‘Christ and the Chocolaterie’ is the original, innovative and lively Lent course based on the story and characters of the Oscar nominated ‘Chocolat’ from the bestselling novel by Joanne Harris.
Using the Oscar nominated movie ‘Chocolat’ as its starting point, Hilary Brand explores questions about God, the world, and what it means to be as truly human as God intended.
In five group sessions, ‘Christ and the Chocolaterie’ opens up the themes of the life changing opportunities that Lent presents to the Christian through a better understanding and application of the Bible:
• Giving up – the prelude to change.
• Giving out – the power of a gift to change.
• Getting wise – accepting the possibility of change.
• Getting real – the power of acceptance.
• Growing up – the process of real life change.
Each section refers to scenes from the film, questions to start discussion, practical exercises and meditations. Each weekly session leads into suggestions for individual reading, meditation and further Bible study.
As conclusion to Lent, Easter is celebrated with ideas for a chocolate feast and a chapter on its curious history. Not forgetting the need for life change on a global scale, Hilary Brand doesn’t shy away from revealing the unfair economics of the chocolate trade and its consequences.

Is there a DVD of the film Christ and the Chocolaterie included? or is it simply a paperback book? It seems to me it is a book with written extracts. Could you play the appropriate parts of a DVD film at the start of each session?
This title is just a copy of the book, and doesn't include a DVD film of Christ and the Chocolaterie. The book was inspired by the film Chocolat (2000) and is designed to make observations and comments on the films themes, rather than run alongside it directly like a traditional course material. As such there are parts of the film you could play relating to different sessions.
