This week we are joined by 'Adore' missionary and host of the YouTube Channel 'Drinks with Dreads' Chris Donatto. Chris and Clint are both huge fans of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and their group the Inklings. Join us as we give our thoughts on the new Biopic "Tolkien" and lessons we can learn from Tolkien's life. We discuss our need for fraternity, allegory and symbolism in literature, the power of fantasy and myth, and how artistic creation can affect us spiritually. It's "hauntingly hopeful."

What do our favorite stories, heroes, and villains tell us about morality? Anyone who has studied literature knows that a good story has many different conflicts overlapping and intertwining. Is it possible that these levels of conflicts are a representation of a deeper conflict in our own reality?
