Past Watchful Dragons - The Book!

Post by dr.amy » Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:22 pm

Hi everyone! Remember Past Watchful Dragons, the event that included Glass Hammer's amazing concert (now available as "Live at Belmont" on DVD)? Now the conference part of that event is available as a book!

Past Watchful Dragons: Fantasy and Faith in the World of C.S. Lewis provides a broad sample of the research presented at the “Past Watchful Dragons: Fantasy and Faith in the World of C.S. Lewis” international conference held at Belmont University on November 3-5, 2005. The contributing scholars reflect a truly interdisciplinary discussion representing the fields of literature, theology, history, and popular culture. The assembled essays offer insights on the messages of C.S. Lewis’s fiction and nonfiction, the dramatic adaptations of his work, the influence of his faith, and his relevance to related fantasy literature and authors from J.R.R. Tolkien to J.K. Rowling. These diverse contributions combine to offer a better understanding and appreciation of the life and legacy of C.S. Lewis.

You can read the Table of Contents, complete with abstracts for each chapter, here. The book is also available at Amazon here.
"I look East, West, North, South, and I do not see Sauron, but I see that Saruman has many descendants. We Hobbits have against them no magic weapons. Yet, my gentlehobbits, I give you this toast: To the Hobbits. May they outlast the Sarumans and see spring again in the trees."
-J.R.R. Tolkien, from a 1958 speech
