The Soul of Spider-Man: Unexpected Spiritual Insights Found in the Legendary Superhero Series follows a trend of authors using popular stories to illustrate biblical lessons. Taking their cue only from the films and not the comic books, Jeff Dunn and Adam Palmer trace Director Sam Raimi’s trilogy about the wall-crawling superhero, inserting biblical narratives where possible.
The wisdom of Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben and his catchphrase “With great power comes great responsibility” is driven home, as are lessons about love, fear, sin, bitterness and death. Since the awkwardness of Spider-Man alter-ego, Peter Parker, has resonated with young viewers, the authors have a wealth of material to mine.
Written for younger teens, The Soul of Spider-Man is divided into short chapters with simple terminology, and will provide a helpful resource for youth groups.
