Anne Rice finds Jesus

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9785289/site/newsweek/

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.

Rice's work is rife with religion and the existence of a higher power. Mnemnoch the Devil is the story of Lestadt trying to decide if God is indeed a real being.

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.

I haven't been on the board in almost a year. I came to this thread knowing you would have something negative to say about anyone who may have a positive message about Christianity.

As usual, you haven't disappointed.

You are entirely predictable in your unnatural prejudiced hatred.

Why is the book reeruned? Have you read the initial draft?

You only substantiate what everyone has already said on this thread with your inane and childish remarks like the one above.

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.
