What to expect

Break from the norm. Recover your identity. Express your creativity.

Contemporary Christianity seems to be suffering from an epidemic of sameness, uniformity, and monotony. Those trapped inside are often afraid to step beyond established norms and express their creativity, and those on the outside often see little that attracts them. Yet God, out of the abundance of his own creative force, made each one of us unique, peculiar, and irreplaceable. So why so much pressure to conform?

Bandersnatch* explores this intersection of disillusionment by inviting listeners on a journey of liberation. It’s organized around four creative terms viewed through the life of Jesus: avant-garde, alchemy, anthropology, and art. Each expression reveals a diverse facet of God’s unorthodox creativity planted within us.

Providing a fresh look at God’s avant-garde nature and a new set of definitions by which to live, Erika Morrison gives us permission to break free from the expectations and labels that cramp our souls. Only in embracing our uniqueness can we create artful, holistic lives that matter to both heaven and earth.

*A bandersnatch, while more commonly known as the wild, ferocious, and mythical creature of Lewis Carroll’s creation, is also a person with unconventional habits and attitudes.

Bandersnatch is the transfiguration of Christ for an unbelieving generation and a prophetic word for those thirsty for revival. It is an honor to endorse this very important work.”

Emily T. Wierenga, author of Atlas Girl and Making It Home

“Erika is not simply a writer—she is an artist. In Bandersnatch, she creates this glorious space where I am reintroduced to myself, my true self…This is, I think, what the most wonderful books always do. They remind us who we truly are.”

Shawn Smucker, author of Building a Life Out of Words

Bandersnatch is well written and artfully crafted as an inspiring effort to see God afresh and approach life with a newly defined view of ourselves.”
