How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero?
What Makes a Hero? The Death-Defying Ministry of Jesus 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 Pop in Culture series, 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 what’s right, define identity, execute justice, spark revolution, and save lives.
Rawle enters the Gospel story to tell quite a different victory story—one obtained through humility, obedience to the cross, and an empty tomb. How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero?
In addition to the book, components for a six-session study include a Participant Book, a comprehensive Leader Guide, a Youth Study Book, a Children’s Leader Guide, a DVD featuring Matt Rawle, a Worship Resources Flash Drive (also available as a download), and a Leader Kit.
