On this episode of Finding Christ in Cinema, we get to sit down with the greatest botanist on Mars as we look for Christian themes in Ridley Scott’s THE MARTIAN. Does the Ares III crew really need to know that Mark Watney is still alive? Can Mark even save himself, or will it take someone other?

In Finding Christ In Cinema we dig deeper into the silver-screen classics of yesteryear as well as the box-office hits of today. We take a closer look at the stories they tell and see if we find the face of Jesus looking back. Together we explore the deeper meanings of these films; their plots and their twists; the characters and their choices; and see how we can relate them to the gospel of salvation and ultimately our Christian walk.
