Description

The classic prequel to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series.
Bilbo Baggins is a respectable hobbit - one of a race of small, quiet, country folk who inhabit The Shire, their pastoral corner of Middle-earth. One day he receives an unexpected visit from the great wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves. The dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, have decided to return to the land of their ancestors and reclaim the treasure taken from them years before by Smaug, a terrible dragon.
On Gandalf's recommendation, Thorin and his company wish to enlist Bilbo as their burglar. Bilbo would much rather stay at home where he is comfortable, safe, and has a pocket handkerchief. But the idea of adventure appeals to something deep within him and Bilbo is drawn into the quest and soon faces giant spiders, goblins, and worse as he travels the great distance to the Lonely Mountain, where the dwarves' treasure awaits—as does the dragon and war!

    Wonderful literary adventure

    My son and I are halfway through this amazing book and the study guide is an priceless companion to our adventure! We have laughed so hard and truly been inspired to deeply consider all the wonderful imagery and symbolism in this timeless classic. We love the Going Deeper sections - as they tie our readings into Gods Word and really get my son thinking in terms of how to connect lessons from the Bible to the topics and themes in this entertaining book. Well done progeny press! We will be buying study guides from you in the future!
