The dark, fearsome Ringwraiths are searching for a Baggins….
Frodo Baggins has inherited a ring from his uncle, Bilbo, little knowing it is the Ring of Power that will enable Sauron to rule and destroy all that is good in Middle-Earth. From his humble and comfortable life, Frodo is thrust into a world so much bigger than he has imagined. How can one small hobbit make a difference against overwhelming odds and evil, and why continue when failure appears certain?
It is up to Frodo, with the help of the Fellowship, including his faithful servant and friend, Sam, and the old and wise wizard, Gandalf, to carry the One Ring to Mordor and destroy it.
Facing Ringwraiths, Orcs, heartbreaking loss, and danger every moment, the adventure begins.

All of the unit lessons are written from a Christian perspective!
I bought this study guide for my 9th grade home schooled daughter. She works through each section and then we discuss it. So far the guide has really helped her understand deeper aspects of the novel. I love that these guides are Christian and always make comparisons to situations in the Bible. Our discussions have been wonderful! Thanks for making the immediate download available. It is a very convenient option.
I am glad you are asking for our opinion. We are enjoying the book study very much. It is such a great way to learn through a favorite book. Your service was excellent ! Thank you again and we will think of your company when ordering another book study and refer your company to others.
I'm currently in grade 9 and this study guide is really good, it helps me to see the parallel between some parts of the Fellowship of the Ring and the Bible. It's very easy to use and clear to follow. I would recommend, however, to read the book section by section and not read the entire book first like the guide suggests. Otherwise, you have to keep skimming back to parts you might have forgotten or missed and you might as well read the entire book again. I would totally recommend this guide to all my friends.
