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 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.
