Still Standing continues the tradition of DLT’s popular movie-based Lent course series for small groups. Rachel Mann, author of the bestselling course From Now On (The Greatest Showman) has written this stunning new course based on the Oscar - and BAFTA - nominated Elton John biopic Rocketman. In five weekly sessions, she uses clips from the film, Bible passages and discussion-starters to help us relate the movie to the scriptures and the Gospel. Themes include: Becoming and calling. Relationships and how they shape our identities. The meaning of success and failure. Struggle, upset and forgiveness. Death and resurrection.

Rachel Mann is a parish priest, writer, speaker and broadcaster, with a particular interest in the relationship between popular culture and faith. Author of a number of popular books, she was formerly Poet-In-Residence at Manchester Cathedral. Her books include Fierce Imaginings, the Lent course From Now On, and the forthcoming novel The Gospel of Eve (October 2020).
