Going deeper with "Irrational Man"

Each Sunday in January, we're reflecting on a film's themes and Scripture, to see the God-thread in each, to discover how Christ completes its message(s).

In order to help us engage more, here are a few questions.  Feel free to use them in whichever context they’d be fruitful in: small group discussion, dinner table conversation, or non-Christian friendship.

"Irrational Man"

  1. Using the 'Receive-Reject-Redeem' framework, what strikes you as being redemptive about this film?
  2. Existentialism holds that you are free to define yourself and free from being defined.  In other words, life has the meaning you choose to give it.  List out some possible outcomes of living life this way.
  3. Read Luke 14:25-27.  Discuss the 'hardcore' commitment demanded by Jesus.  Could Christians learn something from Abe's 'hardcore' existentialism?
  4. At one point, referring to a dead philosopher, Abe says he was a Christian and "how comforting that would be".  Compared to other worldviews and philosophies, how is Christianity "comforting"?

 

Going deeper with "Goosebumps"

Each Sunday in January, we're reflecting on a film's themes and Scripture, to see the God-thread in each, to discover how Christ completes its message(s).

In order to help us engage more, here are a few questions.  Feel free to use them in whichever context they’d be fruitful in: small group discussion, dinner table conversation, or non-Christian friendship.

"Goosebumps"

  1. Using the Receive-Reject-Redeem framework, what is redemptive about this film?
  2. Does it change your perspective to know R.L. Stine wrote the "Goosebumps" books to capture his childhood fears?
  3. Read Genesis 27 and 32.  What do we learn about Jacob's character?  Why might it be important that Jacob is 'renamed' during the wrestle?
  4. How should Christians handle culturally-acceptable experiences like scary movies and Halloween?
