Narnia, Middle-Earth and The Kingdom of God


Product Description
Product Details


"Mark Worthing compellingly lays down the origins of modern fantasy, the steps from classical mythology and medieval allegory, through to the brothers Grimm, MacDonald, Tolkien and Rowling. As an author whose own works have been banned from certain school libraries, it is heartening to have the Christian origins of the fantasy genre so patiently unfolded. Thorough and thoroughly enjoyable." - D.M. Cornish (author of Monster Blood Tattoo trilogy). "Mark Worthing's knowledge of his subject is formidable, yet made accessible to even non-specialists in prose that is both clear and compelling. Rich in historical and biographical detail, Narnia, Middle-Earth and the Kingdom of God traces the Christian heritage of modern fantasy, persuasively illustrating the continued importance of the genre in helping to wake us from our peculiar forms of modern disenchantment. Worthing's is a welcome voice for the revitalisation of the Christian imagination, a project for which we are better resourced than many suppose." - Dr James Cooper, Senior Lecturer in Humanities and Creative Writing, Tabor College, Adelaide
