This is a great book!

"Night of the Living Dead Christian: One Man's Ferociously Funny Quest to Discover What It Means to Be Truly Transformed."
Night of the Living Dead Christian: One Man's Ferociously Funny Quest to Discover What It Means to Be Truly Transformed

I loved this book! It was entertaining, yet theologically profound from beginning to end! This is not the kind of book I would normally pick up to read. However, I was positively impressed. Matt's writing style is a mix of watching 50's monster movie, with the imagery of C.S. Lewis, and loads of humor throughout. I found myself being pulled into the story line. I also enjoyed sharing humorous excerpts with my husband.

This is a book for both Christians and non-Christians alike. For non-Christians, this is a very entertaining way to learn the simpleness of the Gospel message, and that Jesus is the only one who can help us break the sin-cycle. The various types of monsters represent different facets of our sin nature. Even as Christians, we have different "monsters" that we allow to appear in us from time to time. The redeeming message for everyone is that Jesus is the only one who can help us overcome the "monster" within us...we just have to accept His forgiveness.

All in all, this book is a great example of entertaining storytelling, while folding in the gospel, at it's very best. There is an amazing example of Jesus and the ultimate sacrifice He made for each and every one of us. I would recommend this book to any teenager or adult, whether Christian or non-Christian.
