    Chris Seay Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Gospel According to Lost book, this is one of the most wanted Chris Seay author readers around the world.


    LOST fans. They’re so annoying. (Can I get an amen?) I mean seriously. Their motto should be “How to lose friends and alienate people.” They talk about their theories on the end of the show and their theories about who Jacob is and their theories about why the plane really crashed. And now, to add insult to injury, they’ll be talking about their theories on parallel timelines. And of course they talk about all of this stuff with non-fans who have no idea (and really don’t care) what’ [...]

    With one exception, I got no new insights into LOST, it's characters, or the Gospel according to Chris Seay. The one exception was Seay's take on the love of Penny and Desmond, comparing it to the type of love that our Creator has for us and I think he does a more than fair job of explaining it. There is actually just about the right amount of Christian theme to this book which keeps it from becoming a sermon or too preachy (much like the show itself). Most of it is in the form of quotes from th [...]

    Sent over from publisher. Will read and post review.

    I'm a huge LOST fan, but this book was pushing it a little bit with it's connections to Christianity. It was OK, but not great.

    This book is a very quick read. I am a Christian and big "Lost" fan and must admit I found myself compelled to read someone's insight on possible Biblical links to the show. While I found it interesting, I must confess that I really only found 10-12 pages of "a-ha" moments where I wanted to reread the sections and rethirnk the show and its characters. The author devotes at least one chapter to nearly all of the characters. There are a few characters whose purposed ties to a Biblical character se [...]

    When Thomas Nelson Publishers offered a free review copy of “The Gospel According to LOST” by Chris Shea, I was at the same time tempted and repulsed. But I couldn’t help myself—I requested the book.Since the premier episode of the television show “LOST”, I’ve been hooked, and I count myself as one of its biggest fans. I’m also a “fan” of, and believer in, the true Gospel (according to God). I was sure this book would either reveal some truths behind the mysterious and muddle [...]

    My wife and I have been watching Lost from Episode 1 and thus I felt qualified (and excited) to review this book. Typically with a niche book such as this, I find myself saying "this book isn't for everyone, but fans of _________ will enjoy it". However, I don't feel I can even say that, because all the things that make Lost such an arresting show are missing from this book: deep philosophical questions, challenging theological themes, and a joy in both the mystery and the revelation. Also missi [...]

    To say that Lost is a phenomenon would be an understatement. Over the last 6 seasons, I've watched and listened as viewers have followed the trials of their favorite island castaways and with the final season just beginning, it seemed appropriate for me to review The Gospel According to Lost by Chris Seay.As many viewers are aware, Lost is more than a story about a group of people who get stranded on an island, it's a multi~layered story that explores fate, reason, faith, guilt, salvation and a [...]

    As an avid fan of Lost, I was really excited to see the show related to my personal journey of faith. Any viewer of Lost can tell you that JJ Abrams and crew pack in a BAJILLION references to faith, Christianity, the Bible, philosophy, science, literature, music, and history -- all while attempting to give valid reasons why the six-packed, sweaty men on the island might need to run around with their shirts off. It’s a lot for a girl to take in! And a lot of information for any author to tackle [...]

    Being a fan of the TV show Lost, I couldn't help putting my hand up for a copy of Chris Seay's The Gospel According to Lost through ThomasNelson's Booksneeze program. This book looks at how life, faith, science, philosophy, hope and the basic questions of what it means to be human are explored in the TV show and relates them back to biblical stories and characters.If you have watched Lost you will know that there are always questions and as an answer for each question is found more questions res [...]

    "The Gospel According to Lost" is not normally a book I would blindly pick up. I am not a major fan of any of the "Gospel According to" books. To say that Chris Seay pleasantly surprised me would be and understatment. As an avid viewer of LOST, I generally enjoyed this spin on the show.The book begins by explaining how LOST is different from other shows and why it has become an import influence to the people who watch it every week. After this introduction, each chapter examines a specific chara [...]

    ABC's "Lost" has been at the center of many late night coffee shop conversations. One cannot help but talk about what happened last on the show. It screams at you to just say something. It wants you to devise your own theory. It whispers, "Go ahead and tell people what you think all of this means." Pastor Chris Seay the author of "The Gospel According to Lost" does just that. He explores each character in depth and begins a conversation with the reader about the show's spiritual implications.I [...]

    When I dove into The Gospel According to Lost I was hoping that it would present the gospel using characters and stories from one of my favorite shows, Lost; what I expected I never received. Chris Seay does a great job of taking pieces of the hit show Lost and explaining them – pulling out spiritual aspects and relating them to scripture. Though there was nothing really bad about this, I did not like it and can’t quite figure out why. Reading this book I was hoping for more than to hear tha [...]

    I'm not certain what I was expecting, but this isn't it. It was informative, perhaps more than I wanted to know because I am watching on DVD and am only on season 2. There were a lot of "spoilers" in the book. Knowing some of the things that will happen make me less eager to watch the entire series.

    Kind of like a long Doc Jensen column, though primarily focusing on the biblical parallels in the show LOST. This one had it's moments of unique insight, though not nearly as insightful and oft-mind-blowing as Jensen's fare. And it is kind of curious why the author didn't wait until the end of the final season to put out this book since he spent a large part of the book speculating on who Jacob is and what his role would be in the final season and like most of our speculations prior to the final [...]

