Which interpretation of Star Wars will you buy?

Is this what a “culture war” looks like?

The Christian interpretation?

Or the Buddhist interpretation?

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    I tend to look forward to Wednesdays largely (well, besides meeting up with my youth group kids, of course *ahem*) for the Onion interviews.

    And although it wasn’t the best interview that either Sufjan or the Onion posited, it still made me smile.

    tee-hee.

    OK, I haven’t read ‘em, but I don’t plan on reading them either. Which, I think, is a waste. ‘Cuz I’ve felt like I always liked Staub. Am I just missing the boat here? Is Dick Staub able to transcend my worst fears about a “Christian” reading of Star Wars, or is this another weak attempt at a “The Gospel according to…”?
