While their is Christianity contained in the pages of this book, the text runs more like a literary analysis of Star Wars. I believe it may be too watered down for even the most liberal branches of the faith. Scripture is rarely cited compared with literary analysis and social analysis. It would seem world history is referenced more than the bible. While the author does seem knowledgeable on the topic of Star Wars, proving this knowledge seems to be his primary purpose.
I became worried about the contents of this book when the author spent the first two chapters justifying his ability to draw parallels between Star Wars and Christianity. With this build up and no follow through, the book can only be labeled a disappointment.
