About: Jeffrey Overstreet

JEFFREY OVERSTREET started lookingcloser.org in 1996. His first book, "Through a Screen Darkly," was published by Regal Books in 2007. His first novel, "Auralia's Colors," arrives in September '07. (You can order both at Amazon.) Jeffrey reads and writes full-time at Seattle Pacific University, reviews films for ChristianityTodayMovies.com. His perspectives are also published in magazines like Paste, Risen, Image, Relevant, Books & Culture, and SPU's Response. He speaks about the arts at SPU, in churches, and on radio talk shows around the U.S. His film reviews were celebrated in a front-page feature of The Seattle Times’ Sunday magazine (Pacific Northwest), and his work has been noted in TIME Magazine. Born into a family of educators, Jeffrey grew up in Christian education, from kindergarten through university, at Portland Christian Schools (Portland, OR) and Seattle Pacific. He and his wife Anne, a poet, can be found writing in the coffee shops of Shoreline, WA, or scolding their cats, Mardukas (4) and Sophie (18). Jeffrey is overwhelmed by God's generosity, and wants you to join the grand conversation about art and faith.
