Dr. Frank Turek returns on The Dr. Jeff Show to discuss how the most popular movie characters reflect the biblical narrative in his intriguing new book Hollywood Heroes: How Your Favorite Movies Reveal God.
Did you know that the character of Harry Potter is actually a Christ figure? Or that Tony Stark in “Iron Man” models the biblical message to guard your heart as opposed of follow your heart like our culture constantly preaches?
Like Dr. Jeff, you may be surprised just how many of these popular movies point to the ultimate hero, Jesus of Nazareth, and just how many actually reveal a biblical worldview.
As Dr. Jeff points out, “There’s a lot of material there that parents can use to open up conversations with their kids.” “Without getting preachy,” Dr. Turek adds.
The Dr. Jeff Show, hosted by Dr. Jeff Myers, President of Summit Ministries, is an inspiring and thought-provoking weekly show that features in-depth stories from celebrities, scientists, educators, and other cultural leaders about pursuing God’s truth in our everyday lives, all while living in a world filled with lies and confusion. http://liftable.tv/s/cf520
