Could your favorite TV show be a Biblical study guide? Chris Seay of “The Gospel According to Lost” believes this is the case with the TV show “Lost”. Lost is a TV show that airs on ABC about a group of misfits whose plane wrecked on a mystic island. “The Gospel According to Lost” that challenges you to see yourself and God’s plan in the characters of the hit TV show. In the prologue Chris Seay grabs your attention by writing “You may not have been stranded on an island (much less a magical island), but you know what it feels like to be lost.” – WOW! Yes, we all do know what it feels like to be lost, more personally, I know what that feels like.
This book was an interesting concept and an easy read. Chris Seay takes each main character, devotes a chapter and explains how their life is an example with Bible quotes. For example, in chapter about Sayid, the following is written, “No one is beyond redemption. Not even Sayid.” The entire book is filled with great nuggets like the one mentioned here.
I found myself wanting to re-watch the episodes mentioned in the book to re-live the experiences and be able to say “Yes, I thought that same exact thing when I saw that episode”, but unfortunately (fortunately for him) Chris Seay is more of a Biblical scholar than I am.
I’d recommend this book to any fan of Lost!
