Ep. 029.5 LOTR Series: Eucatastrophe, Consummation, and Dwight Schrute

This week we have on our one and only assistant to the podcast hosts Paul Lytle. He joins us as we talk about what “eucatastrophe” is and how that fits into the Christian meta-narrative we have been covering in this series on Lord of the Rings.

As we dive into the last portion of the meta-narrative, the consummation portion, we start off with the idea and word Tolkien himself made up: Eucatastrophe. This idea is the turning point in a story from where things look hopeless and in the end to a hope and victory.

Discussing eucatastrophe in LOTR, we all take turns talking about the point we like that reflects this idea best to us.

Hope you enjoyed the show and please share it if you did!
