The Heretic PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Heretic free pdf The Heretic began with a rhetorical question the author posed to himself for a comedy show: 'If there is a God, why would He create us? If He's perfect, all knowing, there's nothing He can gain from us. He must have been so incredibly bored and lonely, that He created us for his own entertainment.'Now a dialogue of voices performed by a single actor and his alter-ego, the play opens up a discourse where creation interrogates religion- atheists engage believers- and secularists confront theists in a contemporary world fractured by an increasing proliferation of fundamentalisms.This story of a Roman Catholic man tormented by the religious anxieties of his youth, who resolves to become Jesus Murphy, an evangelical atheist, makes us all believers - in ourselves.
