Barbara Mraz, a deacon in the Episcopal Church and a high school teacher, found a solution.This practical, hands-on book will help Christian educators, youth leaders, and anyone wishing to use films as teaching tools to explore and discuss a film within the usual 40-50 minutes available. Mraz provides an introduction, related Scripture passages, carefully selected film segments (with VCR counter numbers and DVD settings), and thought-provoking discussion questions for twelve movies that explore topics such as temptation, duty, forgiveness, redemption, gratitude, and other important Christian values. This proven technique one Mraz has been using for years requires a minimum of preparation and generates the maximum in participation. Industry film ratings are provided so leaders can pick appropriate films.
