Westminster John Knox Press The Gospel According to Star Wars: Faith, Hope, and the Force

Star Wars is one of the most beloved movie series of all time, and in this book John McDowell explores the many spiritual themes that weave throughout the six films. From the Force to the dark side, there is a moral and spiritual complexity to the films that, if paid attention to, can help us better understand our place in the world and our relation to others and to God. George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, did not intend for his films to be mere entertainment, McDowell argues. Rather, he hoped his films would be used as a vehicle for moral education.

The Gospel According to Star Wars is written by a theologian and contains many cross references to scripture. It is thoroughly researched with references that include secular sources. This book is not a light read like sitting down to enjoy a novel. It is very thought provoking and as I have read each chapter I have seen a little bit of me in each character. Many snicker at the Sci-Fi genre as just being entertainment but this book shows with introspection we can learn in a different way. I would recommend this book to any one that wants to take a deeper look into the Star Wars saga.
