Lord of the Rings Guides & Books
It's been called the greatest fantasy epic of our time. Copies of the book have circled the globe, as paper editions and audio editions; and now with the movies available, we can read, listen to, and watch the story of the Third Age of Middle Earth. We can study the books now, too. These booklets are guides which will help you delve a little deeper into your reading of the trilogy by asking questions on vocabulary; bringing up discussion and writing topics; and zeroing in on various aspects of the literature for greater analysis. One of the main themes in the study guides is to explore the trilogy for Christian principles and biblical parallels that can be found written into the characters and their story. There are four guides, each meant for a study of about two weeks. Predetermined answers are included in the guides, though there are some activities where answers will vary. Pre- and post-reading activities, extra information, and "Tolkien Trivia" all play a part to help you more thoroughly enjoy and understand your exploration of The Lord of the Rings.
If you prefer all the Lord of the Rings study guides in one volume, consider Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Study Guide . This spiral-bound volume contains all four study guides. This compilation guide is also available "with Reproducibles" (005898), which contains the study guides plus copier-friendly reproducible sheets of the activities. ~ Zach
