The Fantastic 42! Vote for me!

Two friends of mine have written two Christian devotionals, and for the third they asked me to be a part of it.  42 is the series; the idea was taken from The Hitchhiker’s Guide the Galaxy.  Each book is a 42-day devotional focusing on things we get nerdy about, such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, comic book heroes, Kaiju, etc.

They asked me to write six of the entries.  For those of you who have been following my blog, you know that I love Lord of the Rings, board games, comic strips, and a few other nerdy type things.  One of my entries in the upcoming book focuses on Aragorn from LOTR.  To remind you, here are a couple of my blog entries on LOTR.

My goal in posting this is to let you know so you can perhaps prepare to support my friends in their endeavor.  Plan on buying the book on Amazon.  If you would like, you can vote for a subtitle.  The main title will be The Fantastic 42!  Each of the other books had a subtitle.  They were

42: Discovering Faith through Fandom

The New 42: God Terraforms All Things

My suggestion for the subtitle was Facing Doom with Hope.  Eric and Nathan tweaked it to be A Fellowship Facing Doom with Hope.  The Fantastic 42 is a paronomasia of The Fantastic Four.  Since Eric and Nathan have brought in five others to help for this individual book, we are now a superhero team, like The Fantastic Four.  One of the main nemeses of F4 is Doctor Doom.  So my thinking was to build on that tension and lead into a spiritual conversation that way.  You can vote for the subtitle at this link here:

The content of this book is 42 character studies that will each lead you to see some biblical truth.  The way of salvation and the person of Jesus Christ are very clearly presented in these entries.  The Orange Mailman has an entry on eschatology as well, comparing Ragnarök to the end of the age.  When it comes out, if you don’t want to purchase it, I can send it to you for free.

But do me a favor, and go vote!  I want my suggestion for the subtitle to win!

Have fun and stay busy – Luke 19:13
