I don’t know the last time I was this excited about a movie. J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic book comes to the big screen this Friday! I can’t wait! If for some reason you have been in a coma for a few months, you can check out the trailer below…

As we prepare for the release of this new Peter Jackson trilogy (yes, there are gonna be three of these bad boys), I want to share some thoughts over the next couple days. Tomorrow, a longer post reflecting on one particular theme of this great story. Today, a few questions to get you thinking and talking about this film? (For those of you unfamiliar with this story, use these questions for a discussion with friends and family after seeing the film.)

1. Why do you like the story of The Hobbit? Why do you think that this book has been so popular?

2. Which character(s) do you resonate with the most? Are you a hobbit-like homebody or an adventure-seeking dwarf?

3. What is the message of The Hobbit? Is there one overarching message or several?

4. Who is the hero of the story? What makes them heroic?

5. Where (if anywhere) do you see evidence of Tolkein’s Christian faith in The Hobbit?

Check back tomorrow for more!
