  1. How might a Christian use a film like Li of Pi to lead a non-Christian friend into a conversation about Jesus and the gospel?

The Family Corner

Life of Pi is rated PG for emotional thematic content throughout, and some scary action sequences and peril. Teaching his young son a lesson, Pi's father forces him to watch a tiger kill a goat, but we only hear the noise and see the tiger dragging the dead animal away. The film implies that many people die, including Pi's family, when a ship sinks. On several occasions, Pi almost dies while fighting to survive out on the ocean. Though not graphic, we see some of the zoo animals kill one another. The central theme of the story is religious plurality; the story insists that all religions are equal and right and, thus, lead to God.

Ferguson may be about race, but it is also about violence. And we should have something to say about both.
