The Gospel According to Star Wars: Faith, Hope, and the Force
Star Wars is one of the most beloved movie series of all time, and in this book John McDowell 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, McDowell argues. Rather, he hoped his films would be used as a vehicle for moral education.

My brother is 30something struggling with life.He is not a Christian but "belevies in God".He is a lover of Star Wars and comic books.I have got him a Bible in the past but I am sure he doen't have it any more.I am always worried about his salvation and overal quiality of life.I was thinking this book or even The Action Bible would intrest him enough to just take a look at scripture.Any thoughts?
