This past Sunday, great television returned to primetime. I, along with plenty others, watched the 2nd season premiere of The Walking Dead (I wrote about the first season here). The western world is taken up with Zombies, they are a pop culture phenom.
Over the next couple of days, I want to look at the topic "Why Zombies", especially in relation to the way Christians interact within the world. The quick version is that zombies provide a place for our culture to both recognize own our destructive nature while maintaining cooperation in what we see is a flawed society. Zombie fiction inhabits a true secular eschatology, and analyze destruction and human nature. For the church, we must understand how our story functions as an alternative timeline to the story of the world.
So stay tuned over the next week and lets think about zombies together. Till then, check out this post from the past.
