For all you comic book lovers and superhero fans, this post is definitely for you! The Amazing Spider-Man 2™ is due to be released in theaters on May 2, and today I am very excited to share a fantastic giveaway with all of you to celebrate the release of the film. In case you have not had the opportunity to do so yet, please check out more information and the movie’s trailer below.
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.
The Family Discussion Guide
My family was recently given the opportunity to preview a Family Discussion Guide created to go along with the new movie. The discussion guide 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 feel that this discussion guide is an excellent tool to get children thinking about various themes in the movie, and how they can relate them to their own lives. Each discussion topic begins with a Scripture reference, then a scenario from the movie is presented in its relation to the given topic. This is followed by a short series of thought-provoking questions that are meant to lead in to deeper discussion and personal reflection. I think that this guide will help students to closely examine their own personal values, judgement, and character. It is definitely a resource that can benefit the whole family.
I am so happy to offer my wonderful readers the chance to win a prize pack full of Spider-Man goodies. Please click the link below to go to the giveaway form to enter for your chance to win. Contest ends Monday, April 28th!
