it was amazing

What an amazing story! The difference between good and evil in its traditional, fundamentalist sense is examined and thoroughly discarded here. The message of hope that results left me (happily) stunned.

Michael is what one might call a demon, damned by association. Except that Donnie, who looks like an angel, has trouble accepting that. The connection between the two men is what allows Michael to rethink who he truly is.

I love the depth of thought that went into explaining Michael's origins and the explanation for the final solution. The "breadth and inclusiveness" of one Christian church versus another is a stroke of genius as far as I'm concerned. I recommend this story to anyone who has struggled with their faith and has questioned what some of the more traditional churches have to say about inclusiveness.
