Welcome to For Christ's Sake, Anakin! A podcast of Star Wars and Christianity in Dialogue.
Why did I start this podcast? Well there are lots of great Star Wars podcasts, and a good number of Christian theology podcasts, but very few are dedicated to interpreting the "great texts" of each community in light of the other. More importantly, I hope to help Star Wars fans and Christians understand each other better, engage with each other more deeply. This can be a difficult task given the many differences in culture, worldview and political priorities between genre fans and people of faith more generally. As such the relationship between these two communities is effectively non-existent, which is unfortunate given that both communities possess rich resources with which they can reflect on the human condition and our place in the universe. In a time of increasing social division and distrust, I want For Christ’s Sake, Anakin! to mine these rich resources, and to be a bridge—or at least a simple girder or truss in that bridge—between these communities and the people that inhabit
Thanks for listening, God bless, and May the Force be with You.
