About this item
Book SynopsisCaptain America assembles the Avengers. Iron Man battles Thanos. Luke Skywalker duels Darth Vader. Aragorn charges Mordor. Batman confronts the Joker. Superman destroys Doomsday. Wonder Woman defeats Ares. We are captivated. Why?
We are entranced by stories that take us to a world where heroes fight evil and sacrifice themselves for a greater good because we long for our world to be free from pain, suffering, and struggle. That's the real hope and promise of Jesus--when He returns to set things right.
In Hollywood Heroes, you'll see how:
- Your favorite movie heroes are patterned after the Ultimate Hero--Jesus of Nazareth
- Big screen stories parallel the real-world fight between good and evil
- Movies and characters can impart inspiring biblical life lessons on justice, purpose, courage, strength, sacrifice, faith, and love
Hollywood Heroes begins with the true story of a US Navy SEAL who faced evil and sacrificed himself to save his teammates. Authors Frank and Zach Turek then use Spider-Man's origin story to address the question: "Why would a good God allow evil?" You'll then read how seven movie franchises--Captain America, Iron Man, Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Batman, and Wonder Woman--portray the battle against evil, providing a set of modern-day parables that reveal truths about God and His mission for us.
