Matt Mikalatos is at it again. In Night of the Living Dead Christian: One Man’s Ferociously Funny Quest to Discover what it means to be truly Transformed,” Mikalatos looks at members of the church through monster-movie glasses. There are the zombies, those people who would rather blindly follow someone’s teachings and theological beliefs than do the research themselves, the vampires are those people who selfishly continue to take from others but refuse to look at themselves and the werewolves are those who have a beast living inside of them that they can’t quite tame.
The story is narrated by Mikalatos but tells the story of Luther Ann Martin (Luther had a Lutheran upbringing, can you tell?) a werewolf who is trying, without success, to get rid of the beast inside of him. He teams up with Mikalatos, a mad scientist, and an android to find the solution. There are portions of this story that will leaving you laughing and, even more importantly, there are parts that will have you taking a good look at yourself and thinking about whether or not you are in that category of Christianity.
