Books on Jesus...? Try the Horror section!

I 've been looking for "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt", I wanted it before we went on holiday but despite trawling several book shops it wasn't to be found.

Eryn and I had some time to kill in Canary Wharf so we bought 'Horrid Henry and his Nits' and I thought I'd check once more. I rummaged books etc.. but to no avail. So I asked.

"Have you got "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt"?"

"Whose it by?"

"Anne Rice"

"Try the horror section...!"

With a stupid me 'why didn't I think of that' roll of the eyes I wander to the horror section and there it was!

"Anne Rice, the chronicler of vampires, witches and—under the pseudonym A. N. Roquelaure—of soft-core S&M encounters, [has publishished] "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt," a novel about the 7-year-old Jesus, narrated by Christ himself. "I promised," she says, "that from now on I would write only for the Lord." It's the most startling public turnaround since Bob Dylan's "Slow Train Coming" announced that he'd been born again."

I can hear the 'evangelical band marketing wagon' coughing into life as we speak ;o)
