Product Description

Brave Bilbo Baggins, wise Gandalf, deceitful Gollum, the sly dragon Smaug... Tolkien's intriguing characters leap off the pages of The Hobbit. But in what ways was his narrative influenced by his Christian beliefs? In this fascinating guide, Brown uncovers key elements to help you understand how Tolkien's nuanced faith is "absorbed into the story."

Publisher's Description

In his beloved story, The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien takes readers into a world unlike any other, yet so much seems familiar. As Bilbo journeys there and back again, glimpses of the spiritual are seen. Previous guides to Tolkien’s fiction have often made one of two wrong turnings: either they have entirely overlooked the Christian elements or they have claimed to find “Christian” elements everywhere, going far beyond the fundamental aspects that have been absorbed into the story.

The Christian World of The Hobbit does what no book has done: it brings Tolkien fans new delight by introducing a side of Tolkien that is rarely explored but vitally important to his writings—especially to The Hobbit. Written by internationally regarded Tolkien scholar, Devin Brown, this approachable, witty, and highly entertaining.
