The 2014 Oscars ceremony will take place on Sunday, March 2. The annual Academy Awards show sparks conversations on designer clothing and predictions of who will take home the golden statues. Of course, there is also discussion about the movies that are nominated. As with most Oscar- nominated films, there is a Christian perspective that one can apply when examining the characters we so often identify with and the plots that reach out to us at our very core.

In this free "In the News" study, " Getting Ready for the Oscars," Christians will get an overview of the spiritual themes and messages found in some of the year's top films. In particular, readers will take a closer look at Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, and Philomena. Discussion questions and suggested activities are provided and will guide participants to consider ways that the human experience illuminated in these films can be considered within the context of our Christian faith.
