2005 Logos Bookstores Award winner for Best Youth Book
The author of Walking with Frodo takes readers on an adventure of faith with this devotional that relates themes from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit to living the Christian life. Unlike the fateful quest Frodo was asked to carry out, Bilbo's journey came as an unexpected adventure. Readers will be reminded that God chooses us to be unlikely heroes in the adventure of life.
If you enjoy Sarah Arthur's "Walking with Frodo," then you'll naturally want her Bilbo book. Yes, "The Hobbit" comes before "The Lord of the Rings," but we suggest you start down this pathway with Frodo.
Arthur has some experience as a youth leader and is an evangelical Christian, so she invites readers on a journey of carefully considering how themes in Tolkien's tale relate to Bible passages and the modern lives of young Christians.
This book, also, can be used easily with groups. It's aimed at young people, but many adults will enjoy it as well.
