Some guys just know how to say it. Peter Kreeft, a professor of philosophy at Boston College and King’s College, is one of them.  I loved The Lord of the Rings, and here is a insight from Kreeft that I hope you will enjoy. The top link is to the audio, and I have included the time stamps for the different sections.

We had Christmas at my parent’s house today as they were at my brother’s in Alabama for the actual day. I have long wanted to read the Lord of the Rings trilogy and that is now a possibility. My brother and Dad went in together and got me the 50th Anniversary edition Lord of the Rings.

Wow! What an amazing book. I estimate it takes me a year or two to get through the 1100 plus pages of this monster.
