Anne Rice, the wildly popular author of vampires, witches, demons, and the occult, has now become a born-again Christian, and has announced "that from now on I would write only for the Lord." Following her 10th book on the Vampire Chronicles in 2002, her next release will be called "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt," a novel about the 7-year-old Jesus, narrated by Christ himself.

This... is weird. No, past the state border of "weird", and smack in the middle of "odd and surreal". I dont mean Christianity itself, but Anne Rice?!? Who'da thunk it? I enjoyed her novels, they sometimes got a little creepy and gothic, but she was a very unique storyteller. I dont have any idea what to make of this.

What a bunch of crap this is. Narrarated by Jesus? I could give a shit about christianity but I know there are several scriptures discouraging that sort of thing. This woman is a hypocrite.

She's always been very influenced by her Catholic upbringing. She ranks among my favorite authors, as her Vampire Chronicles is my favorite novel series. I'll probably be hesitant to check out her next novel, because, well, it sounds nuts. Narrated by Christ? This could be controversial. And moreover, a bad novel.

i don't remember Jesus saying anything about not portraying him in various literary and/dramatic roles, which by their nature are spreading the word of God and therefore are by definition, good things...

and i'm pretty sure He didn't proscribe using Him in the role of narrator...

so i guess i'm i'm ok with narration by Jesus...

sounds strange, but ok...

ROFL No sh*t

Anne, you are what you are: the creepy vampire lady from New Orleans. Now, you have enough talent to demand to be taken seriously and be given an honest chance with your new angle, but if it doesnt work out, no one will be surprised.

I'm not predicting failure here, Anne Rice is actually talented enough that I could see her possibly pulling off a Christ book that is interesting enough to draw an audience, but this is an unbelievably huge career gamble. Perhaps she just simply ran out of ideas for the Vampire chronicles and/or got bored with it. She's already made her money, she can afford to write for herself now.

At age 64, I would guess she is just trying to deal with the more immediate possibility of death. As at the same time she opens up this huge audience to her skills in story telling. Let's see CS Lewis and Jon Dos Passos represent writers who moved to a more religious or conservative stance later in life. It is comforting facing one's mortality, to relent to a position that embraces life.

What is funny is the assumption made by many on this thread that this piece of work is an awakening by Rice to true Christianity.

If I have learned nothing from reading her stuff, she loves controversy. Her stories live off of the concepts that breaking the rules and living outside conventional means is high risk but even higher reward.

My initial thought is this book will be no different. I am betting that the Christ image created from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John will be vastly different from Rice's interp.

The only thing I know for sure is that her son Christopher is one of the single worst authors I have read in over 37 years of books that have passed before my eyes.

There was an article in the FYI section of the KC Star a day or two ago about this book and it indicates that Rice returned to her Catholic roots a few years ago and has indeed become a religious person. While it might be subject to some controversy (for the reason GoChiefs identified), it appears to me to be an honest attempt to write a pro-Jesus novel about a time in Jesus' life that was not well documented (his childhood).

First, IMO you didn't deserve the shit you've taken in this thread so don't take this as more of the same.

Second, your 1988 date appears to be wrong. According to the KC Star article, she returned to Catholicism in 1998 after a 30 year absence. Here are some highlights from the article:

From vampires to Jesus

Anne Rice’s return to the Catholic Church points her in a new direction

By BENEDICTA CIPOLLA

Religion News Service

The queen of darkness has seen the light.

In her latest book, Christ the Lord, novelist Anne Rice turns away from the doomed souls of her best-selling tales about vampires and witches in favor of a first-person account of the 7-year-old Jesus.

“I was sitting in church talking to (God) about it, and I finally realized there was no holding back anymore,” said Rice, 64, who returned to the Catholic Church in 1998 after a 30-year absence.

“I just said, ‘From now on it’s all going to be for you.’ And the book I felt I had to write was the life of Christ. … When my faith was given back to me by God, redemption became a part of the world in which I lived. And I wasn’t going to write any more books where that wasn’t the case. You do not have to be transgressive in order to achieve great art.”

With a distinct emphasis on the devout Jewishness of Jesus and his extended family, the novel — due out Nov. 1 with a first-print run of 500,000 copies — depicts their first year in Nazareth after leaving Egypt following the death of King Herod. (The Gospel of Matthew reports that Jesus, Mary and Joseph fled to Egypt shortly after his birth to escape a death sentence by Herod.)

Rice meticulously recounts the daily life of Jews in Galilee against the backdrop of Roman occupation, detailing purification rites, Sabbath study, construction work in the nearby city of Sepphoris and trips to the Temple in Jerusalem for feasts and animal sacrifices.

...

The Gospels are almost silent on Jesus’ childhood, giving Rice a wide berth to take certain liberties with her story. In the book, Jesus is taught in Alexandria by the Hellenistic philosopher Philo, which in turns allows for her Jesus to be fluent in Greek, something many historians doubt was the case.

...

Rice’s ultimate goal, she said, is for readers “to think, ‘Wow, maybe he did exist.’ That was the challenge, to make it real. The greatest compliment people pay me when they read this book is when they say, ‘I was there.’ ”

First, IMO you didn't deserve the shit you've taken in this thread so don't take this as more of the same.

Second, your 1988 date appears to be wrong. According to the KC Star article, she returned to Catholicism in 1998 after a 30 year absence. Here are some highlights from the article:
I thought it was a strange and random pile on. Even though it is a hot button issue for some.

ROFL There's space here on the bench next to SR and me, KCW.
I'll quote what ever you and SR say for GC's benefit.

She apparently had a near-death experience last year with an intestinal blockage.

That's because she's full of shit.

She's always been very influenced by her Catholic upbringing. She ranks among my favorite authors, as her Vampire Chronicles is my favorite novel series. I'll probably be hesitant to check out her next novel, because, well, it sounds nuts. Narrated by Christ? This could be controversial. And moreover, a bad novel.
Influenced by Catholicism, and she has Vampire Chronicles? I wouldn't have made a connection between those two.

Haven't read the whole thread, but she's probably going to present some kind of alternate history of Jesus ala the Davinci Code.

I don't know her work, but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the deal. Usually when something makes as much money as that did the formula gets knocked off in short order.

Hey, she found a religon that works for her, great.

Shame she'll only do Christian books now though...

Based on the articles, I don't think that's the case. She is admittedly taking the liberty of filling in the complete blank that is Jesus' childhood, but she claims to be doing it in an attempt to make people “think, ‘Wow, maybe he did exist.’"

After a religious re-awakening, she says she came to the conclusion that, "‘From now on it’s all going to be for [God].’ And the book I felt I had to write was the life of Christ. … When my faith was given back to me by God, redemption became a part of the world in which I lived. And I wasn’t going to write any more books where that wasn’t the case. You do not have to be transgressive in order to achieve great art.”
