Item Description...
Overview
Written by award-winning radio personality Dick Staub, this compelling book is filled with anecdotes from the Star Wars films that serve as a launching pad into rediscovering authentic Christianity. Christian Wisdom of the Jedi Masters also contains quotes from revered "Jedi Christians" such as Thomas Merton, Teresa of Avila, the Apostle Paul, G. K. Chesterton, and other theologians, mystics, writers, and philosophers. The author sheds new light on the struggles and challenges of living faithfully in postmodern life and offers a reintroduction to what C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien called the "one true myth," Christianity

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This book is terrible  Feb 20, 2007
This is a self help book, not a book discussing Christian themes in the Star Wars movies. Do not buy this book. Instead, read your Bible and watch Star Wars. This is just an attempt to cash in one the popularity of Star Wars and peddle Christianity at the same time, neither of which I feel is done well.
 
For all aspiring Christians looking for a new kick.  Jul 27, 2006
Dick Staub does a FABULOUS job of tying in the old teachings of the Bible with the very popular Star Wars Saga! This is an amazing book and it is very insightful. If you are looking to change your life and be a better Christian, this book is for you!!!

This book is also great for people following Jediism who are Christian. I recommend with both thumbs up!

Just an eloquent writer gifted with the ability to reach out to both adults and youth! A MUST read!
 
Good and Bad   Apr 5, 2006
Dick Staub makes some very good points and conections to the training of a Jedi in the ways of the Force in Star Wars and the walk of a Christian following God in life today. However, he does misquote and misinterpret many quotes from the Star Wars movies, and I even found a misquotation from the Bible. He makes good points, but these details were distracting to me as I read. I am not yet finished and will leave more once I am done.

After finishing this book it occured to me that Dick Staub needs to take some time to do a couple of things. First he needs to re-read the Bible and get facts correct (He quoted Moses as saying something to Joshua, but Moses was dead at the time and God told it to Joshua). Second, he needs a simple commentary for the passages he misinterprets (He says David had Uriah killed to be the only one Bathsheba loved, He had Uriah killed to cover up his sin). Third he needs to re-watch the Star Wars movies and not bend the quotes of the characters to fit his book (He talks about Obi-Wan asking Yoda for help in Episode II and portrays the event differently than it happens, as well as bends Yoda's reaction to fit what he is trying to show). This book is not what I thought it was, and any Christian who is young in their walk should not read this.
 
This book does not stay on target !  Mar 3, 2006
The book seems to miss the mark. It just seems like he thought he could slap star wars and christianity on it to make a quick buck. Hey these 2 things have made tons of money in the past right? Ok not a good idea to put the 2 things together. Get dharma of star wars and leave this book on the dark side.
 
Great idea...wrong author  Jan 19, 2006
I was very excited when I came across this book. I am both a Christian AND a Star Wars nut. I began reading this book right away, and it started slow. I kept reading, hoping it would really dive into some good contrast. It never came. I'm sure this guy meant well, but he had a very shallow knowledge of the Star Wars films, and on the Christian side, everything felt like it was from a 5th grade Sunday school class. I want so badly for this book to be great, but it is not. I wish I would have written it.
