In a new and updated version of this best-selling book, John McDowell explores the many spiritual themes that weave throughout the Star Wars films. From the Force to the dark side, the issues discussed in the films have a moral and spiritual complexity 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. This new version has been thoroughly revised to include discussion of The Force Awakens and other new developments in the Star Wars universe.

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, the issues discussed in the films have a moral and spiritual complexity 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.

What's Christian about Star Trek? Nothing. That's the way most people see it and that certainly seems to be the way the franchise is intended. There's no question that the Trek universe is based on a doggedly humanistic worldview and is set in a future time when religion has essentially vanished from Earth. If that's the case, how can there even be a Gospel According to Star Trek? In The Gospel According to Star Trek, you'll discover how the continuing voyages of Kirk and company aboard the Enterprise - from the Original Series to Star Trek Beyond - tell us more about our human quest for God than you ever imagined. You'll learn how Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's own spiritual quest informed the franchise, what he and the series really have to say about God and religion, and the amazing image of Christ contained in Star Trek's most popular character. You'll also see how Star Trek can help us recover a deeper, more fully human gospel that embraces our humanity instead of denigrating it and echoes the call of both Spock and Christ: 'Live long and prosper!' (John 10:10).

In 1977 a single film called Star Wars exploded on the consciousness of the world. Since then the franchise, created by George Lucas, has become a global entertainment corporation. The merchandise of the original trilogy was largely confined to toys and games, but those games have since become computerized, the toys more sophisticated, and Star Wars has moved into the multi-media environment of the twenty-first century in ways unimaginable in the long-ago world of 1977. Computer games and web sites, novels, animated television shows, as well as a new trilogy of films, have all placed Star Wars at the center of world popular culture. Finding the Force of the Star Wars Franchise brings together contributors who critically analyze the Star Wars universe from many perspectives. Topics include war, foreign policy, gender roles, spirituality and religion, toy play and adult collecting, creative fandom, race, special effects, and mythology.

We often hear about the inspirations for and impact of Star Wars, but most of the discussion tends to be vague, cursory--and ill-informed. STAR WARS IN CONTEXT aims to do better, explaining and in cases debunking what others tend to just assume. This second edition of the book, over twice the length of the original, not only updates the discussion but expands on it, covering such questions as: * How did George Lucas's earlier films (THX 1138, American Graffiti) lead to Star Wars? * In what ways did Akira Kurosawa's films, Joseph Campbell, Bruno Bettelheim, Carlos Castaneda and the James Bond movies actually influence the films' creation? * Where did the idea of the Force come from, and why does it seem so vague and slippery? (As it happens, Castaneda had a lot to do with it.) * Why did fans react so strongly against the prequels, and then become so much more accepting of them later? * What part did Star Wars actually play in creating the movie blockbuster and film market as we now know it? Going from Modernism to the globalization of the entertainment industry, from New Age mysticism to journalistic poptimism in its search for the answers, STAR WARS IN CONTEXT sets the record straight on all this, and much more.
