Peter Laws: Finding God through horror movies

December 15, 2018

Many Christians are wary of engaging with anything remotely spooky, but Baptist minister Rev Peter Laws takes a different approach. Born with "the spooky gene", Peter is fascinated by the macabre. From his early life before coming to faith, to his time as a youth worker and now ordained minister, Peter has always been interested in Halloween, witches, ghosts and horror films. In his conversation with Premier Youth and Children's Work editor Ruth Jackson, Peter explains he has "a healthy level of scepticism" toward some elements of the paranormal. He also argues that Christians need to take a more measured approach to some of the spooky topics we've typically avoided.
