Product Description

How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero?

What Makes a Hero? offers us an image of what it looks like to be victorious over trials and temptations. Looking at pop culture heroes and others through the lens of faith, Matt Rawle shows how Jesus turned the concept of hero on its head. In keeping with his theme, “Pop in Culture,” the book, DVD, Leader and Guide examine how good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, and overcoming adversity are fundamental to how Christians understand salvation. Heroes help us discern the good, fight for what’s right, define identity, execute justice, spark revolution, and save lives.

Session 1, titled Good, Evil, and God, looks at the story of Jesus through the lens of pop culture. Starting with Batman, Rawle uses superheroes and real-life heroes to examine how Jesus confronts good versus evil and reveals the presence of God.

Session 2, titled Right, Wrong, and Holy, describes the hero’s instinct for right and wrong. Ultimately, life is not about the choice between right and wrong, but the holy relationship with God.

Session 5, titled Old, New, and Covenant, uses Captain America to show how old and new can be embodied in one heroic figure. Christ goes beyond this as the beginning and the end of the hero story. Old and new remain, but the covenant with God is made new each day.

Session 6, titled Life, Death, and Resurrection, looks at the story of the death of Superman to illustrate our desperation when our heroes die. It is resurrection that makes a hero, and resurrection that gives us the light to build the Kingdom of God on earth.
