Reading LOTR Script

We downloaded the script for Lord of The Rings and were reading through it for home schooling this week. Lots of fun for the kids and good reading exercise.
We are homeschooling our kids in a way that uses unschooling and guided resources at the same time.
I think there are a lot of similarities between “unschooling” and alt. worship – both are involved in creating environments conducive to learning/worship and honoring the moment.

    Cool deal on the LOTR readings/studies. A book you might enjoy is *J. R. R. Tolkien’s Sanctifying Myth: Understanding Middle-Earth* by Bradley Birzer. Birzer (a Catholic theologian) covers major theological themes from LOTR, using Tolkien’s own writings and correspondence. Covers ecology, good/evil, ennoblement/corruption, creation, sub-creation, God’s design for humanity, etc. It’s at an intermediate to semi-scholarly level, but still accessible – and one of the few books I’ve found that focuses on Tolkien’s own theology. Also check out *Defending Middle-Earth: Tolkien, Myth and Modernity* by Patrick Curry, which focuses on similar themes, with more emphasis on ecology.
    Bonus material: lots of insights into the ‘Christian humanist’ movement, which assumes that since we are created in God’s image, we have a divine design and destiny to live out in community, as opposed to the various logical conclusions of secular humanism, based on evolution. Also, insights into why many literary critics who are philosophical modernists or postmodernists seem to hate Tolkien, while (generally) the medievalists and tribalists and post-communists really dig on him.
