It’s here! Check out the cover for our upcoming book of Christian devotionals, Thy Geekdom Come, Vol. 2: 42 Science Fiction-Inspired Devotionals. While Volume 1 was filled with a variety of geeky genres and topics, Volume 2 focuses on science fiction fandoms! The awesome art is by Paper Beats Rock (see more of his artwork here). We’re excited to get this geeky, faith-filled book into your hands in 2021—on March 42nd, to be precise.
Our Thy Geekdom Come series of devotionals goes deeper than the short, monthly reflections you might be familiar with from a book categorized as a “devotional.” They are meant to be sat with, slowly digested, and pondered over, and they don’t shy away from difficult questions, like how to reconcile faith with social justice, equality, science, and more. We geeks treasure the things we love and tend to engage, ponder, and digest our favourite stories over and over. We figure the same is true for our faith, so we put together a devotional that does exactly that.
The writers come from a variety of different faith backgrounds, including Baptist, Free Methodist, Mennonite, Catholic, Reformed, Non-Denominational, and others.
The devotionals are beta read by pastors and theologians to ensure biblical accuracy, and we provide context for scripture readings to encourage readers to understand not just what is being said, but why it is being said.
