    schema:description "For a generation of men and women, the First World War brought the end of innocence-- and the end of faith. Yet for J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, the Great War deepened their spiritual quest. Both men served as soldiers on the Western Front, survived the trenches, and used the experience of that conflict to ignite their Christian imagination. Had there been no Great War, there would have been no Hobbit, no Lord of the Rings, no Narnia. Loconte shows how the two writers created works that gave an unabashedly Christian vision of hope in a world tortured by doubt and disillusionment."@en ;
