Bandersnatch is really for those Christians who have had it with dry traditions and desire a real relationship with their Creator.
Bandersnatch does not follow a linear pattern like a “normal” Christian self help book.
Erika Morrison’s book is more than that.
It is abstract.
For example, she provides a working theme and definition for Bandernsnatch(she makes it a verb):
“I’m inviting you to Bandersnbatch- that is, to acknowledge and embrace the unconventional habits and attitudes that are your birthright…”(xii)
And throughout the book, Erika shares a part of herself with us. She lets us in on that moment when she was a part of the charismatic church and could not speak in tongues but the Holy Spirit gave her another, important creative gift.
Or her thoughts about God that causes you to rethink how and why we worship because “all life is precious- God spoke it into existence.”(155).
Erika does not offer ten steps to worshiping God in some supreme way or even offer up a ten point guide as to why we should all Bandersnatch. The book is not written in “order” and so you can literally pick a chapter and start reading.
She asks short questions so you can gauge your understanding of the text and your relationship to God.
