Finding God in the Hobbit reads like a devotional. It does cover several deep topics at times, but each chapter was too short to do some of the topics justice.
Each chapter follows this structure: First an extensive (a few pages) quoting from The Hobbit. Then, an explanation of whatever that passage is supposed to signify, with lots of additional material cited as and when needed. If you haven't read The Hobbit, all this quoting is going to disorientate you.
The topics covered in this book are actually quite interesting. I would have preferred it if the author narrowed down the number of topics, and instead, chose to go in depth in a few of them. It would have made it much richer reading, instead of fleeing bites.
Otherwise, there's not much to differentiate it from the other Hobbit Devotionals I've reviewed. They're all good, and it really just depends on which one you pick up first.
My favourite quote from this book is:
"For to laugh in desperate circumstances and sing in the face of disaster is nothing less than an act of bold and daring faith. It's a sign of salvation to the watching world, evidence of hope that lies just beyong the fringes of the darkness."Disclaimer: I got a free copy of this book courtesy of Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for a free and honest review
