The sinister Ringwraiths are searching for a Baggins….
Frodo Baggins has inherited a ring from his uncle, Bilbo, unaware that it holds the power to enable Sauron's domination and the destruction of all that is good in Middle-Earth. Plucked from his modest and comfortable existence, Frodo finds himself thrust into a vast and unimaginable world. How can a small hobbit like him make a difference in the face of overwhelming evil and seemingly inevitable failure?

Now, it falls upon Frodo, aided by the Fellowship, which includes his loyal companion and friend, Sam, as well as the wise and experienced wizard, Gandalf, to bear the burden of the One Ring and journey to Mordor in order to destroy it. Facing the threat of Ringwraiths, Orcs, heart-wrenching loss, and constant peril, their adventure begins.

    Helped her understand deeper aspects

    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'm currently in grade 9

    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.
