    Story
    "A real priest combines science fiction with faith"
    If you could sum up Geekpriest in three words, what would they be?

    candid, funny, inspiring


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Geekpriest?

    His description of his time at the Luke Skywalker Ranch


    What about Roderick Vonhogen’s performance did you like?

    He narrates the book as if he is sitting there talking one-on-one with you and maintains his enthusiasm and honesty throughout. You never feel as if he is just reading his book back to you.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Adventures of a Dutch Jedi


    Any additional comments?

    Fr. Roderick intermixes tales of a childhood in Holland and his love of science fiction and Star Wars with a candid account of some of his struggles as well as triumphs in living out his vocation, all through the lens of a Catholic priest who is at heart a geek. He does a great job of bringing faith into the story without being the least bit preachy. He is funny, interesting and inspiring.
