That is what this book can help with. It is a pretty good book. If you are looking for something that has real deep and spiritual thoughts, you might be disappointed. This book is meant to be a starting point, something to encourage you to go deeper into the Bible. Even if you haven't read all the books, you can still understand the point behind each devotional. It is arranged in 30 readings, which means it can be used as a daily devotional.
However, it also has a topical table of contents so that you can move to a particular reading if you want. I received this book from BookCrash. This book takes readers through the Hunger Games trilogy and draws parallels between biblical truths and ideas Collins puts forth in her books. It has 30 days of readings that offer a verse, a commentary on an idea from the Hunger Games, how that relates to biblical truth, and then a one or two sentence summary on the following page. I loved the Hunger Game trilogy and couldn't wait to read this book!
Finding God in the Hunger Games
I just got the book this morning and have read through it entirely already. I enjoyed reliving the Hunger Games from a different perspective, especially one that caused me to look at the characters that I know so well in a different way. Now that I have read it through once, I look forward to going back through it one reading at a time to really meditate on the truths and apply them in every day life.
One of the ideas discussed in this book is the idea of unconditional love. Sarns uses the unconditional love that Peeta shows to Katniss to demonstrate the unconditional love that God shows to us. Even after Peeta was hijacked, his love for Katniss was strong enough to overcome the brainwashing. Some other themes Sarns identified were self-sacrifice, serving the poor, honesty, generosity, and forgiveness. One of the things I like the best about this book is that it would appeal to fans of the Hunger Games that don't necessarily believe in God, but teach them a little about his character and Jesus's sacrifice for us.
I can see where it could be an excellent outreach study for young believers to share with their friends. It isn't deeply philosophical with complex theology, it is a light discussion on how we can live our lives in ways that are pleasing to God. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has read the Hunger Games books and enjoyed them. If you liked the Hunger Games, you will love this book.

This is not really about Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games: Finding God in the Arena
He mentions lines and quote and even the occasional scene. But he says at the beginning of the thi Short Review: But he says at the beginning of the third section that he does not really think that God is in the Hunger Games. Primarily he is interacting with the movie and not the book. He says that he had not finished reading the book when he watched the movie. And he only mentioned watching the movie twice.

A full-time writer and speaker, Ken is the founder of Reflective Living, a nonprofit ministry devoted to helping people learn how to slow down and live more reflective lives so they can experience life more deeply, especially life with God and other people. He has four children and three grandchildren and lives near the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Monument, Colorado. As a bestselling author, Ken speaks primarily on the subjects in the books he has written.
He has spoken in the church service itself but has mostly done church retreats. He is available to speak for large, public events as the keynote speaker or for smaller, more private events, such as leadership retreats. In all of his talks, Ken uses a variety of audio-visuals, such as film clips, and so the host would need to have the necessary equipment and someone to operate it.
