I've never read anything like this in my life. I don't know if I'd characterize this as horror - maybe religious science fiction. This book tells some of the more common biblical tales in the context of Christian dogma, physics, and genetics.

This book is the devil's story of the origins of God, Satan, the angels and demons. It tells of how they made their way to our universe. It details the war of heaven, the manipulation of man, and the prophecy of what is to come. The book starts with a priest, an ancestor of the author, being visited by Lucifer in the dead of night. Lucifer tells the priest that the bible is a lie. He tells the priest to seek out Three Mad Prophets who know the real story of what transpired. The priest finds the prophets, all mad and near death, and writes down the tale.

The story begins in another universe and tells the story of how God and all the angels in heaven were created. It tells how we they came to our universe, our world. I don't want to give anything away, but God and Satan have a disagreement on the race of man and a war ensues. God want to breed them as slaves, whose only purpose is to praise Gad and the angels, because only the energy of prayer can sustain them in this universe. Satan believes they have no right to enslave others so that the angels can survive.

A battle ensues and Satan and his army lose.

The rest of the book tells about how God forced the evolution of life on earth to create a race strong in faith that could be easily led. It tells of how Satan and his demons interfered and caused an end to the age of miracles - the time where God was able to walk among us.

The story tells of Adam and Eve and their children, how the expulsion from Eden was the result of God's experiment gone wrong. Satan gives his wisdom to man in the Book of Proverbs, to help us break free from the bonds of the Lord God. The book takes us to the time of Jesus, and explains why he really came among us. It touches upon the inquisition before giving us a chilling prediction of the future - with some of the prophecy, seemingly, already having happened.

If you're easily offended when science and logic is applied to Christian belief, p on this. This book explains a lot of biblical strangeness, and - indeed - makes a lot more sense than the bible. But I can see some people wanting to shoot this writer! For the rest of you that can enjoy good philosophy wrapped in revisionist theology, man is this book for you.
