Authors Peter Senese and Robert Geis join forces in Cloning Christ, a brilliantly written theological thriller which provokes the question of how genetic science and faith may co-exist in today's world. The intricately developed plot, with originally created characters who are cast behind the backdrop of an assortment of scientific and religious perspectives held by people of the world today, challenge the reader at every turn to think through these current issues as the fast-paced thriller evolves into a story of good versus evil.
In this useful parable for our times of violent religious fervor, a geneticist and amateur archaeologist discovers a two-thousand-year-old cross and remains that stir up so much furor that people are killed in the fight to possess them. But the threat of being able to clone another Jesus is really the back story; the bigger issue is how to reconcile Christianity's respect for fetal life with science's new ability to create new life forms from stem cells and cloning. With a reading that smoothes out the long sentences and makes every word count, and a nice attempt at musical enhancement, the audio is entertaining and thought- provoking.
