REVIEW: Hobbits, You & the Spiritual World of Middle-Earth

Hobbits, You, and the Spiritual World - Jill Marie Richardson

This book caught my attention because it combines both Lord of the Rings (one of my favorite trilogies) with the teachings of the Bible to help teenagers learn to live a life that Jesus would be proud of. The author painstakingly compares different beloved characters from LotR with people from the Bible, telling a story from both, then asking questions to help the reader take a deep look at the life they are living. As you go through the book, you are reminded of why you loved the characters in the books so much and find yourself looking at them in a new and unique way, especially when you remember that J.R.R. Tolkien was a deeply religious man himself.

 

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
