Jeffrey Overstreet calls upon a decade of experience as a film journalist for publications like "Christianity Today", "Image", "Books & Culture", "Paste" Magazine, Seattle Pacific University's "Response" magazine, "The Other Journal", and his popular website, lookingcloser.org. He frequently lectures at Seattle Pacific University and Seattle area churches; frequently reviews films on radio talk shows in Seattle and Wisconsin; and participated in a panel discussion on Christians and culture with writer Dick Staub, novelist Jeff Berryman, and actor Grant Goodeve for CITA (Christians in the Theatre Arts). In September 2005, Jeffrey was featured as "Image" journal's Artist of the Month. His film reviews were recently celebrated in a cover story in The Seattle Times' "Sunday" magazine, Pacific Northwest. "TIME" Magazine quoted him in an article about the new surge of Christian engagement with film and popular culture. He is part of a select writers' group called The Milton Center Fellowship and serves as director of an association of Christian film critics. This is his first book.
