- The Gospel according to Star Wars : faith, hope, and the force
McDowell, John C.
- Star Wars is one of the most beloved movie series of all time, and in this book the author explores the many spiritual themes that weave throughout the six films. From the Force to the dark side, there is a moral and spiritual complexity to the films that, if paid attention to, can help us better understand our place in the world and our relation to others and to God. George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, did not intend for his films to be mere entertainment, the author argues. Rather, he hoped his films would be used as a vehicle for moral education.
