A Hobbit Devotional

 

The Hobbit is a tale of humble Shirefolk who overcome a seemingly impossible task through dedication, courage,
and hope.

A Hobbit Devotional: Bilbo Baggins and the Bible
Where is Christ in The Hobbit?

In Tolkien's Middle-earth, there is right and wrong, goodness and evil. This story is about how a Baggins had an adventure and ends with a Baggins stopping the end of Middle Earth as they knew it.
But is it Christian? Peek into the background of the creator of hobbits, J.R.R. Tolkien and you may realize "there's more to this Hobbit than meets the eye".
So the question of whether Tolkien’s writings should be considered “Christian works” is complex.

Join me as we seek Christ in this incredible story, and share with me how Tolkien’s enduring faith was expressed in his novels.

Date: Saturday May 2
Time: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
