    1. Our family started reading "Static Jedi" as a devotional. Eric Samuel Timm handles what could be a guilt-evoking, never-going-to-win subject (How do YOU spend your time? What are you INVESTING in?!) with humor and candid transparency. EST uses imagery that helps the us to understand what we are doing, sometimes without even meaning to do so. However this book doesn't leave the reader once the problem is identified. Static Jedi helps us to see what the issue is and how to tackle it. Each chapter [...]


    2. This book is one that I would encourage every Christian and non-Christian to read. It changes your perspective on how you are living your life. It points out the noise that you ingest every day without realizing it, teaches you how to master the noise by becoming a "Static Jedi," and helps you grow closer to God by giving Him the undivided attention He deserves. Eric Samuel Timm challenges you to overcome the noise in ways that will show you how much you truly love God and what he has done for y [...]


    3. Read this book if :you want to be pointed in a direction to grow the relationship with Jesus.you want some Biblical tangible directives to put faith andactice to work.you want to find a way to hear God's voice.


    4. My small group and I decided to read this together. It was just okay. Timm has some good points and ideas, but they are surrounded by distractions. There were quite a few long, drawn-out food metaphors, which got tiresome quickly. More seriously though, he kept making jokes about reading his book and buying his book so as to pretend to be self-promoting. But he did it so many times that I have to figure he actually WAS self-promoting. I guess the trouble was that we spent so much time picking ap [...]


    5. I originally gave this four stars, but after talking about this book with my friends and the light they shed on it, I feel the book deserves another star. It really is worth the read, there's a lot of good advice, just be careful not to turn the advice into a to-do list. These things can help us grow in our relationship with the Lord, but they do not make the relationship.I've got a full review here: Static Jedi by Eric Timm


    6. As a Star Wars fan, I'm a bit disappointed to see "Jedi" in the title but nowhere in the description. It makes me extremely curious how the author correlates the Jedi with his subject matter.


    7. I was disappointed by this book. I love the title, and the idea is good, but the style felt shallow, with too many flippant asides and personal reference to our author and his work.I did get a couple of useful teaching ideas but overall it's not a book is recommend or plan to reread.


    8. Good truths! Good challenges. He kind of rambles some, but he hits the topic well. Praying about what to apply from this book now.


    9. I'll start with what I didn't care for: As much as I love Star Wars, I felt the whole "Jedi" thing was on the cheesy side. And for a book dedicated to the mastery of the noise that bombards us from our phones, friends, Facebook feeds, and television sets, it sure is noisy. The book is riddled with ADD-induced breakfast food tangents, sidebars with Twitter posts (hashtagged #staticjedi), and metaphors that distract from the point. Maybe the Twitter sidebars were a twist of irony and Timm is punki [...]


    10. Level Presentation of Sincere Fellowship with God And CommunityI was attracted to this book by the Title, Star Wars-like (of which I have never seen). What greeted me was a warming book of sincerity in man's pursuit of God. Eric strikes a sound balance between grace and personal responsibility. We are disciplines, correct? Our journey leads to a decision, to a new birth in God through Jesus Christ. The decision needs to lead to a life of discipleship, of following our Master.Following means acti [...]


    11. Timm, who I have seen speak at a school assembly, does a good job of encouraging the youth-group age kids who are generally going to be reading this book to take their relationship with God seriously. There are some slight issues that I'd argue in the book, both with his expressed theology and praxis, but generally I enjoyed the read and was genuinely challenged by some of his conclusions. (Though, if you're over the age of, say, fifteen, the goofy prose style will probably irritate you.)A seven [...]


    12. My oppinion on this book, you will be surprised. Must read now (/sarcasm)So, for a book on how to be quiet, filter out distractions and noise- this book reads like click bait. Its filled with noise, and clutter. I was dissapointed in this, since I was expecting the excact opposite. Maybe if you are high on #hashtags and live for the @mentions this will be relevant for you, but for me, it was hard to see the content for all the hyped up stories with the obvious points. Reading this book may resul [...]


    13. I would have rated it 3.5 stars if half stars were available. It is a solid discipleship book that gets wordy and sidetracked from the topic at times. The positives do outweigh the negatives. There are some strong challenges and great ideas as it relates to one's personal time with God. I would recommend this to new converts and those who have never established spiritual disciplines in their life.


    14. Timm makes some good points and offers some excellent challenges. I imagine he would be a very appealing speaker for youth. His book however, could be summed up shortly: invest time wisely by making it a priority to spend time with God away from all distractions. One of my favorite statements in the book is "Discipleship means becoming like Jesus, not just filling our heads with knowledge, and it is not something we can do without dying to ourselves." p54


    15. Become a Jedi I love this book. It's about cutting through all of the noise (static) in our lives and becoming a true disciple (Jedi) of Christ. An awesome book for small groups.



    16. This book has a lot of thought provoking questions and outlines practical steps to take in your spiritual journey.
