Wrestling with Gods Book Launch

A mechanical android Jesus in a futuristic Shinto shrine, a Muslim woman trying to get closer to Allah through surgery, a pro-fighter trying to get out of his contract and into Nirvana, a Catholic priest verifying an appearance of Fatima on Mars, an African village both fearful and dependent on the Scorched Man to guide the dead, a vampire in a residential school, and a woman who talks to a coy mermaid about theology while teaching her to read...these are just a few of the 25 unique and thought-provoking offerings within Wrestling with Gods.  

Join contributing authors Megan Fennell and Halli Lilliburn for the launch of the eighteenth book in the Tesseracts series at the Crossings branch on May 6 at 7:00 PM.
