The Children of Hurin: Tolkien’s Christian Roots

Asia Times Online’s "Spengler’s" review of J.R.R. Tolkien’s "newest" (actually oldest, and edited by his son Christopher) The Children of Hurin is a reminder of the deep roots of Tolkien’s Christianity from a source outside of the normal track of Christian writers, and we commend it to our readers.

We should note, however, that this story in itself and this part of Tolkien’s mythology is covered in other parts of his work, including The Silmarillion.
