Progeny Press The Hobbit Study Guide

The Hobbit is the first in Tolkien's acclaimed Middle Earth series. Against his better judgment, Bilbo Baggins agrees to accompany a troupe of dwarves and Gandalf the wizard on a quest to avenge their people against an evil dragon and to recover a hoard of lost treasure. This classic tale explores personal loyalty, wisdom, greed, and ambition as the group struggles through Middle-earth toward their goals.

A good introductory guide for teachers and others who wish to explore the deep Christian principles behind this timeless childrens tale. It is full of questions that students can answers about the story and topics for further research. Most interesting is that it also has questions that delve, not just into the story, but into ones self. There are a couple errors in the biographical section in the beginning but otherwise quite recommended for a general overview of the spirituality of the tale, and not just for grades 8-12 that is was written for. Have your Bible in one hand and The Hobbit in another and enjoy the journey! For much greater depth into the Christian themes of the story, I highly recommend Walking with Bilbo by Sarah Arthur and Finding God in The Hobbit by Jim Ware.
