    Description

    To most, the term "Christian horror" probably seems like an oxymoron. Nevertheless, there are very good arguments to be made that horror is an eminently biblical genre and that Christian artists should be at the forefront of reclaiming it. 

    In this work, novelist Mike Duran explores the Judeo-Christian roots of contemporary horror, the religious themes that frame much of the horror art, and how evangelical culture has come to distance itself from such a potentially rich and powerful medium.

    Duran looks at Christian artists and authors whose works employ the macabre and grotesque. From surrealist Hieronymus Bosch to Southern Gothicist Flannery O'Connor to the master of horror Stephen King, we can trace a distinctly biblical worldview that frames their visions of terror. 

    Along the way, Duran answers objections while developing an apologetic, not for a new sub-genre, but for a rethinking of the reasons that "Christian horror" has come to be viewed as such an oxymoron.

    Exorcising Christian Culture

    if you're looking for a solid read/listen into the history of Horror and how Horror and Christianity are connected, give this book a try.

    if you don't think Christians should be involved with, or consume, horror, I especially think you should check it out. just try and remember to keep an open mind.

    I'd say that, at it's heart, this book is a short study on the state of Christian culture, comparing and contrasting modern, "family friendly" Christianity with the Christianity that brought us The Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo's David, and yes even Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    A thought provoking read

    I really wasn’t sure what to think about this book at first, but now that I have listened to it I’m really impressed at how well the case was argued. It gave me a lot to think about and honestly I agree with him.

    Our culture has softened the gore and horror that is death, hell, and the eternal separation from God. We need to have the dark to even be able to recognize the light.

    This is a profound book and I’m so glad that I got it and read it.

    5 Stars.

    Short but powerful defense of a sadly obscure gere

    This may be a short read but it's packed with valuable information. If you are looking for a resource to help you present a case countering the popular narrative that Christians shouldn't be involved with any horror this book is a valuable reference and overview.

    Excellent explanations and views

    I was provided this review copy audiobook in exchange for an honest review and have voluntarily left this review.

    I found this an excellent and very interesting listen. As a fan of horror and several of the authors that were mentioned I was delighted with the views given. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a great number of things. Horror, history. religion.

    I found this five stars all around. Great listen!
