MEDIA ADVISORY, Feb. 23 /Christian Newswire/ -- Upon To Kill a Mockingbird's 50th Anniversary, The Mockingbird Parables explores the characters and spiritual themes of America's most popular novel.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and maybe the most popular American novel of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has won a Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than 40 languages and sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. Quite a history. And, if possible after that staggering list of accolades, the classic may be more relevant than ever before.

Releasing in May, The Mockingbird Parables will reveal why -- by examining the gospel through the lens of "America's novel," and exploring what its characters and themes can teach Christians who have become increasingly isolated and disengaged.

Story opportunities/headlines/questions/topics:

• What Boo Radley teaches us about God

• What To Kill a Mockingbird can teach us about living as a community ... and about loving our neighbors (locally and globally). And, is this something the society and/or the church, has forgotten?

• As we approach Father's Day, what can one of the great literary fathers of all time, Atticus Finch, teach us?

• Mockingbird was set against the backdrop of the Great Depression. As we ride out the Great Recession, what does the novel teach us about debt, giving, contentment, materialism and finances?

Others include:

• What do we learn about social justice, race and compassion from the character of Tom Robinson?

• What is our responsibility to care for creation?

• What does true courage look like?

• What was/is a woman's role in the church? And, will society ever regale a woman for her strength, as opposed to her appearance? What we learn from the character of Scout Finch

• Parenting, political & religious "correctness", communication and faith, among others
