"An exegesis on Star Wars at its finest! Caleb has managed to cleverly bridge the dichotomy between sacred, sci-fi, faith and force. This book will bring revelation to you as you explore Jesus principles through Jedi perspectives. May His Spirit be with you!"

I appreciated that Grimes saw the connection with the Holy Spirit and reinforces it in several places throughout the book. Here's a sample from Entry 69: "Qui-Gon teaches Obi-Wan to learn that to understand a situation he must not ignore the living Force. For us, this is like learning to discern a direction in which the Holy Spirit might be leading us, or how we receive council from God.Read more ›
I think this would be an excellent book for all ages, but would really help with teenagers as a way to reach out to them and share Christ with them!
All Star Wars fans should read this book! Well, done Mr. Grimes!
Analytical Review: This is a well-written and very well-organized book. If you want a particular commentary on any aspect of the Star Wars films, the chronological order of the book makes that very easy to access. It is not a "preachy" book, it does not intend to convert the reader to Christianity, merely to illustrate the bold similarities that the Star Wars films have with Christianity. It is respectfully enthusiastic about Christianity and Stars Wars. Themes of Toaism, and Buddhism take a very small role in the book, but overall it is well done, and readable. Recommended for Star Wars fans or those interested in science fiction and religion.
Those interested in a more academically challenging book should read John McDowell's work - it is more nuanced in some ways, but not as well organized or easy to read as this book.
Obviously, this will get you thinking about the movies.Read more ›
