Following Gandalf offers fans of The Lord of the Rings a deeper understanding of the sharp contrast between Tolkien's Christian worldview and that of our current culture. Dickerson digs deep into why Tolkien's work is widely read and appreciated, and suggests that our lives are enriched by the wisdom and ethics of Gandalf, the hobbits, and their companions. Dickerson uses these characters to explore the wisdom of Middle-earth where moral and spiritual victory, rather than military success, is the real story.
