The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook: Slaying the Living Dead Within

"Fear no zombies. Wear long socks. Kill no albatrosses."--My Lit Theory Professor

This week, my college campus has been overrun with zombies. And people swinging moonkey-faced flails made of socks or Nerf swords. In other words, we have a Humans vs Zombie Game here. A perfect setting to read this book.
This book consists of two stories: a fictional zombie narrative and a nonfiction
guide to 'overcoming the zombie within.' The vivid image of a zombie is used to illustrate the sin nature we all struggle with. While this interweaving structure is difficult to follow at times, I think it's very helpful, especially to people who aren't used to theological books.

In accordance with Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255, I am disclosing that I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My opinions are my own, and I am not required to write a positive review.


  1. I so totally do not get the whole zombie craze thing going on today (it ranks right up there with the vampire craze, in my opinion), but this book sounds like it might be interesting.

  2. I don't, either, Mary :D My brother loves playing 'shoot the hordes of zombies who never stop coming until all your ammunition and health packs are gone' video games (otherwise known as Zombie Survival games). He even makes them! The only difference between the zombie and vampire craze is that the vampires tend to be good nowadays, while the zombies are always evil... I think. So that's good; I guess I'd pick evil zombies over good vampires any day, but I'd rather have neither.

  3. "The living dead within" -- yep, that just about sums up the sin nature, doesn't it?
