remarkable letter of fatherly encouragement, and one that reads as though it could have been written today.

Looking to recover lost love? Discover the connections between the Harry Potter stories and The Christmas Pig. Designed for younger readers, The Christmas Pig features a young boy going on a perilous quest to thwart a materialist villain, The Loser, and reclaim his lost, beloved best friend, Dur Pig (DP). In this first episode of the new year, Emily and Katy explore the similarities between The Christmas Pig and the Harry Potter novels. Common motifs include the value of courage and loyalty, the challenge in dealing with bullies and tyrants, anti-modernism and anti-materialism, the heroism of the small and marginalized, coping with death and our own mortality, and the transformative power of love. Emily highlights the Christian themes appearing in both, particularly the magic of the Christmas season, comparing Hogwarts Christmases with the miraculous possibilities of Christmas Eve in traditional lore. She also explains the religious significance of some of the names in the story. Katy points out how, in both stories, “Things” gain sentience and agency through their proximity to people and absorption of human emotion. The Alivening of objects in The Christmas Pig is perhaps akin to spell-casting in the wizarding world. We also explore the ways this novel, like the Potter series, fits Tolkien's definition of a fairy story, especially the experience of a perilous realm, the way magic is taken seriously, and the tale's eucatastrophic ending, with the finding of that which has been lost.
In episode 273, we explore the Middle-earth Creation myth, "Ainulindalë", otherwise known as the Music of the Ainur. “Ainulindalë” is one of the most fascinating legends that Tolkien wrote, and it introduces key characters and themes into the legendarium. Furthermore, it sets the stage for everything that comes after, from the First Age to the Third (and beyond)! If this is your first time reading it, you're in for a big treat!

IN THIS REPEAT: Learn about Holly Ordway's 2021 book Tolkien's Modern Reading with co-host Lisa Coutras. - - - - C.S. Lewis had many friends...the most famous was J.R.R. Tolkien, whom he worked with for many years at Oxford University. Just as with Lewis, there are many misconceptions about Tolkien. One is that he "read very little modern fiction, and took no serious notice of it." Dr. Holly Ordway has studied the issue for many years and discovered Tolkien was much more aware of modern culture and the inspiration for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings was not only medieval. She joined William O'Flaherty for a podcast interview to share her insightful findings. Dr. Lisa Coutras also joined the show to help with co-hosting. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Purchase Tolkien's Modern Reading via Amazon Purchase Tolkien's Modern Reading via the Publisher (and see Holly's videos) LISTEN to Apologetics and the Christian Imagination INTERVIEW LISTEN to Not God's Type INTERVIEW Hear Holly as a Guest on Some of the Essay Chats Series Learn More About Lisa Coutras Purchase Lisa's book Tolkien's Theology of Beauty Listen to All About Jack on iTunes Purchase C.S.

“I describe it as a fantasy novel about the real world we live in, or a realistic novel about the fantasy world we live in.” Anthem is Noah Hawley's terrific, page-turning sixth novel, and his first after his Edgar Award-winning bestseller, Before The Fall—it's also our January 2022 Barnes & Noble Book Club pick. Noah joins us on the show for a wide-ranging, spoiler-free conversation about breaking the fourth wall, the death of satire, how we can use fiction to help us make sense of a nonsensical world (even when our brains are working overtime “to maintain the illusion we believe in.”), writing for the screen vs. writing for the page, and more, including the ways Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five and J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings inspired Anthem. Featured books: Anthem by Noah Hawley, Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison, The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, White Noise by Don DeLillo, and One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Dr. Devin Brown is back with another book about C.S. Lewis's (more famous) friend, J.R.R. Tolkien. This one is a brief biography simply called Tolkien. At the time I'm releasing this podcast, the final part of the movie version of The Hobbit will be out in a few weeks.

Can you go home again? Does "home" change or do you change? Tolkien meditates on these questions beautifully in this chapter, which feels like a throwback to early Fellowship. Geopolitics and class critiques come roaring back as Gandalf and our hobbits do the fascinating, boots-on-the-ground work of building and maintaining alliances. Also, Bill the Pony's fate is revealed at long last. Feedback & Theories: firstname.lastname@example.org Instagram: @secondbreakfastpod YouTube: https://bit.ly/2OT6RP3

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I'm joined by the former editor of the evangelical flagship Christianity Today, Mark Galli, to talk about his conversion to the Catholic Church. Mark spent 10 years as a Protestant pastor, 20 years editing the world's largest evangelical publication, and has recently come into full communion with the Catholic Church. We unpack his journey, the reasons behind his decision, and some of the questions, challenges, and problems he faced in his Protestant faith which ultimately led him into Catholicism. It was an absolute privilege to talk to Mark and I hope you enjoy our conversation!For more from Mark visit his website.For more, visit The Cordial Catholic. Send your feedback to email@example.com.

