The Battle for Middle-earth: Tolkien's Divine Design in ""The Lord of the Rings""

Fleming Rutledge, Author Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company $20 (373p) ISBN 978-0-8028-2497-4
Commentaries on The Lord of the Rings trilogy have been a cottage industry recently, as the film installments attract new readers to J.R.R. Tolkien's modern classic. In The Battle for Middle-Earth: Tolkien's Divine Design in The Lord of the Rings, preacher Fleming Rutledge offers a commentary that ""is about God first of all""; the analysis is a ""theological narrative"" that follows the dramatic trajectory of the trilogy itself. Rutledge adds much to the theological understanding of the LOTR, in prose that is accessible and crisp.
