The Messiah Comes to Middle-Earth - Images of Christ's Threefold Office in The Lord of the Rings

by Philip Ryken - PCA

J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings has generated much discussion about the relationship between Christianity and literature. It is well known that Tolkien disliked allegory. Yet he acknowledged that his work is imbued with Christian symbolism and meaning.

Based on the inaugural Hansen Lectureship series delivered at the Marion E. Wade Center by Philip Ryken, this volume mines the riches of Tolkien’s theological imagination. In the characters of Gandalf, Frodo, and Aragorn, Ryken hears echoes of the threefold office of Christ—his prophetic, priestly, and royal roles. Guided by Ryken, readers will discover that they can learn much about the one who is the true prophet, priest, and king through Tolkien's imaginative storytelling.

Philip Ryken (DPhil, Oxford) is the eighth president of Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. He formerly served as the senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.
