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 could use that Lot Caster they’re advertising. There’s been a lot of tough decisions to make lately.

    Billy Graham did write an end-times book called Approaching Hoofbeats. But I don’t think it was a novel, so of course it can’t be taken seriously …

    I’ve been following Jack Thompson’s “antics” for a while, through the Penny Arcade webcomic. This guy is not deserving of any attention. He is dishonest, uninformed, and his tactics do nothing to further his causes, but only further his infamy. I hope Bono just politely ignores him.

    Wow. What I found even more interesting than the letter were the comments after the letter. Very telling.
