This five-week Bible study experience comes complete with discussion questions for each session, Scripture references, detailed character sketches, movie summary, and related commentary.  We will watch short video clips from the movie then discuss questions from the study guide as we dig deeper into the meaningful things in life.  The study guide is available in both Kindle and paperback formats from Amazon.