    The Gospel According to Lost by Chris Seay is an enjoyable and interesting read. Although I have never gotten into the Lost phenomenon, I am familiar with the show. I have seen a few episodes in which I have enjoyed.Chris Seay is a Pastor, speaker and a wonderful writer. He describes all the characters of the series as “The Patron Saints of Lost." He also calls them Losties. The author delves deeper into the personalities of each character. He describes the flaws and quirks that each of the ch [...]

    Pleasant, not particularly substantive, hit on and went with the point that LOST was primarily about its' characters ongoing struggles for redemption and falls from grace, that things don't make sense but we have to keep trying and failing and trying again anyways. And yes, that is LOST to a T, as frustrating as it may be.Slightly more of a Lost fan's praise of the show than a thing focused on Christian stuff, Seay didn't quite make the connections he wanted to between the show and the Bible, li [...]

    I suppose I am disappointed because I expected more from the book but it fell a bit short for me. I didn't realize it was written before the final season aired so some of the author's ideas about the show are off. I do agree that there was connections to Christianity but I think the author was pushing it slightly and was trying to come up with more than was really there. But that is my opinion. also, his attempt at humor fell short for me as well. I did not like his "jokes". I should say that I [...]

    While there is much to be said (and has been said) about the philosophies within the titanic world of Lost, this book takes on few of those ideas and instead focuses largely on the specific characters and their relationships. Structuring the book this way is an interesting choice and not inappropriate, considering that the show's characters are some of the most complicated and dynamic of any television show. It approaches Lost from a distinctly Christian viewpoint, and while there were many inte [...]

    This book was a let down. I think I expected it to be more like the Philosophy & Pop Culture series, where the authors really find connections (well, usually. Sometimes the connections are kind of weak.) between the pop culture reference and philosophy. This book, on the other hand, was more like "Oh, well, people get second chances on the island. Jesus and the Bible talk about second chances" and "There's good vs. evil on the island, just like in the Bible." Each chapter is so short (with a [...]

    Chris is someone who I've run into from time to time, and I always enjoy our conversations. I've read one of his other books, "The Gospel Reloaded" (a book about The Matrix movies), quite a few years ago, and I really enjoyed it.And this was on LOST - one of my all-time favorite TV showsd I REALLY wanted to like the book. Unfortunately, it didn't do a lot for me. I actually did buy it thinking that it would be more of Chris musing on some of his LOST theories, which isn't what the book is. So th [...]

    Chris Seay's book does a decent job of bringing up themes of truth, mystery, love, and theology found throughout the Lost series. Where it falls short, however, is in the fact that the majority of the material is more of a summary of the events of the show instead of commentary. I found myself wanting more of his insights at the end of each chapter, but it seemed that every chapter just tip-toed into interpreting the themes found.I am glad I bought and read the book, though. It was entertaining [...]

    Having never partaken of the Lost phenomenon, I selected this offering from booksneeze as a challenge to see if the book could stand on it's own merits. Chris Seay does a fine job of giving a basic refresher of the plot JJ Abrams has created then proceeds to character descriptions. The characters are given a brief description and then Seay explains the spiritual, biblical, and philosophical role that each plays in the series to create a coherent whole. Fans of the show or just students of archet [...]

    From the very start, LOST was a sophisticated program. There are thousands of interpretations on what LOST the TV series was really about. This work makes ties connecting the best tv show ever and the Scriptures. It takes an in-depth examination of the roles and how we link to them. As each personality is discussed, the writer provides an excellent summary of what has made these people be so lost.For more information refer to out website post at: BooksCrier

    This book seems okay. It seems weird to me to analyze a fictional tv show (one that is incredibly far out, mind you) and try to get spiritual inspiration from it. I don't really see the point in doing it. The show is really, really great. I'm just not sure I want to dissect it to see what all is "Christian" about the show. Some Lost fanatics will certainly like this book, it just wasn't my cup of tea.

    As I hope to inform you, LOST is my favorite TV show. Not just for its dynamic mythologies but because of the great characters that make up the show. This book takes those characters and puts a spiritual spin on each of them. I found it intriguing but wonder how accurate it will be since the book was written before this final season started. Someone needs to write a book like this when the series is finished. 3 out of 5.

    This book was written before the very disappointing conclusion of the series. Seay attempts to examine the characters in the show, LOST, in the light of the various conflicts each of us feel between our human falleness and the transformed life in Christ. As a fan of the show (until the finale) I found this book interesting, but not particularly epiphanic.

    For anyone who is a LOST fan, this is a good book that brings together a lot of the themes and interprets it through a Christian worldview. Make sure you've watched the first five seasons before reading. It's a quick read so it would work well between shows too. i won't be watching season 6 until it comes out on DVD so please don't give any spoilers.

    I saw this book at a used book sale. My son has loved watching through this series, and I knew Seay might engage him with the Gospel through this story. After he finished it, I gave it a quick read. It is basically a recap of every character's storyline weaved with the story of Christ. It wasn't great, but it accomplished what Seay hoped to achieve: To make much of Jesus.

    First of all, you must LOVE LOST in order to gain anything from this book. Since I meet that criteria, I was intrigued to see what Mr. Seay would find among the survivors. While I am not a religious person and don't typically read religious books, I found his insights into the characters very fascinating. This book was not "preachy" and I enjoyed that.
