The gift of Iluvatar: Tolkien's theological vision
Casey, Damien 2004. The gift of Iluvatar: Tolkien's theological vision. Australian Ejournal of Theology. February, pp. 1 - 15.
This article explores some of the principal theological themes underlying Tolkien's fiction through reference to Tolkien's own comments and observations expressed in his letters, lectures and other creative works. It is my contention in this article that Tolkien's work is explicitly theological and makes an important contribution to contemporary Christian theological discussion, especially with regards to the vocation of Christians and their role in the salvation of the world.
