From Now On: A Lent Course on Hope and Redemption in The Greatest Showman [9780232533927]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A brilliant new Lent Course for 2019, based on the hugely popular film The Greatest Showman. The 2018 Golden Globe-nominated movie starring Hugh Jackman, about the founder and stars of the Barnum & Bailey Circus is ideal for Lenten study of Christian themes of hope, redemption and new life. The five-week course offers discussion points, biblical reflections and prayers based on short excerpts from the film. The themes are: (1) `A Million Dreams', exploring what liberation and hope might look like for an `outsider' in the world; (2) `Come Alive', exploring how the family of faith can bring hope and purpose; (3) `Rewrite the stars', asks what forms of resistance can be placed in the way of salvation; (4) `Never Enough', questions the temptations of false fulfilment that can lead us to betrayal; (5) `The Greatest Show', shows how redemption is found when we discover `the circus is our home'.
