I read and enjoyed Orson Scott Card’s book Sarah. In fact, that book sparked an interest in me to find out more about what exactly we knew of ancient times, both New and Old World.
Now Anne Rice, of vampire fame, has a book (the first of several) coming out on the life of Christ. She apparently has recently returned to her Catholic faith and is trying to write something a little more uplifting. Says she, “I promised that from now on I would write only for the Lord.” Wow. As the journalist put it, this is the biggest shock since Dylan converted. I’ve never read Anne’s works, but I bet some of you have. Is she a good writer or a mass-market pulpist? What are the chances this book is any good?
