Go Forth and Geek Out!
Nerd. Geek. Dungeon Master. These used to be derisive labels. But now, geek is the new chic.
Humorist, cartoonist, and geek culture enthusiast Ellen Elliott invites you to embrace your inner Spock and boldly go where no devotional has gone before—on a righteous, pop culture-filled quest for truth, meaning, and authenticity.
From Lost to Back to the Future to Minecraft, and worlds beyond, join Ellen as she searches for spiritual Easter eggs hidden all over the geek multiverse. Get a Kung Fu grip on what God's Prime Directive says on topics such as hardship, fear, courage, and more.
And now, true believer, you know what this book is all about. And as you also know, knowing is half the battle.
