The Hobbit

This September we’re going there and back again to celebrate J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy.

We’re looking for someone to share in an adventure. On Monday, Sept. 5, our Lorehaven Guild heroes begin our tour through J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy The Hobbit.

Join the comfort-loving yet thrill-seeking Bilbo Baggins, a company of thirteen Dwarves, and the sporadic yet faithful wizard Gandalf on this quest to recover the lost kingdom of Erebor. Of course, you’ll also face battles of wits and arms versus fantastical foes like:

  • A trio of trolls who do not speak in drawing-room fashion;
  • Storms, freezing cold, stone-giants, and ravenous wolves;
  • Hordes of mountain goblins and their wicked king;
  • The sneaking, riddling creature Gollum.

For your hospitality our sincerest thanks, and for your offer of professional assistance our grateful acceptance. Terms: cash on delivery, up to and not exceeding one fourteenth of total profits (if any); all travelling expenses guaranteed in any event; funeral expenses to be defrayed by us or our representatives, if occasion arises and the matter is not otherwise arranged for.

Lorehaven Guild logo 1.1About the Lorehaven Guild

The Lorehaven Guild serves a community of heroes who gather to celebrate Christian-made fantastical fiction with delight and discernment. These stories include (but are not limited to) fantasy, science fiction, and beyond.

Heroes of the Guild will explore their favorite creative works in these genres. We will focus on Christian-made stories, yet occasionally include general market books.

Guild heroes can join monthly Main Quest parties that travel into the fantastical worlds of new books. We will explore these stories’ beauty, goodness, and truth (and opposites!), applying their meanings to the real world of our ultimate Author.

Heroes can also join occasional Side Quest parties that travel into other books, such as older Christian-made stories or general market novels.
