This group study guide explores the wider themes portrayed in the Birches DVD which is a poignant story of love, loss and finding faith again.
In the film Birches, David finds it hard to handle the death of his wife Jessica. At a reunion with old friends, David discovers that he is not the only one struggling with ghosts from the past, and together they look for a way to make the future shine again.
Adrian and Bridget Plass have designed this study guide to enable a safe place for people to discuss the wider issues that arise from watching Birches. Each of the fifteen sections includes a relevant Bible passage, a comment on issues arising from characters and situations occurring in the film, a handful of questions to stimulate discussion, and in some cases, quotations or poems that are relevant to that theme.
Bonus material on the DVD presented by Adrian Plass introduces the key themes and questions to help leaders facilitate the group study.
