Today I’m going to take a minute and spread some love to my other CSFF (Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy) bloggers. This is the first of a three-day tour (wait…there has to be a joke in there somewhere in reference to Gilligan’s Island). Anyways…a blog tour is starting today for Night of the Living Dead Christian by Matt Mikalatos.
I have so many things on my plate this month that I opted not to review the book, but I’d like to call attention to those who have. The bloggers below have committed to participate at least once within the next three days, so if you click through and don’t find a post on the book yet, try again in the next day or two.

Here’s the official blurb for the book:
What does a transformed life actually look like?
In his follow-up to the critically acclaimed Imaginary Jesus, Matt Mikalatos tackles this question in an entertaining and thought-provoking way—with MONSTERS!!! While Christians claim to experience Christ’s resurrection power, we sometimes act like werewolves who can’t control our base desires. Or zombies, experiencing a resurrection that is 90 percent shambling death and 10 percent life. Or vampires, satiating ourselves at the expense of others. But through it all we long to stop being monsters and become truly human—the way Christ intended. We just can’t seem to figure out how.
Night of the Living Dead Christian is the story of Luther, a werewolf on the run, whose inner beast has driven him dangerously close to losing everything that matters. Desperate to conquer his dark side, Luther joins forces with Matt to find someone who can help. Yet their time is running out. A powerful and mysterious man is on their trail, determined to kill the wolf at all costs . . .
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Night of the Living Dead Christian is a spiritual allegory that boldly explores the monstrous underpinnings of our nature and tackles head-on the question of how we can ever hope to become truly transformed.
