Reviews

The New York Observer Whip-smart....Not so much a rewriting of the Bible as a super-charged hip-hop makeover....A genuine stab at a saucy kind of spirituality that's as bold as it is refreshing.
Elle Quirky, far-ranging....With a format as complex as many people's relationship with God, it shouldn't work, but it does -- a literary leap of faith.
The Denver Post A heartfelt meditation on and exploration of contemporary religious practice in the United States...an intriguing work that is unafraid of controversy.
