Redemption in drinking blood...

I am soooooo fascinated by this amazing story and I can't wait to read the book!
I am sure you are familiar with Anne Rice and her Vampire books and the movies spin off: Interview with a Vampire but did you hear about her new endeavor? God is truly at work in this culture. I have preached and taught for years about how God was going to use Goliath's sword to cut of Goliath's head and I see it on so many fronts. It is an exciting time to be able to engage our culture with the truth. It excites me that God is showing up in the most unlikely places! He is not afraid to incarnate himself in Nazareth again...those places that religious people say nothing good can come from.
You amaze me again...I am so glad I serve you Jesus, you rock my world.
I pray I will live a life as daring as your example to me. You give me stones...

I loved this line:
In that afterword she calls Christ "the ultimate supernatural hero ... the ultimate immortal of them all."
If her attempt at portraying the early years of Jesus' development are as solid as Cameron Crowe's in Batman Begins, I'm in.
p.s. reminds of a couple songs...
Audio Adrenaline "Never gonna be as big as Jesus" and "Original Superman" by Pillar. (lyrics below, compliments of
Original Superman :: PILLAR

He heals the sick He saves the lost and died for you in case you've forgot, man
He'll jump a building in a single bound
I once was lost but now I'm found
He needs no mask or cape or gown
all He needs is His holy crown
it's time for you to understand Jesus Christ the Original Superman
He'll be your hero in the end. He is that one true superfriend
Kryptonite can't slow him down nothin' can at all
He's always there for you. He'll pick you up if you should fall
He came to earth in the flesh and
Performing miracles and died for man
A forty day fast is more than I could take
he did it for you and he did it for my sake
Ye of little faith he said to them raised his hand and all was calm again
It's time for you to understand
Jesus Christ the Original Superman
up up and away He's saving souls in a new way
Just like Superman was there He's always there to save the day
he works through all of us
Through Him we have the power
It's time to unify so we can constantly devour
The devil and all of his games we need not be ashamed
Of anything we can do that we can glorify His name
Many names he has been given
Prince of Peace Son of Man
Here's one more for his list.

Okay, so it wasn't Cameron Crowe who directed Batman Begins. It was Christopher Nolan. It was awesome either way. Hey Mike you'd be proud of me. I used the Book of Mike for reference (aka The Internet Movie Database) If anyone has never seen it, is the most comprehensive source online for movies.
