Walking With Bilbo

Walking With Bilbo by Sarah Arthur

About The Book:
2005 Logos Bookstores Award winner for Best Youth Book. 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.

My Thoughts:
This is a great book for The Hobbit fans. But you really do not need to know anything about The Hobbit to enjoy this book, and understand it. It tells its own story. I love the scripture after each chapter, and the "Going Further" questions as well. A great devotional for young people!

About The Author:
Sarah Arthur is a fun-loving speaker and the author of numerous devotionals and other resources on the intersection of faith and great stories. Her first book was the best-selling youth devotional, "Walking with Frodo: A Devotional Journey through The Lord of the Rings," followed by the award-winning "Walking with Bilbo: A Devotional Adventure through The Hobbit." Her eighth book, released in the spring of 2013, is "Mommy Time: 90 Devotions for New Moms." A graduate of Wheaton College and Duke University Divinity School, she speaks around the country on the role of stories and imagination in spiritual formation. She lives in Lansing, Michigan with her very busy toddler, Micah John, and her husband, Tom, pastor of Sycamore Creek Church. Sarah blogs at www.saraharthur.com.
