Despite a couple of mis-attributions in his text, Peter
Kreeft's "The Philosophy of Tolkien" is, to my mind, a great
overarching treatment of both Tolkien's and Lewis' philosophical
and religious underpinnings. Because it approaches the issues
from a high-level perspective (providing, along the way, a great
map of the primary and secondary issues associated with
classical philosophy, the questions posed and the answers
provided by Tolkien and Lewis), I've always found it
refreshing...and less likely to bog one down than some
treatments by other authors.
