In honor of Tolkien’s death on this day in 1973, we are reposting this interview:
Pastor Uri Brito sat down in 2010 to talk with author, Mark Horne, to discuss the life of J.R.R. Tolkien and Pastor Horne’s biography on Tolkien.
“It was through The Hobbit and the three-volume The Lord of the Rings that Tolkien became a literary giant throughout the world.
