Walking With Frodo: A Devotional Journey Through the Lord of the Rings

“Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings epic tale has long captivated readers with its parallels to biblical truth. And now, Walking with Frodo looks at the biblical themes found in the classic Lord of the Rings trilogy. The 18 devotions pair vices and virtues (deception vs. honesty, light vs. darkness, good vs. evil) displayed by characters in The Lord of the Rings and bring to light what the Bible has to say. A must-have for longtime and new series fans.”


Walking with Bilbo: A Devotional Adventure Through the Hobbit

“The author of Walking with Frodo takes readers on an adventure of faith with this devotional that relates themes from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit to living the Christian life. Unlike the fateful quest Frodo was asked to carry out, Bilbo’s journey came as an unexpected adventure. Readers will be reminded that God chooses us to be unlikely heroes in the adventure of life.”
