"Can kids actually find spiritual truths in comicbooks and superhero movies?"
Yes, they can
For more than 75 years of comic book history and gigantic cinematic releases, generations of kids have found excitement and inspiration from superheroes. Young fans of this good vs. evil world will love The Superheroes Devotional for Kids--featuring 60 exciting, challenging, and encouraging readings written especially for readers ages 8-12.
With devotions drawn from dozens of favorite superheroes from both the Marvel and DC Comics universes--well-known names like Captain America and Wonder Woman and lesser-known heroes like Shazam and Gambit--each reading includes spiritual lessons relating superheroes to the heroes of the Bible in themes like faith, hope, courage, pride, and power. Whether it's the self-sacrifice and humility of Captain America and the Hulk's struggles with anger or the parallels between Superman and Jesus or between Black Widow and a ruthless Bible heroine, your favorite heroes and heroines (and even villains) have much to teach.
Boys and girls alike will also enjoy points of interest like the history and background of each superhero, shared by author and lifelong fan Ed Strauss.
Read on, True Believer, and may you draw inspiration and encouragement from the characters and stories that you know and love from comicbook pages and big screen movies alike.
