In a culture where truth is relative and morality is viewed as old-fashioned, Matthew Dickerson welcomes the chance to view the world through hobbit eyes: we have free will, our choices matter, and living a morally heroic life is possible.

A Hobbit Journey: Discovering the Enchantment of of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth is an engaging and morally thought-provoking book. A Tolkien expert, Matthew Dickerson shows how a Christian worldview and Christian themes undergird Tolkien's Middle-earth writings and how they are fundamentally important to understanding his vision.

With a simple hobbit in a simple hobbit-hole, Tolkien opened the window on a whole new world that has captured millions of imaginations and changed the face of literature forever.

Travel to Middle-earth to discover some ways in which God is still very much at work in our world---and has a bigger purpose for you than you can ever imagine.
