The Ideal of Kingship in the Writings of Charles Williams, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien: Divine Kingship is Reflected in Middle-Earth, By Christopher Scarf, ISBN: 9780227174012

“This is a knowledgeable and sympathetic study wich brings us closer to the outlook of three intriguing writers moulded by a world we have already left behind us. Dr Scarf is impressively familiar with the rich and varied cultural frame of reference within which the Inklings operated. Even more important, he is imaginatively responsive, as they were, to the traditions of kingship and Christianity and the connections between them. He is a helpful and reliable guide through the countries of their minds.”

Norman Vance, Professor of English Literature and Intellectual History (English), University of Sussex.
