Is The Hobbit OK for My Kids?

The Hobbit Deserves Your Parental Involvement. “Despite The Hobbit’s origins in a Christian worldview, a blanket endorsement is undeserved – and I’d say that about any work of popular art and culture. Such endorsements can unintentionally provide parents with the false idea that they can place this book or movie or digital download in front of their children without having to engage in critique or conversation about it. We have the God-given privilege of shaping our children’s worldview – and that includes discussing the media that is influencing their thoughts. This responsibility applies to any pop culture phenomenon – even The Hobbit.”
