Book Review: Finding God in the Hobbit by Jim Ware

In Finding God in the Hobbit, Jim Ware looks at the spiritual significance of themes found in J.R. Tolkien's book, The Hobbit. This devotional, type book, moves systematically through the Hobbit, comparing Bilbo's adventures and the lessons he learns, to our own lives, and lessons God teaches us through our daily lives.

I was excited when Tyndale Publishing offered me a free copy of Finding God in the Hobbit to review, just as I was finishing up reading the Hobbit to my daughters for bedtime story, and this book did not disappoint. The chapters are short and to the point, making it a great devotional reading for busy days. The book obviously assumes you have read the Hobbit, but it also assumes you have read the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which might not always be a safe assumption, but all in all, this is a wonderful way to bring another layer of meaning to a great book!
