    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleRe reading July 2016First reading May 2015 Joseph Pearce has done a beautiful job of explaining the rich symbolism in The Hobbit and helping us to see how it can be both a children's fairy story and a vehicle for the transmission of faith While this book relies heavily on understanding The Lord of the Rings to truly understand The Hobbit I appreciate that approach as it gives the reader a sense of continuity between all of the stories of Middle Earth Very insightful very accessible writing style and just plain good storytelling This was a very satisfying commentary on a beloved book

    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleJRR Tolkien as his friend CS Lewis were devout Catholics This small book was interesting on the meanings behind the storiesI always loved the similarities between Lewis and Tolkien as they compared stories every evening at the pubWith the new movie coming about Tolkien's life this is great

    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleVery readable thoughtful and actually enjoyable I think it could be given right along with the original book Pearce manages to give meaning and insight without sucking the life out of Tolkien's story or contorting it into a didactic parableWhile his opinions are just that Pearce's interpretations are consistent with Tolkien's other works and documented beliefs A fun read that enriches the source book

    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleThough a deeply spiritual study of Tolkien's works—in particular The Hobbit—it is practical than theoretical and easier to read than other scholarly works It tells the journey

    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleThis book purports to tell us the hidden meaning of The Hobbit Now I haven't read Tolkien's letters yet though that library book sits enticingly on my bedside table but I do recall his famous uote about his stories being just stories not allegory etc However one's mindset informs one's creations and Tolkien was a devout Catholic so there's to The Hobbit than meets the eyePearce is a good guide so far but he again falls prey to that habit I've notice when trying his other essays His utter certainty about how to interpret the story and his utter insistence that you see it his way have turned me off in the past He's better about it here than in other places but yet I see it stillThat doesn't mean the book is not good It just means that one must

    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleThis was a very good companion to The Hobbit It does a great job of showing what the imagery means and helps point out things you may not pick up on your first readingRecommended especially if reading The Hobbit on your own

    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleI enjoyed this uick read of only 120 or pages which tours through the narrative of The Hobbit commenting on its various human and theological points It is important to have read the novel before otherwise it's one big spoiler But Pearce has a gift of assembling the underlying themes of stories without being either hyper academic on the one hand or mainstream simplistic on the other

    ePUB Joseph Pearce  ePUB Bilbos Journey eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk bilbos kindle, journey free, Bilbos Journey KindleThis is a good book outlining some of the themes incorporated in The Hobbit and explains how critics who complain about things like deus ex machina are missing the point and subtlety
