Truth, Grace, Love and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2


It should come as no surprise that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is chock full of heavy and powerful themes ripe for discussion. As such, it should come as no surprise that our latest vodcast is chock full of Paul and I tackling some of those themes … but in a slightly (read: significantly) less heavy manner. Our conversation covers a lot of ground and is ready for your awesome brains to chew it up, digest it, and offer your own two cents. This is a conversation about The Hunger Games, after all.

So buckle up and dive into a fun chat where we talk Team Peeta vs. Team Gale, Greek food, truth, grace, love, Katniss and Peeta, and the Gospel of Luke. C. S. Lewis’ The Last Battle even makes an appearance. So you know it’s going to be as epic as the story we’re breaking down.

I think it would be cool for u to do a Christmas vodcast since it's so close to Christmas ( actually having vodcasts for any holiday when the holiday comes up would be cool) and I would like to hear a vodcast about the avengers... but I guess u might do that in May after Captain America Civil War comes out . Thanks for reading ;)

Agree with y'all completely!  Although Suzanne Collins's universe is a godless one, there are also many Christian virtues and parallels to be found there.  In fact, as someone who loves the books and films, I personally believe that Peeta is actually more heroic than the series' heroine.  He does the right thing repeatedly...only to suffer for it repeatedly.  While everyone else is losing there integrity in the war, he sticks to his guns as always and will not be moved.
