Product Description

Your present world is not supposed to be this small. You were made for something much bigger, and, no, you don't have to be an astronaut, or even a Star Wars fan, to live it. Finding God in a Galaxy Far, Far Away isn't about space travel or even a movie but rather about rediscovering your sense of wonder, something adults have successfully squelched from their everyday lives. However, God never meant it to be that way! Timothy Jones, by way of an eye-opening study of the spiritual parallels found in the Star Wars saga, will make you a kid again. You'll be marveling at the mysterious, laughing anew at the coincidences of life, and remembering, above all, the Creator for which you were made.

    This review was written for Finding God in a Galaxy Far, Far Away.
    In Finding God in a Galaxy Far, Far Away, Timothy Paul Jones--a long time, avid fan of Star Wars--displays amazing insight into the world of the Star Wars characters and a deep admiration for this extremely influential saga. However, he does so without losing his personal Christian worldview. He is able to blend the two by comparing, matching, and sometimes contrasting specific quotations from the movies with direct quotes from numerous Christian apologists and scholars throughout the ages. Among others, he takes lines from G. K. Chesterton, author of Orthodoxy, from C.S. Lewis, author of Mere Christianity and The Chronicles of Narnia, from J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings, and from John Chrysostom, a fourth century Christian theologian. Jones points out that the same awe that is a fundamental element of the Star Wars films can also be found in the miraculous elements of the Christian faith. Like the initial Star Wars trilogy, Jones divides his book into three sections. He begins by examining the introspective awe of life, the universe, of the variations in creation, and of the constant struggle of good versus evil as depicted in Star Wars and in Christianity. He expands this eventually to include the awe of probing, reflecting on, and trying to define the great unknown, both metaphorically as space and religiously as God. Secondly, he provides plot summaries and an appendix of references for anyone who has not seen all of the Star Wars movies or who may have forgotten key aspects of each movie--since the films were released as episodes 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, and 3, out of sequence. Thirdly, he includes a study guide so fans of the movies or groups of Christians can use the book in a discussion group.

    This review was written for Finding God in a Galaxy Far, Far Away.
    On one hand, I'm not so much a Star Wars fan but on the other, well you could say I definitely am a Timothy Paul Jones fan. That is why I jumped at the opportunity to preview Finding God in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. When I read these musings of Dr. Jones, I find myself totally involved, standing alongside the characters as they live and learn and grow. I see and hear these men battling in the timeless tale of good vs. evil. I begin to understand how their struggles compare to those that I have every day. My eyes are truly opened to look for the coincidences that happen in my life, that really aren't "coincidences" at all. They are instead, an orchestration of events which God has allowed, all with the hopes that I will learn to look at life through His eyes with wonder, and love, and awe.I cant wait to share this book with Star Wars fans and struggling blue collar workers, and with High School students and white-haired saints. This book can appeal to so many different people really anyone who wonders why things happen the way they do.In Finding God in a Galaxy Far, Far Away has Dr. Jones answered the age-old question What is the meaning of life? You know, I think he just might have!
