Product Description

Product Description

Religious Satire: A humorous tale of the Gods of Heaven and Hell.

Satan has a problem. He has come up short on his quotas for collecting souls and he is none too pleased. With the help of his loyal and trusted companion, Grim Reaper, the pair orchestrate a natural disaster that will balance the “books”.

With an undertaking of this size, the two will need to hire some help. They outsource the work to Jesus, Hercules, Mary and Joseph, right under the nose of God. The plan is doomed from its inception, but Satan is a determined little demon and will stop at nothing to succeed. With Jesus’ drinking problem, Hercules’ steroid addiction and Mary and Josephs marital troubles, could Satan’s plan really have a chance?

Follow the long cast of immortals as they manage to turn their celestial world upside down.

More About the Author

Christopher David Petersen (1963 - 20??). Born and raised in Connecticut, USA. As a child, I was always daring and reckless. Never one to let common sense stand in the way of a great adventure, my bold feats of stupidity were legendary... Huckleberry Finn would have been proud.

"Surprisingly", that same spirit carried over into adulthood, as I sought out entertainment that included: scuba diving; ski Mountaineering; mountain biking; Rock, Ice and Mountain climbing; flying planes; golf, motorcycles, the stock market and of course, experimentation with various alcoholic refreshments.

Later in life, writing became an extension of my deep desire to experience "new and exciting worlds". I have written several books, but none have been published through any formal channels... I've heard the process is long, painful and laborious, the thought of which sickens me. My foray into e-publishing came after a friend suggested my works could fetch dollars instead of dust inside my sock drawer... a righteous observation. My recent publications are the result of this advice. Further adventure/suspense novels are soon to be released.

An engineer by trade, I have worked all over the U.S. and usually write in my spare time... that is when I'm not enjoying a bottle of Scotch and a quality cigar. I am a naturally long-winded individual, so writing is what happens when I can't get anyone to listen to me anymore...

I love all kinds of genres but gravitate more towards suspense. There is nothing like the build up to a great climax... What a rush!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Funny Read 23 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I Loved this book! Hilariously funny and a bit wacky and some may say wicked! The thought of God, Satan, and other Gods playing poker every week is hilarious.

Got caught laughing while reading the final chapters in Denners (Beales) cafe at lunchtime, and had to apologise to the next table! Excellent read!

5.0 out of 5 stars funniest book i've read in a long time 6 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are some books which say they are going to be funny but just dont live up to the hype. This one is sheer genius! i had never heard of the author before and just liked the title. if you take it at face value and not try to read any deep religious meaning into it the book will have you laughing out loud in hysterics. High praise? indeed it is and deservedly so. love the relationship between god and satan. this is not a book for those who take offense easily especially when poking fun at religion. I can only hope his other books are just as good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Adolescent humour 12 Jun 2011
By Galning
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I feel a bit bad giving this book a bad review as, having looked at the author's list, he's got 4 books available and my review will be the first.....so, sorry. I do worry about trampling on someone's dreams as all writers have to start somewhere and even the greats would probably rather we didn't read their first attempts.

I was very surprised to realise I was born the same year as the author as I expected that this had been written by a 20-something. For me it was firmly in the South Park genre (a show that I just don't GET).

To put things in context - I love comedy / satire and poss my fav film of all time was The Life of Brian and I've watched it MANY times. So I wasn't worried that the subject matter would offend me. Plus it was free.

I just found that 17% of the way into the book I was bored. There wasn't enough going on as, by that point, God / Red (Satan) had had a conversation and Jesus was called from a drinking session with his angel buddies to go and speak to "his dad". The part that probably made me realise I wasn't going to find this book funny was the "celestial wedgie". I doubt I would even have found that funny when I was 13....

I didn't read any further to find out if this was the humour level that continued but, if it is typical, then I'm not sure where an audience will be found for it. Do teenage boys read books any more?

I also think, as someone who loves books like Peter James / Grisham etc, I like my books more fast paced. There just wasn't enough going on here to hold my interest.

And if the author reads this....I'm REALLY sorry if I spoilt your day. Keep trying.
