Thinking With the Inklings

As a Catholic scholar who is also a fan of the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, Owen Barfield and their friends, I have, through the years, written several essays which reflect upon their writings. Some of them have been traditional in form — critical essays looking to present their beliefs. Others, however, have gone beyond mere exploration of their beliefs; in them, I seek to think along with the Inklings, that is, to see how some of their ideas might impact my own religious and philosophical views.

In this collection, you will find examples of both.
