Inside you’ll discover what LOST has to say aboutI believe the metaphors that are found in this book between the characters, the island, the show and faith are best summarized in the chapter dealing with Desmond and Penelope, the ultimate display of love between two characters but also between God and those He created. These are two characters that you would never imagine to be together. They come from two very different walks of life yet somehow end up together. Even though things got messed up between them, they never stopped loving each other. There was forgiveness in a broken relationship and eventually they found their way back to each other. We have messed up in our relationship with God through our own sinful nature, but God’s unconditional love never stops pursuing us. Because of Christ’s work on the cross and through His blood we can have forgiveness and a personal and intimate relationship with the Creator of the whole world. Chris Seay best says it in that chapter, “No matter what we’ve done, it’s never too late – because in His perfect love there is always forgiveness.”• the clash between faith and reason, on the island and in real life;
• the struggle with guilt that consumes each character – and sometimes us too;
• the dichotomy between fatalism and fate, and what the Bible advises;
• how being lost – on an island or in society – presents and opportunity for reinvention that liberates some and paralyzes others.
