Our hosts Daniel Silver and Addie Mena discuss the original Star Wars trilogy — about similarities between the Jedi and real world monastic orders, how the Force (or “the Phos”) can shape our view of the universe as Christians, and about the clash between religion and technology in the Star Wars universe.
In this episode, Daniel Silver is joined by Gloria Purvis of Morning Glory, EWTN’s flagship radio show. They discuss the Marvel film Black Panther and the themes of family, gender, race, and redemption.
Daniel Silver and Addie Mena discuss their favorite show, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which wrestles with serious issues of morality and faith, and has both good and bad examples of how to write Christian characters.
In this first episode, Daniel Silver and Addie Mena start out by asking whether or not engagement in narratives can be a worthy Christian pursuit, even if a story isn’t written by a Christian author or contains overtly Christian themes.
