Star Wars is one of the most beloved movie series of all time, and in this book John McDowell explores the many ethical, philosophical and spiritual themes that weave their way through the six films. From the Force to the dark side, the issues portrayed in the films have a moral and spiritual complexity that can help us better understand our place in the world and our relation to others, and even to God. Following comments made by the Star Wars saga's creator George Lucas, McDowell argues that Lucas did not intend for his films to be mere entertainment. Rather, he hoped his films would be used as a vehicle for moral education
Whether discussing the Force of Good or the tragedy of Anakin Skywalker, McDowell brings a fan's enthusiasm and a theologian's wisdom to this engaging book.
