Book Review

I started reviewing books for Thomas Nelson. They send you a book for you to read and then post a review on your blog and public site.
My first book was: The Gospel According To Lost by Chris Seay.

It is a good little book. Nothing too deep or anything that would make you feel like you are reading a Sunday sermon. You just feel like you are sitting down with a good friend and talking about the TV series. Seay examines the characters and how they relate biblically. He goes through all the characters in one way or the other. Of course, Locke, Jack, Kate and Sawyer all have chapters dedicated to them.

Seay examines how all of these characters have done things that would make them unlovable. Ben Linus ranks right up there. But Seay shows us just how that doesn't matter to God, that he loves us anyway despite our flaws and the bad things we have done. Jack's need to control, John and his pain, Kate and the murder of her father and even Eko and his "Bible Stick" the book even tells you what all those verses are!

If you like Lost, this is a good little book for you. No need to worry about spoilers, because there are none in this book. Just a refresher course on the characters and how they relate to the Bible and God's love for us.
