I thought the general "Christian" view of fantasy, what with its wizards and magic and demons and lack of Jesus, is disapproval. But there I was in a Christian book store and they had Tolkien all over the place. They were particularly big on The Hobbit, both in book and video, but they also had other titles, and posters, etc.
What gives? I understand that Narnia is approved because Aslan = Jesus what with the execution and the resurrection and the creation of the world and the judging of the dead and all, but why does Middle Earth merit?
