The Christian Zombie Killer’s Handbook
THE CHRISTIAN ZOMBIE KILLER’S HANDBOOK Slaying the Living Dead Within
BY: Jeff Kinley
I finished this interesting book today, and coincidentally today is the launch date for its release to the public at large. What a great read! This book is presented in both a fictional and nonfictional format. First, you read an Episode of the fictional (complete with blood and terror) zombie survival story. Next, you read a Chapter of nonfictional biblical commentary from the author about how the zombie parallels our spiritual state apart from God…how our fallen nature makes us spiritually ” the living dead.” It further explores the spiritual battle we face daily to deal with the zombie that wants to reanimate inside of us. How hard it is for some of us to see our sinful state as a really detestable, horrible, and revolting condition. It is in this context, that the biblical concepts about our struggle with sin are explained uniquely and logically through the zombie analogy.
In all honesty, I am NOT a fan of zombie stories, movies, etc. I was very skeptical when I decided to review this book because I thought it might be a shallow presentation geared toward teenagers as just a fictional entertainment novel. Well, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the content had an intriguing fictional story line as well as an in-depth explanation of important biblical concepts and practical application to understanding and living the Christian life successfully. I enjoyed the book more than I thought I would, and I would highly recommend it to those who need to understand the spiritual battle we face daily as a Christian. The Zombie theme is a perfect analogy of our spiritual condition, and sadly, the Christian who would not even consider reading this book because it is about zombies, is probably the Christian who would most benefit from the concepts explored in this unconventional analogy.
I was provided this book for free by BookSneeze.com in exchange for providing an unbiased and honest review of the content.
