From the back cover: What lessons may we learn from this galaxy far, far away and how do they relate to the beliefs we hold so near, near to our hearts?
Paul Kent’s The Real Force features forty action-packed, thoughtful, and inspiring devotions that skillfully reveal the deep Biblical ideals represented by the characters of the epic Star Wars saga. Each devotion discusses a scene or character from the Star Wars universe, relates it to a contemporary life challenge, and connects it with relevant scripture. From the iconic rise, fall, and redemption of Anakin Skywalker to the lesser-known struggles of minor characters like Major Derlin and Sabe, no stone is left unturned. No X-Wing is left unlifted. No chasm is left uncrossed.
As Master Yoda might say: “inside this book, the answers are. Read it, you must!”
You wouldn’t think it would work, taking quotes from the six Star Wars movies then combining them with scripture verses, but it does. Every day Mr. Kent has provided us with a quote from one of the movies and then he explains the scene from which the quote is taken. He then goes on to give us a Biblical view of the event and then concludes the devotional with a scripture verse. As a fan of the first trilogy I found this devotional fascinating. If you are any kind of fan of these movies I think you will be too. Here is the best part: if you are not a fan of these movies you will find this devotional interesting as well. It is not so much the quotes, though they are fun, it is the Biblical concept that Mr. Kent is trying to get across. I think this is a really clever way of making us think without being preachy. A devotional is always a great book to have and use and I think that everyone should have a copy of this one. I also think it would make a terrific gift for friends and family so that they could enjoy it as well.
