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’m DYING to see There Will Be Blood… and the only reason I haven’t is that I’m in the Midwest now and it won’t be playing here until mid January or something… So I’ll have to wait and see it when I return to L.A. :(
    Anyway, I loved your review on CT! The best film since “The New World” sounds right up my alley!
    And I’m glad to see Zodiac getting some props from critics! I wrote my top ten list this week (to be published on my blog and Relevant next week) and Zodiac is in the top 5. Indeed, what a landmark year for American auteurs.

    But the burning question still remains: it is your pick? I hope I get to see it. A print better float around a theater near me.
