They Call Me Carpenter

Gelesen von Tom Weiss

(4,25 Sterne; 12 Bewertungen)

The story takes place in the fictional city of Western City circa 1920. It begins with a man named Billy who is attacked by a mob of ex-servicemen outside a theater after watching a German film. Billy stumbles into a church to escape the mob and is visited by Carpenter, that is Jesus, who walks out of the stained glass window of the church. Carpenter is shocked and appalled by his observations of greed, selfishness, lust, sorrow, and the ultimate division between rich and poor. The story then roughly follows the ministry of Jesus.

The story has so much potential but the author did very little with what should be a story that writes itself. All of the allusions to the new testament are very forced and trying too hard. Plus the story says relatively little about society when it should be able to say so much. Just a boring story all in all.
