On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
We take a look at the latest installment in Peter Jackson’s reimagining of Middle Earth via The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. In this installment of Jackson’s Hobbit Trilogy, the dwarves, along with Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, continue their quest to reclaim Erebor, their homeland, from Smaug while Bilbo Baggins is in possession of a mysterious and magical ring. There is much “to-do” about Jackson’s interpretations and variations from the original text, and while that does raise some questions about story telling, we are more concerned with what we can garner from the narrative itself. Weak vs Strong, Legacy, Division, and keeping our eyes on the evil pulling the strings– all on this Episode of the show.
