"'The fictional worlds of Chesterton and Tolkien are not only theological but also deeply Augustinian: they show us universes in which creatures exchange gifts with one another and with God. So argues Alison Milbank, with verve and brilliance, in this finely conceived and beautifully written book.' --Kevin Hart, The University of Virginia
'A fascinating discussion of the moral obligations implicit in Tolkien's world... a stimulating read.' --The Tablet
