Review quote

"At last--a devotional that speaks to geeks! Not only can I relate to this devotional, I'm moved and inspired." --ALEX J. CAVANAUGH, AMAZON BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF CASSASTAR

"Rich with cautionary tales, lofty ideals, and unexpected heroes, pop culture's stories teach 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." --ERIN STRAZA, MANAGING EDITOR OF CHRIST AND POP CULTURE AND AUTHOR OF COMFORT DETOX

"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." --PAUL H. BOGE, AUTHOR OF FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS

"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." --DREW DIXON, CHIEF CONTENT NERD AT LOVE THY NERD AND EDITOR OF EXPLORE THE BIBLE: STUDENTS

"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?" --JOSH LARSEN, EDITOR AND PODCAST HOST, THINK CHRISTIAN

"Faith is at its most vibrant when it's embodied in communities of imagination, and few people embody those qualities more than those within geek culture. Thy Geekdom Come brings this confluence together in a vibrant devotional resource for everyone. Blessed are the geeks!" --JAMIE ARPIN-RICCI, AUTHOR OF VULNERABLE FAITH

"This is a powerful work of Christian community. While the authors may not all technically live in the same neighbourhood, they occupy a very real social geography. Some authors wander down the familiar streets of movies, video games, and anime. Others prefer the back alleys and obscure corners of various geekdoms. Each find God already at work in these places. Brilliant!" --JARED SIEBERT, AUTHOR OF GUTSY: (MIS)ADVENTURES IN CANADIAN CHURCH PLANTING AND FOUNDER OF THE NEW LEAF NETWORK
