From the Back Cover:

Uncover the deeper truths in the tale that started it all.
With a simple hobbit in a hobbit-hole, J. R. R. Tolkien opened the window on a whole new world that has captured millions of imaginations and changed the face of literature forever. But this story of unexpected adventure is far more than goblin attacks, dragon-hoards, and riddles in the dark. It’s a journey that changes a hobbit named Bilbo―and us―along the way.

Jim Ware, coauthor of the bestselling Finding God in The Lord of the Rings, once again unlocks the mysteries of Middle-earth with insightful reflections on the scenes and characters of The Hobbit. Just as the very ordinary Bilbo Baggins was caught up in a web of momentous events beyond his understanding, so you also are part of a larger story. Travel to Middle-earth to discover ways in which God is still very much at work in our world―and has a bigger purpose for you than you could ever imagine.

There and Back Again
What happened when Bilbo flew out the door and onto the road without even a pocket-handkerchief? Beneath this unexpected adventure are the timeless truths of God’s protection and sovereignty. As you explore Bilbo’s journey, you’ll see glimpses of your own.

With penetrating insight, Jim Ware’s inspirational reflections reveal the supernatural themes in Tolkien’s story of hobbits and wizards, as well as the Author behind every great adventure. Ware shows us that Tolkien’s story is really an illustration of our world and relationship with God. Discover the deep connections that link this fantasy world to ours, and glimpse the mysterious workings of the Author of the Tale in your own life.
