I didn't like this book at first. I was frightened. I've never read the Bible and I was concerned that I may not be able to follow what Moore was doing. I'm also Catholic (I converted in my early twenties to marry a Catholic boy. However, the guilt comes to me easily) and I wondered how this novel might fit into the religious views of a former Athiest and current lazy Catholic. I soon stopped worrying about these things and began enjoying Moore's take on the life of Jesus H. Christ, aka Joshua.

Theophilus Crowe is the constable of Pine Cove, a small town that flourishes in tourist season and slows to a crawl the rest of the year. He's also a forty year old stoner. Molly Michon is the town's crazy lady and a former B movie actress who lives in a trailer park with her signature leather bikini and broad sword. Val Riordan is the town psychiatrist that decides to put all of her patients on placebo, without their knowledge, after a patient suicide. The Sea Beast? Well, he's just looking to get laid.

Tucker Case is a screw-up. He's also a pilot for make-up guru Mary Jean Dobbins. After drinking in a airport bar, Tucker makes the biggest mistake of his life. Well, up to that point.
