First, Isabelle Allende writes a Zorro novel

… now guess who’s writing a Jesus novel!

Thanks to Professor Elizabeth Rambo for the tip!

“I’m not a priest,” Rice writes…. “I can’t be one. I’ll never be able to go to the altar of the Lord and say the words of consecration at Mass, `This is my body. This is my blood.’ No, I can’t work that magnificent Eucharistic miracle. But in humility, I have attempted something transformative which we writers dare to call a miracle in the imperfect human idiom we possess. It’s to bring Him here in the form a story, and that story is Christ The Lord.”
