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.
