Dreams fears pleasures laughter God's unexpected intervention endurance tried patience kindness and dependence on God continually weave together to shape our lives; through them we learn dependence on God which should prevail despite any circumstances Bilbo's adventure in Middle Earth is no exception and his journey is Jim Ware's illustration of the latterIn the prologue the author explains that this book is the result of his own reflections on The Hobbit which eventually took him back to God the one who has made his life meaningful by giving it a purpose just as Bilbo's life through the fulfillment of his purpose found its true meaningThe chapters have a simple and straightforward format First there is an extract from The Hobbit which is followed by an analytical description of the approach and attitude towards God that can be found in several people in the Bible As a valuable token each chapter is closed with a simple and deep statement that summarizes the spiritual lesson we can learn from Bilbo's own pathDespite the simplicity of the format the deep and transcendental insights of each chapter are worthy to be savored slowly even than once This is one of the few books that have stirred in me the wish to reread chapters and paragraphs even sentencesMoreover the richness of the words Mr Ware uses is rarely found in today's popular literature making this a delightful read for anyone who appreciates the vast possibilities of a higher linguistic register Precisely because of this I would definitely recommend this book as a teaching tool in any literature or applied theology class; it is well worth the experience Besides this his numerous end notes and bibliography will prove to be good references I can also picture this book being used as a devotional particularly by those who like Tolkien or this kind of storiesAnd just like the author himself states this book describes a journey of spiritual discovery but is not the decisive authority on the matter very probably the reason why Bible uotes and principles are present throughout the book It is his way of writing about how the great Author of life is always shaping our pathI received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review This has not biased my opinionComment Comment | Permalink

With The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings being re introduced to young and old Finding God in the Hobbit is an allegorical reflection of Middle Earth and how like Bilbo Baggins finds himself an ordinary hobbit caught up in extraordinary events so the same with God at work sometimes in the forefront and sometimes behind the scenes in our livesUsing passages from The Hobbit and Bible Jim Ware compares the two along with what we can take in our own lives not just from Bilbo Baggins but what the Bible has to offer in its own stories of ordinary people often used in extraordinary waysSharing bits of triva not only about The Hobbit but also about Tolkien Jim Ware really interweaves what readers can take from enjoying not just a timeless book like the Bible but even that of The HobbitWhat Jim Ware attempts and manages to convey throughout the book is how even in an exuisite tale like The Hobbit we can find hints of the major themes of God's work woven throughout tales of faith grace redemption and hope The book Finding God in the Hobbit is overall a short and easy read at 168 pages Filled with allegorical interpretations and ruminations based on both The Hobbit and the Bible Finding God in the Hobbit really helps take reading the book The Hobbit to a diferent level In addition Jim Ware's work brings out the themes that Tolkien's background as a Roman Catholic his blending of Celtic Anglo and Old Norse mythology that can be seen throughout the The Hobbit and the rest of the triologyAs a fan of Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings books Finding God in the Hobbit was a joy to read not only because of the loved passages that are included throughout the book but for the underlying Christian themes that though it wasn't the intent of the books when they were written can clearly be seen and recognized in the archetypes that are presented throughout the books

Finding God in the HobbitRds and riddles in the dark It's God in the ePUB #185 a journey that changes a simple hobbit named Bilbo and us along the wayIn Finding God in The Hobbit Jim Ware coauthor of the popular Finding God series unlocks the mysteries of Middle earth sharing insig. I always found that The Hobbit was the least good work of JRR Tolkien's books I saw it as a children's book and not uite exciting if you compare it to Lord Of The Rings The Silmarillion or other Tolkien's publications But when you read Ware's book you can find that Tolkien never wrote just to be published or to sell his books He always had a lesson to teachEven though that I found it sometimes exaggerating and I couldn't find it really reliable between religion and The Hobbit story; but what I loved the most about the book Finding God in the Hobbit is how the author could learn something with each word of the story And actually it changed my opinion about The Hobbit It's just like showing us that we choose how to understand a book But most of all that Tolkien is still amazing us
