Item description for A Light from the Shadows by Sarah Bowen...
Overview Ancient legends crossing paths with the current events of life. A heroic quest shaped by both the epic battles of a vast war and the choices and character of individuals, from every language, tribe, people, nation, gender, and occupation. The interplay of truth, goodness, beauty, evil, weakness, and horror, and the mystery of mortality. The heartbreaking joy and uplifting poignancy of true romance. High drama and haunting music. All of these elements, individually traceable and yet inseparably connected, inhabit J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. This book transports the reader to that fantastic land in the ultimate quest: discovering how all of these elements radiate, like a light from the shadows, a brilliant and illuminating display of the glory of God in The Lord of the Rings.
