Hollywood Heroes – Frank and Zach Turek

Title: Hollywood Heroes

Authors: Frank and Zach Turek

Genre: Christian Living

Plot: Some movies today have similar stories. There are elements of faith and Jesus in those movies. Frank and Zach Turek talk about the elements of faith and Jesus in Captain America, Iron Man, Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Batman, and Wonder Woman. These stories show different aspects of faith and Jesus. There are also questions to think about after you’ve read the chapters.

Rating: 4.0 – interesting correlations between popular movies and Christianity

Opinion: This were interesting parallels between Christianity and some popular movies, comics, and books. I didn’t find them particularly deep connections but they were very clever and thought out. I like how the authors found ways to relate the movies to faith and Jesus. There are different characteristics that most of the main characters in those movies that can be related to Christianity. There were one or two chapters where I thought the authors might be stretching their connections a little but I could see where they were coming from. It’d be great for a short bible study series for nerdy people to see what others think. I enjoyed this quick read that combined two things I love. I recommend this book for nerdy Christians.
