Jesus Christ: God's Revelation to the World

Book Resources: Chapter 9: Super Jesus

 

Super Jesus

Film Focus Point: “Catholic Focus: Superheroes” TV coverage, in three parts, of how superheroes/comic book culture can connect to religion and the search for God. (Note: The first part is broken up into two 4-minute segments, but with the interview format, it would be easy to break up any of the three parts.)
