[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!

No, seriously.

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.

  • Sounds like a great book!

    • It is awesome – check it out! 

      Did you get anything from BookSneeze to review yet?

      • Yup! Got a book called 1000 Days, about the life of Jesus. I was disappointed when I saw another book available later about an adoptive family, and especially since I didn’t realize who the author of the one I’m reading is (the son of a famous preacher who is rather distasteful). Oh well. =)

        • Well, that will stimulate you to read the first book, post review, and get that second one. It sure stimulates me to get my reading done 🙂

          Re: the author – I had those moments… I remember reading a book Jesus You Can’t Ignore by MacArthur… WOW… It made me feel as if I was reading a required boring textbook for school. And it was tough to get done with it but I had to because Ted Dekker’s Immanuel’s Veins were available for early review… 

          How’s the book otherwise? I looked at that one, but the name sounded too standard 😀 (The one I got now is called A Shot of Faith (to the Head)) 😀

          • Ha! You’re all about the weird titles. =) I’ll let you know when I get further – I’ve barely started at this point.

          • Yeah – I am the first one to say “Never judge the book by its movie…”…um… I mean, by the cover. And yet – I am the one who pays attention to the cover, the title, the very first sentence, and the very last sentence (those are my four criteria for choosing a book… unless I know the author.)
