  1. I think you might enjoy Dorothy Sayer’s The Mind of the Maker. It is very like Tolkien’s idea that we are made in the image of a maker, and so we make. The part about worth of work is full of insight. I noticed that there is an edition out with an introduction by Madeleine L’Engle. I dearly love L’Engle’s work. She had a wonderful way of showing holiness and goodness in the ordinary life. The Murry or Austin family having supper or walking in the woods and lying on a glacial erratic. I just might pick it up. Been too long since I’ve read any Sayers or L’Engle.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation! Subcreation is one of the most fascinating of Tolkien’s philosophical ideas. I just picked up a kindle version of Sayer’s The Mind of the Maker. Can’t wait to read it!

    1. Thanks Keith! That’s a very thorough look at Master Bombadil…may have to get you on the podcast! 😀
