A Hobbit Devotional: Bilbo Baggins and the Bible by Ed Strauss

So everyone is super hyped for the new movie strarring John Watson... erm... I mean Martin Freeman as Bilbo. Luckily, Barbour is ready to help you celebrate by excavating Tolkien's more evangelical roots and the parables that can be found in his story. 
Stocking stuffer? I think so! 

From the Publisher:
Those who enjoy J. R. R. Tolkien—even those new to his classic stories—will love A Hobbit Devotional featuring 60 humorous, challenging, and encouraging devotionals. Soon to be a major motion picture, The Hobbit has fascinated readers for more than 70 years. Now, this tale of humble folk who overcome fear, discouragement, and despair through steadfastness, courage, and hope forms the basis of a brand-new devotional book. Each reading sketches a scene from The Hobbit, relates it to a contemporary life situation that readers might experience personally, and brings in the teaching of a relevant Bible story or verse.

I received a review copy through Netgalley on behalf of Barbour

I'm glad to see this, actually. It means I have a shot at selling my LotR book.
