One more snippet

Here's another appetizer from the book, from the end of the introduction (pp. 14-15). There are also some exciting things on the horizon--a couple of interviews and a special deal--which I will post more about when I have the details!

The intention of this book is to remain true to the nature of The X-Files by posing and exploring questions, but also to move forward and propose some answers. Some of the questions are more metaphorical or metaphysical. . . . But some of the questions relate to the practical, and challenging, realities of our lives. . . . While there are many different ways to respond to these questions, this volume investigates the answers within the Christian tradition, a tradition often appealed to by the show itself. What The X-Files presents us with are perplexities and possibilities, constantly interweaving the themes of belief, trust, perception, truth, and ultimately, faith, hope, and love.
