Art & Faith Conversations

Jan 12, 2018

We discuss the latest Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, and how heroism is portrayed throughout many of our popular films and stories. Guest, Ph.D. Chip Crane, joins us to discuss details about your favorite characters including Harry Potter, Bilbo Baggins, Aslan the lion, and Luke Skywalker.  We have a fun discussion about how our culture views heroism and how its changed over the centuries and evolved in literature and movies.

Chip teaches J.R.R. Tolkien, Medieval & Renaissance literature, and technical writing at the University of Maryland.  He is a Naval Academy grad where he also taught English during his active duty Navy career. Chip considers clear writing a product of clear thinking and sees helping people write—and think—more clearly as part of his life’s calling. You can contact Chip at
