What if Jesus of Nazareth had faced both the hungry living and the hungry dead? A man wanders out of the desert one day and finds a village in ruins after a night of the walking dead. The survivors have thrown the snarling corpses into the Sea of Galilee, only to starve as the ghoul-haunted sea stops producing fish. Yeshua has heard their hunger. He hears the suffering of the living and the dead, like moaning in his ears. Desperate to respond, he calls back the fish. Just one thing: The dead are called up, too. No Lasting Burial ushers listeners into a vivid and visceral re-interpretation of the Gospel of Luke and the legend of the Harrowing of Hell. The hungry dead will rise and walk, and listeners may never look at these stories the same way again.… (mere)

What if zombies existed before and during the time of Jesus?

Though sometimes dry and confusing with duplicate names, this tale does have a fair bit of action, romance, and lots of coming of age characters.

Characters feel authentic for their reality, are flawed, and typically caring.

Overall, an interesting read. ( )

(This was originally written for the Amazon electronic version.)

This will be one of the more difficult book reviews I've endeavored to write. The book touched me that personally, and that is not something I can say of many books - not even of the many books that have shaped my reading tastes since childhood.

Stant Litore's Zombie Bible series doesn't do what you might think it does. We've seen zombie-insertion fiction before. This is not that. "No Lasting Burial" is a Biblical story about struggle, suffering, pain, hopelessness, need, and hunger - not just on the part of the Dead, but especially on the part of the Living. It's also a story about hope, healing, and forgiveness.

As someone who long ago had a split with religion and faith, this story was not at all "preachy", but there was definitely a message. What that message may be is certain to vary based on the needs of the reader, but the message I saw was the reflection of the Dead in the Living and the ways in which pain and loss work in our lives. There is no need for a belief in the Christian faith to see the pain and beauty that Litore so carefully crafts into this very human story.

Stepping back from the emotional examination; this is a very well crafted tale. As I read, I had questions that came up and each of them were answered through the telling of the story. Everything was pretty neatly tied up without feeling contrived toward that end. The characters are well-developed and I found myself easily relating to many of them. The PoV shifts, and this change of character perspective helps fill out the narrative all the more.

All in all, this was a wonderful reading experience. Technically, the story was well executed and rendered, and emotionally, it reached down into places I'd forgot could be touched by words. ( )

Jesus of Nazareth walks the earth and he keenly feels the pain of the world. The survivors of Kfar Nahum are a broken people despite following the law. The dead over ran their small fishing town and in the process killed many and left the living broken. In retribution, those who were bitten and destined to rise with a hunger which could never be assuaged were dumped in the sea. The people of Kfar Nahum invoke the memory of Ezra and believe that they have invoked God's anger by not following the law closely enough. This then explains not only why the dead walk but why those cast into the sea now consume the very fish they need to survive.

Yeshua makes his way out of the desert lost and confused, aware that somehow he must stop the sound of the voices screaming in his head. He seeks to feed the people of Kfar Nahum by calling up the fish to feed the hungry but in the process calls the zombies out of the sea. How will the people of Kfar Nahum deal with this horror again, now that they have lost so much?

To be honest, I picked up No Lasting Burial expecting it to be somewhat quirky. A sort of biblical tale meets zombies ala The Walking Dead. It's true that No Lasting Burial does indeed fit the model of a zombie apocalypse/dystopian in the loosest sense; however, the zombies themselves feel sort of extraneous to the story. Life in that time period was hard, particularly for poor Jews. Litore didn't need to add the zombies to give us a sense of suffering and the stark nature of life that the average human lived. The zombies just were over to top. No Lasting Burial feels like an excuse to retell an already familiar biblical story.

I spent much of No Lasting Burial in a state of confusion. There were parts of the story that were absolutely didactic and I felt as though Litore was proselytizing to me. We were told repeatedly that Yeshua was the navi (read: chosen one) and this of course was backed up by his miraculous acts, like bringing someone back from the brink of death after being bitten by a zombie and healing the disabled. Yeshua constantly spoke about his father's house and encouraged the citizens of Kfar Nahum to believe his truth. If I hadn't wanted to read about the years Jesus walked the earth and the miracles he performed, I could have read the bible. The zombies feelt like an excuse for Litore to simply convince the reader how powerful and full of grace Yeshua is.
