Product Description:

What does one of the most famous comic book heroes in history have in common with the average Christian? You might be surprised! From his transformation into a new creation to his struggles with forgiving those who have hurt him, Spider-Man’s story offers a startling parallel to the miraculous and everyday experiences of those who follow Jesus. Inspired by the stories and characters in three of the biggest box-office smashes of all time, The Soul of Spider-Man zooms in beyond the special-effects and big stars to examine the unexpected spiritual lessons spun into the background of the Spider-Man films. Readers will heed the warning against greed when they rewind the tragedy of the Green Goblin in the first Spider-Man, and will understand the importance of humility as they take a second look at the damage caused by Peter Parker’s inflated ego in Spider-Man 3. This fast-moving, entertaining take on the spirituality of Spider-Man includes a group discussion guide for film clubs, youth groups, or young adult small groups.

From the Back Cover:

Inspired by three of the biggest box-office smashes of all time, The Soul of Spider- Man zooms in beyond the special effects and big stars to some surprising spiritual lessons you can learn from the Spider-Man films. Each of the movies is a powerhouse of truth about life, love, good, evil, revenge, forgiveness and making the right choices. Now, with a little help from Spidey, you can learn how to apply these truths to your life—because “with great power comes great responsibility.” As you rewind the tragedy of the Green Goblin, look deeper at the danger of greed . . . and learn how to avoid it. Find out how Doctor Octopus’s psycho arms are a pretty accurate picture of what it’s like to wrestle with temptation . . . and get smart about defeating it. And when you survey the damage caused by Peter Parker’s inflated ego in Spider-Man 3, leave pride where it belongs: in the dumpster. From his transformation into a new creation to his struggles with forgiving those who have hurt him, Spider-Man’s story is an amazing parallel to the miraculous and everyday experiences of those who follow Jesus. But you don’t have to wait for a spider bite to become a hero!
