Overview

Throughout the scriptures, diverse species of monsters appear--false gods, cryptozoological fiends, apocalyptic beasts, and idols--and as they appear, they strike terror in the hearts of God's people. These biblical monsters bear a strong resemblance to our contemporary monsters--fear, anxiety, depression, worry. What we need, more than techniques or tools or time-honored prayers, is a grounded understanding that "greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world." We need to know that God is with us, and that Jesus keeps the monsters away. That's what Monsters is about--eventual and persistent fearlessness, and immediate and lasting courage.
