October 26, 2015

Here is another lecture from Dr. Peter Kreeft, who is not only a scholar of C.S. Lewis, but also of J.R.R. Tolkien.  Here is an audio by Dr. Kreeft on 10 Uncommon Insights Into Evil from Lord of the Rings.  To give you an idea of his thoughts on this, here are the points he makes:

1. Evil is Real
2. Evil is Immortal
3. Evil is Obvious
4. Knowledge is Not Always Good
5. Evil Defeats Itself
6. Evil is Used for Good
7. The Weapon of Sacrifice
8. The Weapon of Humility
9. The Weapon of Friendship
10. The Weapon of Words

You can listen to the audio on the player below, if you wish. If you are interested further in this, Dr. Kreeft and others wrote a book on this: Celebrating Middle-earth: The Lord of the Rings as a Defense of Western Civilization.
