The Soul of Spiderman Unexpected Spiritual Insights from the Legendary Superhero by Jeff Dunn, Adam Palmer

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.
