Night of the Living Dead Christian~Book Review and Giveaway!


Zombies, vampires, a mad scientist, robot who prefers to be called an android, a werewolf, even a monster hunter!  These are the characters of Matt Mikalatos newest book Night of the Living Dead Christian.

From the book

What does a transformed life actually look like?
In his follow-up to the critically acclaimed Imaginary Jesus, Matt Mikalatos tackles this question in an entertaining and thought-provoking way—with MONSTERS!!! While Christians claim to experience Christ’s resurrection power, we sometimes act like werewolves who can’t control our base desires. Or zombies, experiencing a resurrection that is 90 percent shambling death and 10 percent life. Or vampires, satiating ourselves at the expense of others. But through it all we long to stop being monsters and become truly human—the way Christ intended. We just can’t seem to figure out how.


My thoughts

This fictionalized story is written from the point of view of Matt and his next door neighbors, who are the monsters. It is an allegory. It is funny and witty and will have you laughing out loud! Even with the laugh out loud aspect of this story it does cover the serious topic of truly becoming a transformed Christian. Each monster in the story is representative of how we as Christians tend to act. Are we truly transformed? Are we willing to give up everything for the Lord? Are we willing to really be transformed and live as Jesus has called us? Only God can truly destroy the monsters that live within us.

I'd love to read this book. I've seen it elsewhere, and it seems intriguing. I haven't read much in this kind of genre, so it would be a great place to start branching out!
