Apparent due to a skeptical comment I had previously left at Speculative Catholic about Anne Rice’s new book "Christ the Lord, Out of Egypt" Anne Rice left a comment in reply. Perhaps I am guilty of judging a book not by its cover, but by a single review. So I look forward for a review by Steve at Speculative Catholic since he has ordered it. Since I have read and enjoyed most of her books it would be nice to read this one also without theologically flinching.
It does make me want to contrast the Vampire Lestat and the Jesus contrast. Lestat maintained eternal life by living off of he blood of his victims. Jesus became a victim for us and gives us eternal life by his most Precious Blood. Lestat could only live in the Dark and Jesus is the Light. Lestat could not bear the cross and Jesus bore the cross.
