Review: The Spiritual World of The Hobbit By: James Stuart Bell

The Spiritual World of the HobbitThe Spiritual World of the Hobbit by James Stuart Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful companion book to take along with a reread of The Hobbit. Written truly by a Tolkien lover to bring enlightenment and extra spiritual message to the reader. Go in depth within chapters, characters, the development of good versus evil, and the the Divine. References to The Silmarillion and comparisons to Catholicism are made and easily understood, with quotes and verses included.
From leadership to Divine Assistance, this is the book that you want to share and would be a great use in your book club to discuss. Mr. Bell has not left a stone unturned in Tolkien's work, and he reminds us that just as Bilbo - we are unfinished and there is more to us than we even know. I hope you will pick this one up and enjoy the journey.
