Since ancient history, humans have created stories in an attempt to better understand the world around them. Thousands of years ago it was Zeus and Hercules. Now it's Superman, Batman, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four. In Holy Superheroes! (updated and expanded to include many recent comics and movies) you will discover how comic books - and the Hollywood adaptations they inspire - can influence our understanding of Good versus Evil, personal sacrifice, duty, and faith.

Comic books have become a twenty-first century mythology. In this book Pulitzer Prize nominated author Greg Garrett explores this mythology and extracts the profound truths that are revealed in the glossy pages, superhuman characters and fast-paced action. PLEASE NOTE: Some of the media discussed and/or suggested as recommended reading contain extremely graphic depictions of violence, brutality, sexual situations, profanity and blasphemy. These issues are neither displayed nor discussed at length in the text.

Don't let the bold, cartoonish cover of Father Power fool you---it conveys Todd Wilson's signature up-beat, humorous style and the truly superhuman nature of a father's influence, but not the urgency or significance of his message. As always, Todd is engaging and encouraging the whole way through as he speaks to fathers as a fellow dad down in the trenches, ever "reminding dads of what's most important" and doing everything he can to help them choose it and live it. Lots of anecdotes and illustrations make reading and understanding easy and Todd's wit and cartoons keep a weighty topic from becoming too heavy. Application questions help you assess your current position and think about your choices and their consequences---you'll be able to evaluate where you stand and where you want to be so you can make changes now to avoid regrets later. God has given every dad a powerful influence in the lives of his wife and children and it can be used for good or bad, but it cannot be relinquished. Dad, don't squander your gift or the limited time you're given with your loved ones---choose to use your Father Power for good before it's too late.

Today, many stories that transcend social, racial and cultural barriers do so because they contain spiritual truth for which all people have a God-given hunger. Accordingly, these Bible studies can not only provide a time of good fellowship, but also equip the church with ways to reach the world beyond. Superman is not Jesus Christ. But he is a Christ Figure, a figure resembling Christ—as we all shoud be. This study reveals the striking parallels between Jesus Christ and Superman, applies those points to our personal lives and equips us to reach those who are attracted to a Superman but don't know their true Savior is The Super Man, Jesus Christ. The video leader pack is sold separately: WW800360.
