Rated 4 out of 5 by from Oddities Abound This was a great book! First of all, the premise is interesting enough to make anyone take a second look. God is dead? Why? And why tow the body? And what about the Church? James Morrow is an amazing author, because while this story could have turned preachy, or overly religious, the balance of two rough and gritty sea captains was perfect. He even managed to throw in a few days of hedonism without losing the big ideas in the story. I would suggest anyone and everyone pick this up, because it's a quick and amusing read, with Morrow-style depth.
