The Bookening continues to discuss J. R. R. Tolkien's The Two Towers.
Is Gandalf a Christ figure? Is it even good to look for Christ figures in literature? Or is there a point at which a wizard fighting a Balrog is just that ... a wizard fighting a Balrog? Brandon and Nathan (Jake was away on Important Pastor Business) discuss all this and also HELM'S DEEP, YES!
