Publisher's Description

A moving adaptation of one of Shakespeare s great problem plays.


Masterfully adapted for film by Academy Award nominated director Michael Radford, The Merchant of Venice illustrates powerful Christian themes. The film highlights hypocrisy, reveals the consequences of judging by appearance, and emphasizes the difference between the law and mercy.

This discussion guide will enable you to delve deeply into these themes. Examining the film s characters and evaluating their behavior in light of Scripture yields a complex understanding of the human condition and a deeper appreciation for the truth. In turn, this truth should lead us to examine our own motives and conduct.
