The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook: Slaying the Living Dead Within
by Jeff Kinley
Don’t let the cover and the title fool you. This has nothing to do with the night of the living dead. It is simply a masterpiece of writing skills, designed to reach a young audience caught up in the latest cultural phenomenon. Cutting edge and culturally relevant, The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook is a unique combination of fiction and non fiction. It delivers a fresh approach to sin, grace and salvation, exposing the raging beast in all of us and teaching us how to overcome life as a zombie.
Here are the authors words from the introduction.
“Zombies are real. And they are among us. We have a problem here. I do and you do too. It’s a dilemma found deep inside the darkest part of your heart. In a damp dungeon of your soul. In a corner of the human psyche where a ravenous beast dwells. This monster is sinister, deceptive, wicked and vile . . . beyond belief. It’s the part of you that loves to do what is wrong. It takes great pleasure in seeing life revolve around its huge ego. It thrives on satisfying it’s every desire. It is the ultimate narcissist. The poster child for self absorption. It walks a thin line between shallow insecurity and egotistical conceit. But the reality remains—there is a devil inside you. Lurking, lusting, longing to take control.
Despite what you want, you can’t just go kill it. There is no magic ministry formula, no special Christian recipes for disposing of it. You can’t simply delete it from your life or drag it out to the trash for someone to haul away. You can’t send Special Forces in after it. It is well hidden. Embedded. Stealthily concealed lest you catch it out in the open. It stalks you from within, ready in the tick of a heartbeat to pounce on you and devour you.
Deny it if you dare. Try and ignore it if you can. But this thing inside you is as real as the page you are presently reading. It exists for one reason—to haunt you. It loves to hurt you. It desires to rule over you. To master your every movement. It hates anything and everything that is pure and honorable about you. And more than anything it detests God.
The ancient evil is a monster, and when it is awakened a door to hell itself is opened, spewing forth a barrage of malevolence and sin. This monster is known by many names. The Flesh. The Sin Nature. The Old Man. Even the Heart. From an early age it introduces you to a word of self worship, a solar system in which every pursuit revolves in a ceaseless orbit around self.
This creature within you is a carnivorous being that despite all your efforts and church fueled formulas, will simply not die. It is your constant companion. Your Siamese twin, joined at the heart. The monster is YOU! Or at least a big part of you. Should you dare to find out where it lives it will require descending to the place where it dwells. But be forewarned, you must prepare yourself for sights, sounds and smells that will turn your stomach and repulse the senses. For as we shine the light of truth on it, it’s hideous appearance will gradually become evident. And the mirror’s reflection may be more than you can stand. Welcome to your own personal Planet Zombie.
