Night of the Living Dead Christian

I am participating in a blogger give-away with Tyndale House Publishing. They have given me the following book to give away on my blog to one of my followers. Please leave a comment on this blog post to be entered to win.

Night of the Living Dead Christian

The author stars in this book as the "normal" neighbor with werewolves, vampires, zombies and other crazies all around him. He thinks his job is to save them and somehow help them become human again. But it's not working out quite as he had planned. And in all of his "saving" his family is feeling neglected.

I was asked to review this book for a contest. I'll be honest, I wouldn't have picked it out myself. I'm not a fantasy fan normally. But when I picked up this book I was pleasantly surprised. It's not your typical vampire/zombie type book. After all, it does say Christian at the end of the title.
The reading world seems to be in a frenzy for zombies, vampires and werewolves. The author took this obsession and turned it into something beautiful.

The allegory is well written and humorous. The plan of salvation is quite subtle at first, but begins to really shine through at the end. It doesn't end perfectly; because life isn't perfect.
It's definitely something I would recommend and I'm glad that despite my reservations I agreed to participate in the contest.

Check out the author video to learn more about this book.

I received this book free of charge from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

There have been times when I thought that MY neighbors were bad! I don't think I have had any that sound quite that bad :) It sounds pretty cute!
