"The Road Goes Ever On .." Christian Symbolism in the Lord of the Rings"

"J.R.R Tolkien's masterpeice of fantasy fiction, The Lord of the Rings, is beloved around the world as a timeless classic. Legions of fans have read and re-read it's pages joining Frodo, Sam and the fellowship on the journey to Mount Doom so many times that we feel like Middle Earth is our home away from home. What many have not seen however, is how Tolkien masterfully wove into his epic tale a layer of Catholicism that when realized by the reader, brings the experience of the Lord of the Rings to an entirely new level. 

Join Anthony Gentile for a brand new, first time on Long Island presentation of his talk, "The Road Goes Ever ON...Christian Symbolism in the Lord of the Rings". Building on his last presentation of the Christian Symbolism in the Hobbit, Anthony, will bring us deeper into Tolkien's world of Middle Earth, revealing the main Christian themes and figures in this story while taking us on the familiar journey to Mount Doom and back to the Shire. 

Are there Christ Figures? If so, How many? What about the sword reforged? 
Lembas? The Return of the King? Houses of Healing? The Dead Men of Dunharrow? Denethor and Saruman's fall from wisdom? Sauron's malice? The Orcs? and of course...The Precious.....

What do they mean and how is our faith hidden in this amazing story?

Find out April 20th at Faith on Tap!"
