Book Study (Monsters, Monster Kingdom, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Dans)

A lot of hate from a person who espouses the Bible…

J.R.R. Tolkien and the Total Depravity of All People Named Dan

I honestly did not expect anyone to take the time to study the passage and send in their thoughts.

BUT, one very faithful reader of mine worked really really hard, studied the passage in my book, Defeating Monsters Through the Power of J.R.R. Tolkien, sent me the longest email, shared some really good points, and shared their question. And I am so grateful! Shout out to this amazing person! (You know who you are.) If I were to start a cult, which I’m not planning to do this July 21st, 2018, coming soon to a forest near you, then this person would be my very first member.

In this post, I will share my thoughts on the passage and I’ll answer the one question I received. 😛

    1. I’m not.

      Feel free to report them if you think it’s abusive. Jenny and others thought this was aimed at me, and I have no reason to conclude otherwise after noticing it seems to have started right after a certain person got kicked out of my November Word Weaver Writing Contest for being a nut case (that I had to block on WordPress and form my email because they kept harassing me.)
