Tolkien on Sex

Albert Mohler has a helpful essay on J. R. R. Tolkien's writing to his son on the temptation, dangers, allure, and proper meaning of sex. Though a lover of Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings for decades, I've never been able to find final satisfaction on Tolkien's own standing before Christ. It is well-known that he was a devoted Roman Catholic, which tells one both much and nothing at the same time. But everything Mohler cites from his writing is good, well-put, and helpful from a Christian perspective.
