Here’s your chance to win a free copy of ‘Night of the Living Dead Christian’, you’re welcome

*My very personal thoughts about Night of the Living Dead is that this book was devourable(is that a word?). Anyway, another fun thing I did with reading this book, was reflect on what kind of monster am I? Mikalatos was gracious enough to include a monster glossary to glean over. before reading more below, check out my review on examiner.com then come back for more.

Now, for the  monster list:

Gargantuan

Invisible People

Mad Scientist

Mummies

Robots(Androids, Cyborgs)

Sasquatches

Trolls

Vampires

Werewolves

Zombies

Some people can be a mixture of things, but me? It appears I fall on the spectrum of Sasquatch and Werewolf. Let me tell you why. Sasquatches, according to Mikalatos’ dictionary are “poorly suited for city life, sometimes we forget how to interact with others and have bitterness towards organizations including churches.

Werewolves are animalistic and have instinctive urges. So not only am I forgetful of how to communicate and am bitter(for good reason) towards organizations, I have animalistic urges(will not try to explain that one), so perhaps I need just a bit more Jesus.

Great book. Check out the video and other goodies below!

*Book received for my ubbiased review from Tyndale Publishers.

  1. Imaginary Jesus was great; it helped me figure out what Jesus’ I hold onto. Now if only I had something to tell me what kind of monster I am. Where could I find something like that…?

  2. This book looks hilarious. I can’t wait to read it myself. I’ve heard Matt speak at a conference before; he’s just such an entertaining dude.

  3. I’m an old guy (60) who really liked Matt’s first book “Imaginary Jesus”! I have known many “IJs” and still know a few. Matt’s “primer” helped me identify some of mine and see a few that belong to others. Another trite, but often true, Maxim is “Parting is such sweet sorrow!”. However, as I bid Adieu to “IJs”, it becomes both more sweet and less sorrowful. So there goes another universal truism! Thanks Matt!

    I didn’t think I knew any Vampires, Zombies, Robots, Werewolves or Mad Scientists until I began reading “NOTLDC”. As I read, the Zombies, etc . . in my life began to reveal themselves! While I don’t feel surrounded by Monstors, they’re certainly out there. I’ve heard it said, “You can’t tell the players without a program!” Matt’s books “IJ” & “NOTLDC” are the “program” for us to use in identifying the spirits (small “s”) and spooks in our lives. Both provide extraordinary insight and help us pierce the fog that often rolls in when Christians become fixed and certain and stop thinking.

    I encourage all to incorporate Matt’s books as part of your “Triptik” (AAA) for your life journey! They will help you see more clearly and choose your paths with care.

  4. BTW, I particularly like the “freeze frame” still picture of Matt at the beginning of the video (above). Question, is this Matt’s Zombie imitation? Q2, will Matt be using this as the author’s “Headshot” on the back cover of his next book?

  5. I loved “Imaginary Jesus” so much. I have given it away, used it as the basis of devotionals for my small group, and had my prayer life sort of ruined by the image of “Magic 8 Ball Jesus.” I have no doubt “Night of the Living Dead Christian” will be equally enlightening. Sign me up!

  6. Good review on the examiner.. I read IJ when it was first published and loved it.. I’ve been looking forward to reading this as well but haven’t waded through the rest of my stack yet.

    If (even parts of) can be compared to Screwtape, then I’m sure I’ll enjoy it, as that’s one of my favorites..
