it was amazing

This book just makes me so happy. It's very funny, and very sad sometimes. It vacillates between the two, and each becomes more effective following the other. It makes well-formed points about religion and belief and mysticism without being too serious or too goofy. Moore really aimed at an incredibly small target (a dark comedic morality-versus-ethicality play featuring a relaxed, modernized Jesus), and struck a perfect bullseye.
