The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook By Jeff Kinley

The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook is a two part book; it is both fiction and non fiction intertwined.  Its premise is that deep within all of us, we inherited sin DNA from the time that Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden.  This sin DNA is akin to a Zombie, that we are dead within ourselves.  Kinley goes on to explore this notion, and brings to light what Jesus did on the cross to free us from our inner Zombie.  

Enters Ben Foreman; the fiction component of the book.  Living in a time when a virus, Z-38 is sweeping the nation, turning people into Zombies, he is forced to battle the undead.  A little thrilling, a little gory, and honestly, a little weak in the storyline and ending.

Another component of the book was the fascinating history of "Zombies."  I was really unaware of some of the real events that have occurred in our world.  Whether you believe it or not, interesting.

The thing that really makes this book great is the teaching.  Sometimes it is easy for us to think, "I'm a good person, I'm a moral person."  This book gets into the nitty-gritty why we need Jesus so much.  And it doesn't drag us down into despair either.  It is a thoughtful, authentic look at sin, and then we are brought into the light, into the promise of Jesus and what he did for us and how we can be free.

 Kinley has taken a present day, worldly fascination and somehow made a biblical teaching on it.  I am still unsure of what I really think of this book, because honestly, I have never read anything like it.  Cheers to Kinley for thinking outside the box.
