Reviews

"Rich with cautionary tales, lofty ideals, and unexpected heroes, pop culture's stories reach us in ways no lecture could. THY GEEKDOM COME examines some of the most powerful and beloved narratives of geek culture and connects them to God's redemption story. This devotional delights the heart, stimulates the imagination, and edifies the soul."
"At last—a devotional that speaks to geeks! Not only can I relate to this devotional, I'm moved and inspired."
"Thy Geekdom Come challenges our perspective to help us love God and those around us in a deeper way. It's a great read with wonderful insights."
"If we believe the redemption story found in the Bible is the greatest story ever told, we should expect to find echoes of it in pop culture. Thy Geekdom Come opens readers' eyes to how the geeky things they are already watching, reading, and playing relate to the good news Jesus came to announce."
"Brimming with enthusiasm for both Scripture and various corners of pop culture, Thy Geekdom Come offers encouraging, inventive ways to spend time with God's word. Who says morning devotions can't include a little Mass Effect and Miyazaki?"