Hey there, fellow travelers!By far, the biggest thing to happen to Tolkiendom in 2021 was The Nature of Middle-earth, the latest collection of previously unpublished Tolkien writings. When we interviewed Carl Hostetter, the book's editor, back in August, we recorded a special bonus episode for our patrons, in which we got Carl's takes on topics including Peter Jackson's Middle-earth films, LOTR on Prime, Tolkien's Catholic Faith and the role it plays in Middle-earth, and controversy in the world of Tolkien Studies.Carl has made an incredible contribution to Tolkien's legacy with The Nature of Middle-earth as well as his other work in Tolkien studies and lore, and we should all be open to what he has to say on these important topics!

Cale is joined by Fr. Michael Ward, Senior Research Fellow at Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford, and Professor of Apologetics at Houston Baptist University. They discuss Fr. Michael's role in the recent film The Most Reluctant Convert which tells the story of C.S. Lewis. They also discuss Lewis's relationship with J.R.R. Tolkien and the role of reason and imagination in evangelizing the culture today. Plus, Fr. Michael shares what he believes the true climax ofThe Lord of the Ringsis – the answer may surprise you! Cale also looks at documents from the Dead Sea Scrolls and consiers: why did John the Baptist doubt that Jesus was the Messiah?

Ellen Kushner joins us to discuss Ursula K. Le Guin's "A Wizard of Earthsea”, Choose Your Own Adventure books, the explosion of Tolkien's popularity, the feminist revision of Earthsea, wizarding schools, designing magic system limitations, Larry Niven's science brain, the teenage search for identity, wizards of color, normalizing protagonists belonging to marginalized populations, the Jewish inspirations on Riverside, and much more!
John Heitzenrater joins the podcast to begin with Fr. Andrew a chapter-by-chapter walk-through of Tolkien's seminal work, the novel that introduced most of us to Middle-earth – The Hobbit. In “An Unexpected Party,” we are introduced to Bag End, to Hobbits, to Bilbo Baggins, to Gandalf, to Dwarves, to the Quest for Erebor and… to Sauron(?!). Lay aside your walking-sticks and put on your swords, everyone, because it's time to go There and Back Again.
What do The Lord of the Rings, Winnie the Pooh, and the Christmas Story share in their narrative framework? Eucatastrophe. A term coined by J.R.R. Tolkien in his article, "On Fairy-Stories," eucatastrophe finds its place as a literary trope throughout literary history. But how does it fit with the Christmas story? And how can we see the coming of the Christ child as the most remarkable example of eucatastrophe in history? Buckle up for a new episode of Classical Et Cetera as the Goon Squad (Dan Sheffler, Jon Christianson, Mitchell Holley) dives into the Great Catastrophe of the Christmas Story and unpacks Tolkien's Eucatastrophe. Merry Christmas from Classical Et Cetera!
Listen to Cam's silly little Christmas fable, The Christmas Donkey: https://cameronfucile.bandcamp.com/track/the-christmas-donkey Tolkien's 3rd LOTR epilogue evolves some metaphors and further develops his "cyclical" view of time and history. We see a wedding and a funeral. We see new mentors crowned and old ones cast aside. The "Old Man" trope returns and Aragorn's arc ends with the bittersweet resolution of Tolkien's fire / knowledge imagery. A magical illness hangs over the proceedings and an air of cobweb-laced decay looms large as we approach the Shire.

