Ed Strauss is a freelance writer living in British Columbia, Canada. He has authored 18 books for children, tweens, and adults and coauthored an additional 16. Ed has a passion for Biblical apologetics and besides writing for Barbour, has been published by Zondervan, Tyndale, Moody, and Focus on the Family.
Fans of The Hobbit will enjoy thinking about the lessons Strauss brings out from the adventures of Bilbo, Gandalf, and others in Middle Earth.
As Strauss moves through J. R. R. Tolkien's original book, we find ourselves introduced to the places and people which are familiar to those who have read The Hobbit. Each of the 60 devotions reviews a portion of Tolkien's book, concludes with a clear application and an appropriate scripture.
I have look forward to reading each day's snippit (of course, I never cheated and looked ahead.) Reading the devotional has made me even more eager for the movie's release this holiday season.
Being a Tolkien fan, and currently reading The Hobbit to my youngest daughter each bedtime, I have to say that this book is a joy. From the gorgeous cover picture, title font and thoughtful introduction, right through the 60 chapters of the text to the useful glossary of Hobbit related words and a timeline of how long the events in the story took to unfold, each page was a pleasure to read.
I do hope that in due course, Ed Strauss will produce one for The Lord of The Rings too.
I recommend this book to all readers. If you've never read The Hobbit, the devotional feeds you enough tidbits of fascinating facts and quotes from the book to whet your interest. If you're already a Middle Earth fan, you probably can't get enough of Hobbits and the Shire and this is a delightful way to appease your appetite for more. Either way, you'll find this book to be a smart investment.
