Towing Jehovah - James K. Morrow This is a hard one to decide what to think about it. It's a Vonnegut-esque farce: the giant corpse of God is found floating in the mid-Atlantic. Hijinks ensue. The author seems to have done his homework, leading discussions on Kant, theodicy, and similar while a WWII re-enactment society, Atlantis, Persian Gulf tankers and other oddities show up and lighten the mood. The author mercifully takes aim in all directions, with feminists, born-agains, Jesuites, Jews, scholars, rationalists and many other kinds of people all taking turns being ridiculous. A little light reading about the big questions.
