Description
With a simple hobbit in a simple hobbit-hole, J. R. R. Tolkien opened the window on a whole new world that has captured the imaginations of millions. But The Hobbit --now a major motion picture--is far more than goblin attacks, dragon-hoards, and riddles in the dark. It's a journey that changes a simple hobbit named Bilbo--and us--along the way.In Finding God in The Hobbit , Jim Ware, coauthor of the popular Finding God series, unlocks the mysteries of Middle-earth, sharing insightful reflections on scenes and characters from Tolkien's classic. And as you travel through Middle-earth, you'll start to discover some ways in which God is still very much at work in our world--and how he has a bigger purpose for you than you can ever imagine.
