Born in South Africa and growing up in Great Britain, J.R.R. Tolkien, or Ronald as he was known, led a young life filled with uncertainty and instability. His father died when he was three years old and his mother shortly before reaching adolescence. Yet he excelled in academics and went on to become one of the most beloved writers of the 20th century, considered by many as the "father of modern fantasy literature." This biography in the Christian Encounters Series by Mark Horne gives a succinct yet detailed account of his life, and the influence of his faith on his accomplishments.
