    3 12 starsI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewThis book starts with one premise the religion of the Jedi a fictional part of the very fictional universe of Star Wars is real or at least real enough that people will take it seriously and convert to Jedi ism I find this to be a very long stretch of the imagination however there are numbers to back up the author’s claim For instance in the 2001 census there were almost 400000 people that put down Jedi as their religion in the official census wikipedia link hereBecause of this the author has spent a considerable amount of time debunking why being a Jedi is a good true religion instead of Christianity If these almost 400000 people in the UK were actually serious about their choice of belief system I would say that the author had some pretty good points The author does an incredible job of defining the Jedi belief system and then comparing it to Christianity showing without a doubt that Christianity is the superior choice in religions At the end of it though I have yet to see anyone besides monks in monasteries wearing robes and I haven’t heard of anyone seriously wielding a light saber truly believing they are a Jedi of the Star Wars universe While the premise of the book is noble saving all those unsuspecting Jedi wannabe’s from the fiery pits of hell for following Yoda and Obi Wan I think the numbers of Jedi in our midst are an inflated reaction of thumbing their nose at the government’s inclusion of religion in the census than true followers of the Force

    I REALLY wanted to like this book I have been a fan albeit not a FAN of Star Wars since A New Hope first came out I had this book on my wish list and I got it for Christmas But it was not what I had hoped It proof texted Star Wars was way to conservative for my progressive theology and wound up simply an apologetic for a conservative evangelical outlook I do NOT think that the Jedi religion is a full religion worth following but I do think Star Wars was rather unfairly portrayed in this very one sided portrayal Im not sure that Christianity really came out all that well either sadly
