PART 2: The turn of the 20th century saw many inventions that made life better, but it also brought about mechanized warfare that killed more soldiers than ever before. Find out how this reshaped the way C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien saw the world when you listen.

PART 3: During the darkest days of the early 20th century, Lewis and Tolkien chose to write about the power of friendship. Why? Find out when you listen.

PART 4: What does it take to be a hero? You might first think about super powers or a willingness to lay it all on the line, but what about a heart of obedience? Lewis and Tolkien both reflected this in the journeys of their heroic characters.
