One of the world’s most famous spiders is back on the big screen May 2! The excitement of the anticipated The Amazing Spider-Man 2™ movie has many Marvel comic fans eagerly waiting and my family is no exception! We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man, but in The Amazing Spider-Man 2™, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
Do you have a young child that might find the web slinging Spiderman to be the BEST superhero EVER! If so, I think you’ll be just as THRILLED with the faith based Family Discussion Guide as I am. The discussion guide (located at bottom of this blog post) for The Amazing Spider-Man 2™ is a great resource for families to discuss a range of important themes that include the relationship between personal choices and destiny, living a life that counts, sacrificing yourself in service to others, and the nature of power. This guide will help parents start (or continue) conversations with their children that will inspire them to think outside themselves and challenge them to live lives that matter. The conversations that will result from using this guide will reveal that even the most explosive summer blockbuster can leave lasting, positive impacts on its young viewers.
I do not know about you but I am beyond excited that I can take something from mainstream society and turn it into a teaching tool about biblical values. In preparation for the new movie release, I spent some time with my youngest discussing the bible verses that are used in the discussion guide. My favorite discussion so far as come from the first bible verse, Matthew 6:24. “No one can serve two masters…” Although I assumed my son understood this verse, I quickly discovered that he feels superheroes are indispensable. We had a good discussion about what it means to worship comic heroes versus our Creator. I am actually looking forward to watching The Amazing Spider-Man 2™ with my son and digging deeper into God’s word thanks to this discussion guide.
