Dr. Russell Moore tackles an incredible topic and a current, cultural obsession with zombies, but he helps us view zombies or the walking dead through a gospel lens. Read below an excerpt from Dr. Moore’s helpful article of Why Zombies Matter:
“Zombies are horrifying not simply because they’re mean and aggressive. They are horrifying because they represent what ought to repulse us: the rotting decay of death. But they still walk. And, beyond that, they still crave. In their search for human brains, they are driven along by their appetites, though always under the sway of a slavemaster’s will.
