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 examines 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 whats right, define identity, execute justice, spark revolution, and save lives.
Rawle enters the Gospel story to tell quite a different victory storyone obtained through humility, obedience to the cross, and an empty tomb. How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero?
The DVD contains six video segments of 10-12 minutes each, to go with the six book chapters. For use during the group sessions, these videos feature Matt Rawle teaching in his friendly, casual, and appealing style. All video sessions are closed captioned.
