Finding God in Anime

I was published in both volumes 1 and 2 of the anime/manga-themed devotional anthology Finding God in Anime!

Volume 1

Finding God in Anime volume 1 eBook cover

Being a Christian can be tough. Being an otaku can be tough. But being both at once? Sometimes it seems easier to become Hokage rather than explaining your faith and passions to others. That is why we otaku have united in this devotional: To encourage otaku like you spiritually and through a medium we all cherish. So pull out your cosplay and snuggle close with your plushies as you join us in Finding God in Anime.

My devotionals in this volume: “Stewards of the Earth” (Healin’ Good PreCure), “Love Your Enemy” (Sailor Moon), and “Searching for the Real Father” (Cat’s Eye)

Volume 2

Have you ever wanted a season two of your favorite anime but found out it is unlikely for the company to produce one?

Stinks, doesn’t it? Well, Finding God in Anime definitely isn’t like that. After all, you’re looking at volume two right now!

Welcome to the second installment of the acclaimed devotional: Finding God in Anime! Each bite-size piece comes straight from the passionate otaku souls in our collective of Christian authors. You will find anime-inspired pieces from across tons of beloved genres within this devotional, and each one presents a unique and Biblical outlook on your favorite shows!

My devotionals in this volume: “All Actions Have Consequences” (Weathering With You), “The Price for Saving The World” (Yuki Yuna is a Hero), and “Music from the Heart” (Shugo Chara)
