More About the Author

Dr. Jamin Hübner is an American theologian, biblical scholar, philosopher and musician from South Dakota. He is a graduate of Dordt College (BA Theology), Reformed Theological Seminary (MA Religion) and the University of South Africa (ThD Systematic Theology), and a student at Southern New Hampshire University (MS Economics) and currently serves as the Director of Institutional Effectiveness and founding Chair of Christian Studies at John Witherspoon College. Most of his curious insight comes from being raised on his parents' farm.

Dr. Hübner is an accomplished percussionist, having won area set competitions, taught private lessons, toured Eastern Europe in concert band and the Pacific Northwest in big band, and performed with notable musicians such as David Gluck, Grant Manhart, David Burgess, and most recently with guitarist Charles Carey, in a local jazz ensemble.

Jamin's areas of interest include New Testament exegesis, libertarian theory and constitutional law, complexity theory and social organization, economics, and systematic theology (especially intersections with bibliology, postmodernism, science, and gender). Throughout his career, he has been an active member of numerous academic societies (ASA, CBE, ACE, AES, CETA, IAPCHE, SBL, AAR, ETS, ARL, etc.) and has published an array of monographs and peer-review articles. More significantly, Dr. Hübner is an avid member of the Black Hills Table Tennis Club, a card-carrying member of the Tenth Amendment Center, and, being a direct descendant of William Brewster, a member of the Mayflower Society.

Jamin's wife Jessica (BS Biology, MS Counseling) is a narrative-oriented family therapist with a background in wildlife biology. Together, they enjoy outdoor-life, reading, tea, trips to Boulder, and running their small businesses--a seasonable bed-and-breakfast and the Black Hills Photography Company ( They love God and their soft and cuddly rescue dogs, Shostakovich and ζωή.

Format: Paperback
I wasn't expecting much from this self-published book, but compared to other books of faith and film and apologetics, "Light Up the Darkness" was rather impressive. With over 200 citations and a substantial bibliography, I found it difficult to ignore the authors arguments about truth, knowledge, movies, and the world views of movies. Highly recommended!

I bought this to enhnce my teaching around I am legend for AS Film Studies Section C. Its not a bad book but the focues is on religion more than the film, it is probably an Religious Studies thesis. However, not being a christian i found it funny how all things related to the bible are taken for read and seen as fact whereas the film suuferred more consternation and are more debated. In short the bible is right and the film text is confused. I would read it if you use I am legend to compare with Omega Man or similar post aocalypse genre text but not expect more than you probably already thought or had identified. Praise to the author, clearly a lot of work went into producing it.
