"There is only one Road," declares Bilbo Baggins, "and it's like a great river; its springs are at every doorstep, and every path is its tributary." "It's a dangerous business," he adds, "going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to." On September 11, 2001, more than three thousand Americans were swept to their deaths as a result of terrorist attacks. With uncanny prescience, J.R.R. Tolkien predicted that ours would be a time of terror, with frightful forces of evil striking both from within and without. About Ralph Wood Ralph WoodRalph C. Wood, University Professor of Theology and Literature at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, holds B.A. and M.A. degrees from Texas A&M University-Commerce, as well as M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Chicago.
