Sola Frodo: The Kings of Middle-Earth and the Doctrines of Grace

Happy Reformation Day! Five hundred years ago today, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the church in Wittenberg, setting into motion a reformation and a revolution that will never end.

The Protestant Reformation would eventually come to be defined by its five distinctive points, or “solas”: short phrases that guide and underlay the beliefs of the Protestant Church. But as important as they are, sometimes they can be difficult to understand.

But while I was studying the Solas, I noticed something interesting: each and every one of them can be explained through one of the rulers of Middle-Earth that the Hobbits meet during the events of Lord of the Rings.

So, in celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, today we’re releasing a day-long miniseries called Sola Frodo: The Kings of Middle-Earth and the Doctrines of Grace. You’ll see five more short posts today:

We hope you enjoy. Keep your eye out on Facebook or here for the first post, later this morning. At dawn, look to the East.
