The Lord of the Rings trilogy has delighted millions of fans worldwide in both book and movie form. With the theatrical release of the two-part film The Hobbit slated for 2012 and 2013, intensive attention will once again turn to J. R. R. Tolkien's classic works.
In a culture where truth is relative and morality is viewed as old-fashioned, Matthew Dickerson welcomes the chance to view the world through hobbit eyes: we have free will, our choices matter, and living a morally heroic life is possible.
A Hobbit Journey: Discovering the Enchantment of of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth is an engaging and morally thought-provoking book. A Tolkien expert, Matthew Dickerson shows how a Christian worldview and Christian themes undergird Tolkien's Middle-earth writings and how they are fundamentally important to understanding his vision.