Today I have the absolute pleasure of sharing my conversation with the wonderful Beth Wayland. Beth has been in relational ministry for a very long time first with Campus Crusade for Christ, which is now called CRU and for the last five years she has been working with a ministry she founded called WITH where she ministers to those working in churches, para church ministries and more. Beth is a woman who is deeply passionate about caring for people's hearts where they are, and especially pressing into places where the pain is intense, relationships may be struggling, and people may not totally know where they belong in the Christian space. From that same space, Beth is both honest (and hilarious) in sharing insights from her journey as a single woman in her 40's, as well as walking out her experience of finding a place in the Church again after some deep hurt. Beth is the perfect person to speak into the darkest week of the year, but also herald the process of the Light coming. Jesus came to practice the ministry of presence in each of our unique seasons, and we need to look at how Jesus was with people in tumultuous seasons, including His own birth in Bethlehem. When we look. When we practice healthy curiosity, the results can be truly breathtaking, and life changing. She also provides some incredible questions for us to ponder where we are in our thought process, our pain, and even some practical things that she's worked through in her relationship with the Lord and with others that I really believe can minister to many in this season. Friend, I hope as you walk into your Christmas weekend, that you take a deep breath. Wherever you are, you are not alone. Whether for the first time, or for the 50th time, I hope that you are able to take a moment to consider the incredible audacity of God becoming limited and small and vulnerable, the God man. It just overwhelms me with awe and gratitude when I think about Christ coming to be with us down here… meeting messy people where they are, getting to the core of people's broken hearts… what a wild and loving God who would do such a thing. And that is why we celebrate Christmas. He came down to become like you, to show you compassion and empathy, to show you how to love others, no matter how different you are. And then, he paid the ultimate price for you. He took on sin and death, and won. By His death that He chose, His burial that entombed the curse that had held the Earth in its grip for so long, and then He was resurrected, totally 100% alive, and through His sacrifice, all of it, we too now get to be 100% alive. The book of Hebrews tells us that Jesus is our great High Priest who can sympathize with our weaknesses, our struggles and our sufferings. He knows that life is hard. Jesus said “in this world you will have trouble, but take heart for He has overcome the world.” The Light of the world came to overpower the world of darkness. And He has, friend. Take heart. And Merry Christmas. You matter, and your story matters.

Não são poucas as mitologias que contam a história de um deus que precisou passar por grandes provações até alcançar seu lugar no panteão das grandes divindades que povoam a nossa imaginação e que estão no cerne das religiões mais antigas. Um desses mitos, no entanto, parece ter alcançado uma outra dimensão, ao narrar a história de um Deus - com D maiúsculo - que mais do que encarar uma dificuldade usando seus super poderes, escolheu se misturar às suas criaturas e vir ao mundo como uma crinça. E quando eu falo em mito, ouvinte, entenda que eu não estou dizendo que essa história é uma mentira. Ninguém menos do que J. R. R. Tolkien defendia que o Cristianismo é, por excelência, o mito que virou verdade. Acontece que até mesmo para quem não acredita no Cristo, o Natal - festa que celebra o seu nascimento - é uma realidade. E as consequências da crença nesse menino Deus, meu caro ouvinte, são ainda mais difíceis de serem ignoradas. Nas palavras do historiador britânico Tom Holland, nós “nadamos em águas cristãs”. O último podcast Ideias de 2021 vai tentar convencer ou lembrar o ouvinte do porquê o Natal ainda importa. Desta conversa com a jornalista Maria Clara Vieira, participam Carlos Calda, professor do programa de pós-graduação em Ciências da Religião da PUC Minas e Diego Klautau, Doutor em Ciências da Religião, professor do Centro Universitário FEI e do Colégio Catamarã. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tenha acesso a conteúdos exclusivos!

Like Plato, C.S. Lewis believed that the human soul was made up of three parts — the head (the rational, reason-driven part of you), the belly (your appetites and base instincts), and the chest (the seat of virtue-seeking sentiments and well-tuned emotions). In order for your head to make your decisions, particularly the decision to live a virtuous life, rather than your decisions being driven by your belly, the head needs the aid of the chest, of right feeling.A few months ago, we had Michael Ward on the show to talk about why C.S. Lewis felt that modern life was making “men without chests.” Today, I talk to a guest who can shed light on what Lewis thought was needed to build that chest back up. His name is Louis Markos and he's a professor of English, as well as the lecturer of the Great Courses course: The Life and Writings of C.S. Lewis. At the start of our conversation, Lou gives us some background on Lewis' life, including his conversion to Christianity, and how the nature of that conversion influenced his thinking on how to pursue virtue more broadly. We then talk about Lewis' philosophical argument for there being a universal moral order, and why the chest is so vital for staying grounded in it. We spend the rest of our discussion unpacking the three ways Lewis believed the chest could be “educated”: reading stories and myths, rejecting “chronological snobbery” to learn from the past, and developing friendships that inspire excellence.Resources Related to the PodcastLouis' Great Courses course: The Life and Writings of C.S.
