Be aware that Pearce expects that you have read both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings before you read this book.
of "The Two Roads," (Robert Frost,) and the "Two Ways," (Psalm 1), Bilbo chooses the adventurous way of his Took ancestry. With his companions Bilbo encounters many trials and disappointments. But in the end, he rejoices in the self- knowledge his has learned from his sacrifices for the love of others and the submission to the workings of God's moment by moment on his journey.
