Synopsis: Faith Odyssey is a Lent book like none ever written. Richard Burridge here invites readers to journey through the season of Lent with devotional readings that combine Scripture with stories from science fiction and popular culture.

For each day, beginning with Ash Wednesday, passages from the Bible are placed alongside stories drawn from literature, television, and film—from Homer’s Odyssey to 2001: A Space Odyssey from Star Trek and Star Wars to Dune and The Matrix, mixing Narnia, Harry Potter, and Pilgrim’s Progress—all to illustrate the human journey from the ashes of sorrow to the joy of Jesus’ ultimate victory. Burridge’s fifty short readings trace with flair and great relevance the Christian pilgrimage against the background of today’s world.

Packed with thought-provoking insight into the meaning of the Lenten season, Faith Odyssey truly provides a unique devotional experience.

Review: Faith Odyssey is an unusual take on the traditional Lenten period of penitence, fasting, and meditation: it's more of an introduction to a whole new way of thinking about salvation. Richard A. Burridge has picked a Bible reading for each day of Lent and teamed it with a sideways glance at the plots and symbolism of his favorite science-fiction films, TV shows, and books.

While the Bible selections are almost all familiar passages, the literary comparisons are often right up-to-date and not always easy to explain--hence the many long interpretations of some complicated film plots. If you're a sci-fi fan, you will adore the detailed references and parallels drawn, and if you're not, you may sometimes wonder why those film studios spend so much money on plot development and special effects when it's all been done before in the epic stories and spectacular events of the Bible. Once you become familiar with the frequent and sudden departures from the world of the Bible into science fiction (as if you're being beamed up to or down from the Star Ship Enterprise every second paragraph), you may begin to feel quite adept at traveling swiftly between these parallel universes. People finding their way through Lent for the first time, or those who want a different perspective, may particularly appreciate this repackaging of Lenten themes in a new light. --Susannah Steel, Amazon.co.uk
