内容紹介

What happens one sultry summer night when a Christian and a vampire meet on a fire escape and agree to engage in a cordial conversation? A touch of hilarity, plus eye-popping—and Undead heart-starting—revelation, as vampire myth and legend give way to greater Truth!

Think Anne Rice meets Frank Peretti!

Excerpt
“Oh, I’m just in the mood for some good conversation. Cordial conversation, I assure you.” The shadows twisted and I thought he turned toward me. “What do you say, Taz?”

“I can always agree to a cordial conversation.”

“Ah. Good.” I saw that flash of white again and the faint outline of a sharp jaw. His voice was young and cultured, and I guessed his age at about thirty, but . . . but his elegant manner belied that relatively youthful age. Something distinctly mature emanated from him, and I warned myself not to base my estimation of his age on his appearance.

“I watched you work down in the Glades tonight,” he murmured, “and I confess I am somewhat curious . . . about you. . . Taz.”

He paused before adding, casually, “Dear me. This rusty old fire escape doesn’t lend itself much to comfort or civility, does it? Might we be more at our ease inside?”

“You want me to invite a vampire into my home.” I waggled my eyebrows and just looked at him. Like, really?

He giggled low in his throat, tickled that I’d found him out so quickly. “But surely you’re not afraid?”

I shrugged. “Not afraid. Just not stupid.”

He spread his hands again, a self-deprecating gesture. “It was just a . . . cordial suggestion, Taz.”

“Well, could I offer you something to drink?” I smiled this time. “In the spirit of cordiality, of course.”

It was quite interesting how his eyes flared red. I hadn’t been 100 percent certain where they were until they did.

Annnnnd apparently I’d ticked him off.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Spiritual Warfare based entirely on the Word of God, and the Spirt of God. Even Better on the Second Time Reading. Brilliant! 2015/7/5
投稿者 Peter Younghusband - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This is the second time I have read The Christian and the Vampire and I did this for 2 reasons. One, I did not write a review of this when I read it in December 2014, and two, it is worth reading again purely for the way the story is structured to allow the many bible references and their explanation to move the story along and show the power of the Word and how it defeats all claims that being a follower of Satan (in this case, as a vampire) is more attractive and beneficial than being a follower of Christ.

This is the third Christian story involving the question, "Can a vampire be saved/redeemed?" The first one I read was Blood for Blood by Ben Wolfe and the second was Devil's Pathway (DAWN: Warriors of Valor Book 1) by Vicki V Lucas. I do have another waiting to be read. All these three authors share the same premise that indeed they can be redeemed, and I would also say the same for werewolves. The latter has been dealt with in this same vein by William Woodall, in his The Last Werewolf Hunter: The Complete Series.

Kestell has constructed this short very well with the placement of the bible verses that portray what the bible says about redemption, salvation, Christ's victory over sin and death, Satan's judgement, penalty of sin, consequences of refusing Christ's gift of salvation in relation to Lambros being a vampire. Very cleverly done structuring the plot around the verses or is it that she constructed the verses around the plot? Hard to tell when it is done this well. It struck me that this short could be used to minister to a satanist or someone who is so very bound in their sin/sinful lifestyle and feels there is no hope for them including anything that God has to offer.

I guess another reason I wanted to read this again is that it reinforces where all Christians have come from, including me, a past of sin, rebellion against God, and this short that shows what the bible says about our past and our future. It is always good to go return to ones roots to appreciate where one has come from and where one is now. I have a greater appreciation of the Word, what Christ achieved for me on the Cross and everything relating to all the doctrines outlined in the previous paragraph.

Kestell uses humour to add spice to this short. It also adds to both the character building of Taz and Lambros. Kestell has also portrayed Taz as the discerning, well versed in Scripture, spiritual warrior that Christians all need to be as the whole essence of becoming a Christian means that we have taken one side against the other in this spiritual warfare that we are involved in since we were created.

Apart from the bible references that make this short rich in spiritual warfare, I loved how Taz was so in tune with the Spirit when ministering to Lambros. Again, this is another part of our spiritual armour. The final spiritual warfare scene at the end of the short involving a warrior angel and demon is very dramatic and I loved the way Taz states that he was not afraid of this tangible evil presence that descended on both Lambros and himself as he knew who he is in Christ and the protection that is his as a consequence of this,

"I felt no fear for myself - I am, after all, one of the redeemed of The Lord. Satan has no legal footing in my life."

