Book Review: Walking with Bilbo

Walking with Bilbo. Sarah Arthur. 2005. Tyndale. 224 pages.

I enjoyed this one. I didn't have high--or low--expectations for it, though I was hoping it wouldn't try to turn The Hobbit completely into an allegory or parable. I liked the fact that it would take a sentence or two from The Hobbit and then connect it to a biblical principle. Each chapter or each devotion referenced a specific chapter or scene in The Hobbit and also referenced a couple of verses from the Bible, usually from the New Testament. Each devotion provided a list of further scriptures to read on your own if you wanted to get more from it, discussion questions were also included.

  • Looking for a Few Good Men (Or Hobbits)
  • Job Description, Please
  • Sheer Madness
  • Traveling Light
  • Now You See Him, Now You Don't
  • Plans Go Astray

  • For Pity's Sake

This sounds like a devotional my husband might enjoy.
