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.

    Out of all I’ve read and heard on this terrible incident – from both Christian and non-Christian sources – you are the first person who has said we need to be praying for this man.

    Thank you.

    Very well-stated, Jeffrey. Amen!

    Actually, that second one was a rather on the nose exploration of Sean Hannity.

    I found the above at an atheist web site and at the huffington post. You should hear a lot of the interesting “insight” into this matter. Are we going to have an either/or back and forth on this?
