Publisher's Summary

What is "the one great thing to love on earth", according to J. R. R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings? The Eucharist! Tolkien made sure his one great love was woven throughout his books. It's easy to find if you know where to look. In Smith's new book, find Tolkien's hidden Eucharist!

The Lord of the Rings can't be fully understood without understanding its hidden Eucharistic significance. What's more, perhaps: J. R. R. Tolkien can't be fully understood apart from his Catholic identity and his devotion to the Eucharist. Are you ready to read Lord of the Rings like you never have before?

Wow!

I found this book on accident, looking for other things.

It wasn't what I wanted. . . until I saw the title and realized that between my Catholic faith and inordinate love for J.R.R Tolkien, this was perfect.

The book far exceeded my hopes, so I bought 4 copies to give a gifts.

Amazing! You shall not pass!

This is an utterly new insight into Tolkien's writings. This book will give you a completely new reason to love Lord of the Rings. If you're a fan of Tolkien, you NEED to read this. The narrator, Kevin O'Brien, did a fantastic job, as well - he's perfect for this book. The insights in this book will completely blow your mind and unveil the inner-workings of Middle Earth. You'll be asking yourself, why haven't I ever heard these insights before? The comparisons between the history of Gondor and the history of Israel, Isildur and David, Sauron and Goliath - all epic. "You shall not pass" ... on this book!
