Diving Into the Theology of Star Wars

Diving into the Theology of Star Wars

If you’re like me, you enjoy a good, healthy, and robust discussion of theology every now and again.

Especially when said conversation means you get to break down what is, arguably, this generation’s most popular cultural myth: Star Wars.

As the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens looms large on the horizon, we’ve decided to dive deep into the chaotic mix that is the theology inside the Star Wars universe and unpack its implications for us as viewers.

(If theology isn’t necessarily your thing, don’t worry, there’s also a Stormtrooper rocking a double neck guitar.)
