Great article

Theonering.net pointed me to a CBN.com article on the Christian perspective of Tolkien and his works. It says a lot, and Tolkien's ideas as presented in the article go a long way in explaining what I was after with Lex Rex. Read on...

A beautiful article. :) That's why Harry Potter isn't even worthy of comparison to Tolkien's works: there's a difference between books to "escape" from the world, and books to delve deep into it.

Not to downplay tLotR in anyway, but the Silmarillion especially delves deepest, I think. Although the Lays of Beleriand are AWESOME! (Steve, you have to read the lay of Lethian! you'll love it!)

Then it shall be so. I'm back into The Worm Oroborus at the moment. Afterwards, I'll go for the Lays.
