"Do you read the Bible for the sex? Did you find the story of Solomon threatening to cut the baby in half really messed-up--in a good way? This is the book for you. Mad prophets gather around a dilapidated musician in a seedy night club. A widow slaughters the enemy general. A doomed king speaks to the dead. Written by the most original voices in dark fantasy...these nine stories are full of passion, violence and divine exuberance."--P. [4] of cover.

This is a Bible-themed short story collection. If you found the movie Noah weird and meaningful and utterly exciting, then this is the book for you. These nine tales range from modern retellings of Bible stories to Cthulu inspired mashups. This is a perfect book for annoying atheists and evangelicals alike.
