Finding God in The Hobbit is a book written by author Jim Ware on the subject of Christianity in The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. It was preceded by Finding God in the Lord of the Rings, which Ware coauthored along with Kurt Bruner.
- "With a simple hobbit in a simple hobbit-hole, J. R. R. Tolkien opened the window on a whole new world that has captured the imaginations of millions. But The Hobbit―now a major motion picture―is far more than goblin attacks, dragon-hoards, and riddles in the dark. It’s a journey that changes a simple hobbit named Bilbo―and us―along the way. In Finding God in The Hobbit, Jim Ware, coauthor of the popular Finding God series, unlocks the mysteries of Middle-earth, sharing insightful reflections on scenes and characters from Tolkien’s classic. And as you travel through Middle-earth, you’ll start to discover some ways in which God is still very much at work in our world―and how he has a bigger purpose for you than you can ever imagine."