I applaud Kestell for this short. I feel it is quite a masterpiece of construction however simple. This story would be very effective for small group bible study on spiritual warfare and witnessing to those who are heavily involved in satanism or other satanic groups or as I mentioned previously, those who are so caught up in their sin and feel there is not hope for them or a way out. I would love to see a discussion guide added to a future edition of this short.

One highlight that I found very useful is in the kindle version where each reference to a bible verse or piece of conversation that was based on a bible verse or doctrine had a link to it that you could press and the verse would appear in a separate, mini window on the screen. This would benefit bible study groups or the individual that is seeking God. All the individual would have to do is put themselves in the position of Lambros, not as a vampire, but as one who is enslaved to sin and Satan as Lambros was.

This is one very entertaining, edifying but sobering read of spiritual warfare, who Christians are in Christ, what Christ has achieved for everyone on the Cross and the hope that exists in Him that is rife in His Word.

Highly Recommended.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Wow! I was impressed. Great theology and interesting plot. 2016/8/19

Now, don't freak out. You'll probably think this is really weird, but I read a vampire book. I wondered how in the world someone could write a vampire from a Christian perspective. Vikki nailed it! I enjoyed her characters. I was impressed by their conflict- a conversation. And I thought her use of spiritual warfare was spot-on. It's actually an insightful reminder for all Christians while being intriguing fiction. You should read it. Author Felicia Mires

5つ星のうち 5.0 The Christian and The Vampire. 2014/10/13
投稿者 Kindle Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
What happens when a Christian has a conversation with a Vampire? Wonderful, amazing things happen, because of their conversation.

Taz is amazing and I hope Ms. Kestell will write more books with him as the main character. Taz knows how to use his spidey-senses (discernment) and his lightsaber( The bible) to battle the dark forces. He is determined to save a soul from hell. Go, Taz, go and use those spidey-senses.

This book should be count among the top 10 of 2014. It should win awards.

5つ星のうち 5.0 I loved it! An Honest Review! 2014/11/3
投稿者 Susie - (Amazon.com)

I DID! I loved it!

I am on a lot of book lists and only infrequently download and read books from those lists. When I saw this book on one of the lists, my thoughts were, "Ya, right, a Christian AND a Vampire? Hmmmmmm... It's free, so I'll check it out."

The beginning captivated me! I read the entire short story in one sitting. At first I thought the writing was too simplistic. But after reading a couple of pages, I realized that it needs to be... to follow which character is speaking. I couldn't put it down!!! Oh and I thought I knew the ending ahead of time, but nope. That was a little bit of a surprise.

This is a great book for people who have questions, are searching, AND those who already know!

Thank you for the extra BONUSES of excerpts from other books. They seemed like short stories and were also good! If you download this book, be careful, you just might get hooked.

5つ星のうち 3.0 A Christian Vampire Story 2014/11/19
投稿者 L. Braun - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A street evangelist finds a vampire waiting for him on his fire escape when he gets home. The vampire displays typical vampire bravado, but it soon becomes clear he's there because he recognizes he needs help.

On the author's theological arguments, I thought they were sound, but moot. There's no such thing as vampires. Why go into this whole debate on whether or not they can be saved? That's right up there with questioning whether aliens can be saved. Interesting in fiction, certainly, but not relevant to life as we know it. I suppose her aim was to present the gospel to fans of vampire stories?

On the story, I would have liked more character development on the vampire. We get a bit on the evangelist. Not enough to care what happens to him, but enough to make him sound like a person rather than just a narrative voice. But she doesn't give us enough on the vampire. Who is Lambros? Who was he before he became a vampire? There's nothing on his background, his relationships; no insight into his character. We only know he's done all the standard vampire things, and that doesn't go a long way in either identifying with him or caring what happens to him. It was interesting to read how she worked it all out, but it really could have ended either way. When the end came, I just kind of shrugged and picked up another book.

If you're a Christian interested in vampires, you might like this short story. But if you aren't interested in reading a presentation of the gospel, or you think vampires are a waste of time, you may want to try one of the author's other books.
