Is Tolkien Useless?

This week’s post is actually a guest post at Transpositions, the student blog of St Andrews’ Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts (which has been added to the blogroll on the right).

I answer a statement made by one of the keynote speakers that fantasy literature is not of any use to living the Christian life.
