The Secret Fire Podcast – sent to burn at the heart of the world.

‘I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the shadow! You cannot pass.’

– The Lord Of The Rings, The Bridge Of Khazad-dûm

According to J.R.R. Tolkien the Secret Fire that was sent to burn at the heart of the world was the Holy Spirit. Therefore, when Gandalf the Grey told the Balrog on the bridge of Khazad-dûm that he was a servant of that Secret Fire, he was, in fact, claiming to be a servant of God. And so are we at the Secret Fire Podcast.

This image shows J.R.R. Tolkien in his study with a quote from letter 142 saying, "The Lord of the Rings is of course a fundamentally religious and Catholic work."

Join Michael, Brenden and Micah each week as we explore Middle-earth through Christian lenses beginning with The Lord Of The Rings. We will use books, film, music, The Lord Of The Rings Online, and more in order to better learn about the Professor’s legendarium, the Way of Jesus Christ, and the power of story in our lives.
