CSFF Blog Tour: Night of the Living Dead Christian... Day One

It’s time for the CSFF Blog Tour again... This months tour is on a fun and unique book called, Night of the Living Dead Christian by Matt Mikalatos.

Here is the teaser for it:

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.

Night of the Living Dead Christian is the story of Luther, a werewolf on the run, whose inner beast has driven him dangerously close to losing everything that matters. Desperate to conquer his dark side, Luther joins forces with Matt to find someone who can help. Yet their time is running out. A powerful and mysterious man is on their trail, determined to kill the wolf at all costs . . .

By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Night of the Living Dead Christian is a spiritual allegory that boldly explores the monstrous underpinnings of our nature and tackles head-on the question of how we can ever hope to become truly transformed.

Tomorrow I will give you my personal review, but today I would like to lead you to a few other fellow blog tour reviews and talks on this book...

Jason Joyner has a great monster quiz going on in his post for today, go see what monster you are... and find out what one I am ;-)
