This post was brought to my attention… I found it quite interesting, as I had no idea Tolkien was involved in this sort of thing:
The author writes regarding himself:
My name is Simon Holloway and
I am a scribe of the Pharisees
I am a Jew
I am a post-graduate student
I am a scribe of the Pharisees.
I am the Director of Education at North Shore Temple Emanuel, and am doing a PhD in Classical Hebrew and Biblical Studies at The University of Sydney. I am also in possession of a BA in Communication, a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts (Biblical Studies; Honours), a Postgraduate Diploma in Languages (Classical Hebrew, Aramaic, Syriac; Honours) and a Masters in Ancient History, for which I majored in Latin, Greek and Coptic.
