My Review of Hobbits, You and the Spiritual World by Jill Richardson


Enjoy my review of Jill Richardson's new book 





I am a Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fan and loved this book. As a Christian, I really appreciated the author's comparisons to the Bible and her in-depth study gave me insights that had escaped me when I read all the books and watched the movies. 


With the second Hobbit movie coming out, I can't wait to see it, now that I have a better understanding of the characters. The more I learn about the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, the more I see Tolkien as being one of the greatest writers of all time. Jill Richardson's commentary and analyses helped me to see the genius in this epic masterpiece, the creativity, and the passion of JRR Tolkien.. Great insights for those who love Tolkien's works.

John 3:16 Marketing Network Excerpt Tour of “The Donkey and the King”, Ninth Stop



Excerpt Nine



A donkey longs for an easier life with no heavy burdens and no one to tell him what to do. He runs away and becomes lost, but “good” finds him in the most unlikely of places.

Travel to the Bible lands and meet Baruch, a stubborn donkey, and other lovable animals:  Lowly, the pig; Much-Afraid, a small, lame dog; Worldly Crow, who isn’t as bright as he thinks he is; and a sheep, Little, sent on a special mission by the King. The ending of the story will delight young readers as they discover “good” exists in the world if they look and listen for it.


When I was young, I hated doing chores. I suppose I was this donkey, rebellious and self-determined, but desperate for a friend—the one friend who would never leave me (or you).


Here is a short excerpt from “The Donkey and the King.” This is the ninth (and final) stop on the tour. If you missed the previous eight stops, here is a listing of all of them:


I hope you will visit all the blogs and participate in the John 3:16 Marketing Network Book Launch and win the grand prize. See details below.



The donkey and the sheep took off down the road.
“We are going to a garden,” said the sheep. “It’s a beautiful place full of flowers, friends, and, most of all, the King, but…”
“But what?” Baruch asked.




“There is only one gate, one door, one place to get in.
An angel guards it with a flaming sword.
You must hear the King’s voice to enter the garden.”

*~*~*~*~*~*


On every page is the hidden word “good.” Can you find it in the drawings above? If not, you can look below and see where the word is hidden.

The unique quality about Kindle-enhanced books is that the drawings and font size can be enlarged for young readers. And for parents who can’t find the word, a QR code (a free AP is available for smart phones) and link is provided to facilitate the search. Some pages are more challenging than others (for older readers).

If you enjoyed looking for the mouse in “Goodnight Moon” when you were young, your child will delight in looking for “good” in “The Donkey and the King.” The moral:  There is good in the world if you look and listen for the King’s voice.
