Rating: 3.0 – a simple way to explain different ways Christians tend to fall away
Opinion: This was an entertaining book. Matt found a simple way to explain some of the ways Christians tend to drift, or tend to fall into categories of thinking. I liked the idea of using monsters and fantasy to explain parts of Christianity. It’s a way to explain to people outside of Christianity that Christians get caught up in different ideas, too. Matt uses fantasy and sci-fi and humor to help explain some difficult things about Christianity. It’s an easy read and a fun book. I enjoyed it and its simplicity. It’s a fun read that uses humor and fantasy to explain Christianity. Though the ideas are simply put, the point is still there. I enjoyed this book immensely. I highly recommend this book to those who want an easy read that combines Christian fiction with fantasy.
