I don’t think that I have ever read a book quite like Jeff Kinley’s: Christian Zombie Killers Handbook: Slaying the Living Dead Within. It is a strange book because it really wants to be two books inside one cover. Part of the book is a fictional narrative about how Zombies are trying to take over our world. The other book is about how our sinful nature is like having a Zombie inside of us.
I am a big fan of Christopher Moore’s irreverent stories about misfit angels and childhood friends of Jesus. Kinsley’s imagination is not up to Moore’s, and I found his preaching a bit over the top
The fictional story is pretty slow getting developed, and at times I really had to force myself to stick with it. And his theological understands are so out of touch with reality that those tended to turn me off.
Overall, the fiction story turned out to be decent. The preaching, or Biblical application if you will, was a bit much. If you are looking for a decent Zombie story and typical Evangelical Christian Biblical Application (seemed awfully Calvinistic) then this book is for you!
