The Wisdom of Hobbits: Unearthing Our Humanity at 3 Bagshot Row (Paperback)
"Thought provoking and engaging." - Amanda Drake, The Tolkien Society
The works of J.R.R. Tolkien are some of literature's most beloved. For decades, scholars, fans, and critics alike have been discussing and debating the professor's Legendarium-much ink has been spilled, many books bound, all offering their unique perspectives.
Add The Wisdom of Hobbits to that growing number.
In this hopeful yet at times poignant homage, Matthew J. Distefano focuses on everyone's favorite halfling friend: the Hobbit. A charming people, this Shire-based race has captivated, enthralled, and enchanted the hearts and minds of millions. Though not a religious society, the author argues that spiritual truths-love, kindness, generosity, hope, and compassion-can be found within their familiar yet still relevant and didactic tales.
So, come and enter a world of adventure and intrigue. Whether it is your first foray into Middle-earth or the Shire is your second home, allow Distefano to inspire you toward discovering your own inner Hobbit.
