Ep. 1 – Scholars thought he would be forgotten in less than a decade. His fellow professors looked down on him because he became a Christian and wrote children’s novels. But the legacy of C.S. Lewis lives on. Dr. Alistair McGrath explains why.

Ep. 2 – He created an entire world filled with fantastic creatures and great adventure. But what exactly was J.R.R. Tolkien trying to teach us in his epic Middle Earth books filled with Hobbits, Elves, and Dwarfs?

Ep. 3 – J.R.R. Tolkien’s works aren’t just old books for obscure book lovers. He’s had a tremendous influence on the broader American mind too. In today’s program, we’ll learn how Christ inspired his stories.

Ep. 4 – The images and characters in J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic tales reflect his experience in the great war, but there’s more to it. Join Charles Morris to think more about the heroes from Tolkien’s stories and how they point us to the True Hero, Jesus Christ.
