[Book Review: CHRISTIAN ZOMBIE KILLERS HANDBOOK by Jeff Kinley]
The thing I can’t wait to say about this book: it rocked my socks off!
When I was choosing a book to get from BookSneeze, I had several options and rating-wise, CZKH was not the top choice. However, for some reason, when I had another book option open and was about to click “Request,” I suddenly changed my mind and clicked on Christian Zombie Killers Handbook. I guess I am attracted to oddly-named theology books (the other theology book that I love is written by a guy with a great last name of Stoner and it’s called God Who Smokes.)
I didn’t regret the choice – even considering that I am not into zombies and used to consider them only as an annoying topic of mass hysteria.
But, back to the book.
There are two “plots” – one fictional story and the other one – the non-fictional meat for the mind (forgive me the pun on zombie food). The fiction part deals with a story of one family who had to deal with walking dead in different situations. The non-fiction reminded me of the letter to Romans Paul wrote. Using the language that is understandable for the people of our age, Jeff Kinley discusses sin, sinful nature of the man (and woman), and grace. I was blown away by this book! I don’t think I’ve ever highlighted so many quotes in my iPod (except Harry Potter, but that’s a different story).
The best part about it – it was theologically sound – and not one of the “touchy-feely” stuff the only aim of which is to make you feel good. It’s the real deal.
All in all, I highly recommend this book to those who want to understand the sinful nature and how it affects our lives… and how to overcome it.
