"The fi rst anecdote recounted in this book relate to a deranged man, Bobby
Joe Burns, who killed and mutilated his mother in 1958, under the infl uence
of the Book of Revelation, terrifying the town including the author and his
lifelong best friend. That friend, Gigsy, had his own mental diffi culties many
years later and came face to face with the aging Burns. There are stories of the
relationship of various people with their gods, often played out in the legal
system where individual beliefs were parsed by experts, judges and parents,
some well-meaning, some simply tyrannical. The effects of a biblical story on
one man, of a whimsical Wiccan and devotees of cults, among other stories,
make for an interesting mixture of how religion effects our daily lives. The
stories are told in a wry, sometimes humorous manner, thought-provoking in
the end."
