  1. Tom Shippey’s attitude is that to suggest Frodo is a Christ-figure or symbolic of Christ carrying the Cross is wrong and a mistake. Joseph Pearce on the other hand says that there are many Christ-like and Saint-like characters, including Frodo. As for Dark Shadows, all I will say about it is that it was a soap opera with a gothic/horror theme. P.S. I didn’t know that you listen to Jimmy Akin. I listen to The Secrets of Doctor Who and Star Trek Podcasts and sometimes Jimmy Akin’s Mysterious World.
