Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
A drama about a boxing coach struggling to maintain his faith in a God who does not seem to answer his prayers, and a young woman who boxes as a way of overcoming her wounded past.
Million Dollar Baby tells the dark, despairing tale of a boxing coach s struggle with faith. When he pours his heart into the personal struggle of a young female boxer, tragedy strikes, and he is put to the test: to do what his priest suggests, or to take matters into his own hands.
This study will look at the movie s themes of finding meaning through our talents, facing bitter trials, and learning what it means to love others.
