The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook

The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook
Vampires.....sorcerers.....zombies. Today's pop culture has been gravitating toward everything "monster". Yet, until recently, the horror genre has never been applied to works of Christian literature. Not one widely accepted, the problem arises with how to incorporate the living dead with theology. The Bible tells us that we either go to Heaven or to Hell....not that we walk around as creatures of the night. Despite the passionate plea of Bella Swan in the Twilight series, choosing to become eternal and to drink blood...albeit an effort to be good is still a choice for something other than an eternity with God. Is it possible for the horror genre to be effectively dealt with in Christian literature?

Jeff Kinley, president of Main Thing Ministries, effectively tackles this in his book, The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook: Slaying the Living Dead Within. In his book, he represents people who live in sin as zombies. In a world where sin is nonexistent, a virus strikes. As the virus spreads, it consumes people and turns them into zombies. Militaristic organizations are formed to fight them and people are armed, yet the virus continues to spread. The virus, of course, is a metaphor for sin. The Bible tells us that we die to ourselves and awaken to a new life in Christ when we accept him as our savior. Kinley's assumption; therefore, is that we are a walking dead...zombies...until we awaken to that life. If you are not a fan of horror, you might have a difficult time following the premises in the book. The book is meant to teach a new whose members have often never stepped foot into a church...biblical truths in a language they understand.

The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook is available from online retailers such as and is best suited for teenagers and young adults.
