Comprised of two novellas and five short stories from one of science fiction’s most renowned contemporary authors, this volume is a collection of all of Mike Resnick’s works that deal with religious themes. From the story about the nature of killing to an offbeat interpretation of the coming of the Messiah at the end of the 21st century, these tales are all conversations elaborating Resnick’s philosophies on God, Jesus, the Wandering Jew, and other elements of religion. Thought-provoking and irreverent, these stories exemplify some of the great work from this award-winning author.
"Nobody spins a yarn better than Mike Resnick. Best of all, when the story's over, you find that he's left something in your memory for you to draw on again and again: a clearer understanding of how nobility emerges from the struggles of life." --Orson Scott Card "Resnick is thought-provoking, imaginative ... and above all galactically grand." --Los Angeles Times "One of the most daring and prolific writers in science fiction. There's no subject he won't explore, and he always delivers." --David Brin, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author, Kiln People "Resnick makes science fiction fun, without ever forgetting ... the genuine point of his stories." --Analog "Resnick writes with skill and authority ... [and] a sense of solidity and reality extraordinary in ... science fiction." --Washington Post "...a harrowing story of a woman's strong religious convictions in the face of death and of the urgent call to save her life." - Booklist
