This is my first take of the author James Morrow. True, this was a light reading, but this book asked the big questions. The premise being the corpse of God (a two-mile long white male with a grey beard, as he has often been depicted) is discovered floating in the Atlantic Ocean. The captain of a supertanker is dispatched by the Vatican on a secret mission to tow the Divine Corpse to a tomb carved out of the Arctic ice.

A real thought- provoking read. But note that this book is definitely NOT for everybody. When I was discussing this with a friend (a not-so-religious-but-someone-who-believed-in-the-Almighty), I got a high brow reaction.

Compared to Lamb by Christopher Moore. Nah! forget I said that. I cannot compare this with that book.!
