    1. A fine collection of short essays by eminent Tolkien scholars. It does not contain much that would be unknown to a Tolkien fan, but is a good read nevertheless. Comparisons between Tolkien and other Christian writers are particularly interesting, and they may be a good starting point, helping the reader to discover classic literature with similar values as Tolkien's.

    2. Good biographyThis is a good biography of Tolkien. It is well researched, and the information is organized in a good fashion.
