Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
A dramatic story of hope lost and restored.
Woman, Thou Art Loosed introduces viewers to Michelle, a young woman whose anger at the sexual abuse and neglect she s suffered erupts in a horrible murder. As she shares her story with her mother s pastor, it becomes clear that behind the hardened woman is a deeply wounded young girl.
Use this study to explore the themes of this film. What is the nature of forgiveness? Is grace worth having if it s freely offered to all, no matter what their offense? How does hypocrisy affect the way people understand and respond to matters of faith? How does God see us, despite our sins? What is the role of a healthy church community in dealing with difficult issues?
